Product Description

Following the success of the 'Get off the Earth Puzzle' a variation called, 'The Lost Man', possibly inspired by a successful musical of the time, was released in 1897. It consists of men and lanterns encircling the globe. Push up the handle on the back of the card and you will find eight men and eight lanterns. Move the handle down and there are nine men and eight lanterns. Where does he come from?

The cardboard that Sam Loyd used for his puzzle cards was specially selected by him. He wanted to ensure that it had the right balance of texture and thickness, to not only enhance his graphics, but to also give you the best in-hand embellishment when holding the card to solve it.

The Sam Loyd Company has been able to recreate that same cardboard, as first used by Sam Loyd, using original sources. The cardboard is exclusively manufactured for our use and goes by the product code No.1868, in tribute to the release of the very first puzzle card.

To ensure that you experience the puzzle cards just the way Sam Loyd intended you to, be sure to buy only cards created by The Sam Loyd Company. Each carry the Sam Loyd logo, which is a registered trademark and your guarantee of the highest quality.

I couldn't pass this one up at this price. Here's another Sam Lloyd classic that will have you scratching your head for a while. I think his puzzles are brilliant. I think the only thing more impressive than this puzzle is that he actually conceived such an idea and made it a reality.
