A combination dexterity bottle based on old 'proportion' puzzles, where the objective is to measure out a certain volume given a set of different volumes. Several different puzzles are possible here: by rolling the dice, you are given the objective of the puzzle. For example, the
photo shows the numbers five and two. In this case, by either completely filling or completely emptying any compartment, you must measure out five balls and two balls in adjacent compartments, with the spare balls in the third.
Made in plastic, laser-cut wood, acrylic, and stainless steel by Jean-Claude Constantin. Jean-Claude Constantin lives in Germany, where he designs and manufactures many different wood and metal puzzles, as well as magic tricks.

This puzzle is not demanding, in fact it is overly simple in my opinion. And while aesthetically it is quite pleasing to the eye, in terms of functionality as a puzzle it is quite lacking. All save one of the parts for movement were very sticky for want of a better term, and I found more of my concentration was in just getting the parts to properly move as opposed to the actual game play. The over simplicity of game play combined with the stickiness factor of all save one of the moving parts, makes this a very overpriced disappointment. I definitely do not recommend this game to other puzzle lovers which is too bad, as I have most definitely enjoyed other Constantin games that I have purchased.
