A fascinating metal puzzle made from aluminum and chrome plated in contrasting colors, silver and gold, the Lucky Clover will need more than blind luck to be solved. Indeed, as a difficulty level 10 the puzzle will put all your skills to the test as you try to separate the four pieces. If this isn’t difficult enough for you, try to reassemble it back.

3 out of 5 stars
Sleek and stylish design. Compact and practical. Surprised it gets a 10. It is difficult to get it but the method is not overly complex since it has limited possible movements unlike a rubixs cube, that's a real 10. Great puzzle though, solution is on youtube.
A very nice puzzle. To solve it using the original idea is indeed very difficult. But if force is used, then there could be different ways to solve.
This puzzle is poorly made.
After 5 month of not active use, my puzzle broke.. :( As I had mentioned previously, it is really made very poor. Instead of this one consider buying one of Hanayamas - they are really robust.
Really hard! Can't get it apart or back to original state, solution doesn't really help either, not my favorite...
This puzzle is very good, but unfortunately it isn't made well. It appear to be heavy, but it is not so heavy. In the picture above it flawless, but mine has little bubbles on all the surface. Besides, one part is a bit deformed so it doesn't fit well after being assembled. Finally, the parts doesn't stick firmly to each other so it falls apart immediately after you pick it from the table. However, the idea of the puzzle is great. It is relatively easy to take apart, but 3 times as hard to put together. You will really enjoy calculating all the combination in which these pieces can be put together! So, despite of poor implementation, I highly recommend this puzzle! It is very beautiful when assembled, no one passed my desk without touching it. So, 5 stars for the idea and 3 for implementation - avg. is 4
I liked this puzzle; my 4 star rating comes from my personal preferece for a puzzle to 'snap' together; this one just lies flat when complete. A word about the separating pieces/force issue: the 4 pieces do come completely apart! Lots of fun!
