Cast Cage

Cast Cage Note: Our level rating system is different than Hanayama’s.  Hanayama’s level 1 is equivalent to our level 5…. level 6 is equivalent to our level 10. This brass puzzle was first introduced to me by Prague’s own Professor Bakalar. I borrowed it in Atlanta and returned it to him in Luxembourg half a year later. While in my possession, I managed to replicate it, with full permission, of course. This Cast Puzzle version may even be better than the original. It definitely remains one of the more amusing puzzles. The key idea with this one is it’s ‘cage’. -NOB 1996-

The simplicity of the puzzles is misleading. Although the concept is quite simple – finding the pieces and repairing them together – an amazing level of mental activity is required to complete the necessary steps to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are necessary to achieve what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to a general pattern. More importantly, solving puzzles is great work for the brain and can have therapeutic benefits.
