3 out of 5 stars
I'm the puzzle fanatic in our house, but when I found nothing but dead ends in this puzzle, I gave up, temporarily. My wife then solved it in under five minutes. Oh, the humility! She had a good laugh and then I was determined to find the path to the exit. I completely agree with the previous reviews. The ring tends to bind up as you rotate it through the holes. It takes a dozen or more steps to solve this, so it's hard to memorize the route.
Easy, but fun nonetheless. There are a few "dead ends" to make it interesting, and it's a good one to put down for a while after solving, as you probably wont remember the path in or out after a while. Also the movement of the ring through the holes may be a little finicky, but after a few solves it will "break-in" and become much smoother. I find it easier to move around if you keep the slotted half of the ring on top, turning it back & forth instead of round & round.
Not hard, just tedious. I don't feel like I used my brain to solve this. I feel like it was mainly trial and error.
Not too difficult, but the solution is hard to remember. It is basically a maze, but hard to see "the exit". Nice reproduction of an old puzzle.
