Galileo

Galileo A fairly straightforward packing puzzle designed by Siebenstein-Spiele founder Jürgen Reiche. The objective is to fit all five pieces out of the frame and return them, but the corners of the puzzle are blocked by acrylic pieces, meaning that some sliding may be required. Made in laser-cut wood, acrylic, and stainless steel by Siebenstein-Spiele. Based in Munster, Germany, Siebenstein-Spiele was founded in 1992. Although the company is mainly known for board games, Siebenstein-Spiele also makes many wooden puzzles, several of which have been designed by company founder Jürgen Reiche.

The simplicity of jigsaw puzzles is deceptive. While the concept is very straightforward – find the pieces and fix them together – there is a surprising level of mental activity required to carry out the steps needed to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are required to undertake what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to an overall pattern. More importantly, solving jigsaw puzzles is a great work out for the brain and can actually have therapeutic benefits.
