Part of the True Genius Collection. Early civilizations shaped our world by solving puzzles. Faced with a problem, they were able to visualize and execute a creative solution with few resources. These brilliant innovations are the foundations of our modern society and the mark of true genius.
In the summer of 1901, a mysterious contraption was discovered deep under water in a shipwreck off Point Glyphadia, on the Greek island of Antikythera. Since its discovery, the “Antikythera mechanism” has often been referred to as the world’s first known analogue computer. Using technology that was lost to antiquity until the 14th century, this baffling mechanism was allegedly used to predict astronomical positions and eclipses, as well as the 4-year cycle of the Olympic games.
Inspired by the unparalleled true genius of ancient Grecian astronomers, this puzzle challenges you to turn the dials until all 12 columns add up to 42.

I’m surprised there is not a single review on here. This puzzle is a numeric masterpiece. It’s definitely harder than the Hanayama cast puzzle series, just to give you a taste of the difficulty you are in for. This belongs in every puzzle collection. My only complaint is the quality of the manufacturing of the wooden puzzle. It is nice to handle but also seems quite fragile, so handle with care. Since the puzzle is so fun, not going to deduct points. Still yet to solve at this time along with that clunky Cast Hourglass. I think this puzzle is much more intricate than cast hourglass however, so I would say it is obviously more difficult.
