Adults will also be challenged by these puzzles again and again, this box set makes a great desk toy or coffee table game to share with colleagues and friends.

Star Puzzle:This beautiful and intriguing puzzle is made of six identical wooden pieces that interlock to form a 3-D star. Releasing the star is easy, but putting it back together is much more difficult than it looks. The smooth feel of these precision-cut pieces make this puzzle a joy to play with and the high quality of the wood and craftsmanship ensure it will last for years to come. Once you’ve solved the Star Puzzle it makes a beautiful art piece to display on a bookshelf or coffee table for others to enjoy.

Burr puzzle:Burr Puzzles have been found in Europe and Asia since the 18th century. Burr Puzzles can take on many shapes, from the traditional burr seed shape, to balls, stars, and more. This classic six-piece puzzle contains three sets of rod pairs, which need to intersect to form the burr seed shaped.

String Puzzle:This string puzzle is deceptively simple in appearance and surprisingly challenging in practice. Try to manipulate the string to release the wooden pieces.

C.C.O Puzzle:This beautifully shaped puzzle seems to have no end or beginning, that’s how well the three pieces fit together! The pieces are in the shape of letters- C, C, and O. We like to think the letters stand for “clever”, “cunning”, and “obfuscating”, all these words perfectly describe this perplexing puzzle.  This puzzle offers a unique challenge when releasing and rebuilding the 3D cross shape.

Pyramid 5 Piece:This pyramid puzzle is made of five uniquely shaped wooden pieces. This puzzle is not as simple as it looks! Once assembled, the finely crafted and polished pyramid makes a wonderful art object to display on a desk or bookshelf. Leave it on your coffee table and invite your friends to try their hand (and their minds) at re-building the ancient and beautiful pyramid!

Gordian Pillar:According to ancient legend, an intricate knot was tied by Gordius, the king of Phrygia, and remained tied for hundred of years until an oracle decreed that the man who untied the knot would become the ruler of Asia. Alexander the Great came to Gordian, sliced the knot with his sword, and went on to rule a great empire. Since this time the Gordian Knot has served as a metaphor for any exceedingly complicated or intricate problem. This Gordian Pillar will challenge your patience and creativity as you struggle to solve a puzzle worthy of one of the most powerful leaders in history.
