Ebony Maze Burr Puzzle by Kagen Sound (Schaefer)

Sold out
Being sold on consignment from a private collection.

Awarded both the Grand Prize and People's Choice at the Nob Yoshigahara Puzzle Design Competition. The committee declared this "The Puzzle of the Year".

Described by Kagen as "The Maze Burr is a puzzle version of the Rune Box. Each side of the Maze Burr has two sliding plates. One moves up and down. The other moves side to side. A 3x3 maze etched into the upper plate, and a peg connected to the lower plate restricts the movements. Furthermore, certain plates must be moved out of the way of other plates. The position of the 3x3 mazes about the puzzle determines the complexity of the solution. The solution can be anywhere from 7 moves to 116 moves to unlock the puzzle. Once unlocked, the puzzle can be taken apart and rebuilt into any other configuration."

One of only Thirty crafted!
