Introducing another puzzle from the Dutch prodigy, Oskar. This labyrinth style puzzle, done up in the shape of an egg, gained prize-winning honors at the 2nd Annual Puzzle Design Competition in Antwerp. The French puzzle name when translated into English is quite appropriately titled. ‘The Egg’, which of course is the key word here. Simply put, the goal here is to separate the two pieces and then put them back together. This task will prove to be trickier than you think. -NOB 2004-

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.
