This work was designed for the Karakuri Puzzle Party in Hakone 2018. Designer Hiroshi Iwahara wondered, “Is it possible to make items of system such as Binary or Ternary with a very clear design?”
There are only 3 “drawers”. It is the minimum number that needed to fully enjoy the system. It takes 50 moves to open. When all the 3 “drawers” are correctly maneuvered, you can open the bottom compartment. The number of moves has increased in this work as compared to the Visible 3-Ary (Ternary) version. As might be expected, it will take time to solve this puzzle.
Karakuri Creation Group has beautiful puzzle boxes with unique opening mechanisms and wonderful artistry.
