Cast Cage is a medium difficulty puzzle. It is not particularly intimidating, and a puzzle others will want to “try”; especially if they’ve just seen someone else solve it. Like many puzzles of this type it is much more of a challenge to remove the star than to replace it. Obviously the star must be in the right position to get out and it will come out of only one opening. It is also obvious that it cannot exit via either hole in the ends of the cage. Other than that, you’re on your own. The other [Read More...]

My first impression of this cube is that my mind will not be able to comprehend what is happening when I try to solve it. After watching this video I’m still under that same impression. The Pillowed Hexaminx looks like a very exciting cube to try out and enjoy for a very long time.

An ideal puzzle to give to someone who is absolutely convinced they “could never solve a puzzle, so there’s no use trying”. Just to convince them how easy it is; [Read More...]
