This is a satisfyingly systematic maze puzzle brought to you by Jean Claude Constantin! The shaped tracks in the puzzle display like an "N", "5" or a "2", hence the name of this series of puzzles that is available in different sized grids. This particular version of the series features a 3x3 grid of pegs and channels.
Your objective is to free a small metal ball from the maze through the exit hole. This is accomplished by maneuvering the wooden sliders around the fixed metal pegs until the opening is clear of obstruction. A very methodical and intriguing puzzle!
Jean-Claude Constantin lives in Germany, where he designs and manufactures many different wood and metal puzzle, as well as magic tricks. Please note that wood colors can vary.
