Product Description

The Pony Puzzle was not only one of Sam Loyd's first puzzles but, according to him, his most successful.

It was suggested to him in an odd way.

He was returning from Europe on the steamer with Andrew G. Curtain, then Minister to Russia, and once famous as War Governor of Pennsylvania, and they were discussing the White Horse Monument on Uffington Hill, Berkshire, England.

The is the colossal figure of a white horse engraved on the side of the hill, visible for many miles. It is said to be more then a thousand years old.

Mr Curtain thought it might contain a suggestion for a puzzle. Sam Loyd accepted the suggestion, took a piece of black paper and a pair of scissors, and in a few minutes produced The Pony Puzzle. The actual puzzle on the front is the way it originally looked.

Over the years more than a thousand million copies of this puzzle were sold.

The "Commemorative Edition" has been created so that everyone can once again enjoy Sam Loyd's puzzle.

Cut out the six pieces of the pony separately, and see in how many ways they can be arranged to form another pony.
