N5-10

N5-10 This is a large and satisfyingly systematic maze puzzle brought to you by Jean Claude Constantin!  The shaped tracks in the puzzle display like an “N” or a “5”, hence the name of this series of puzzles that is available in different sized grids.  This particular version of the series features a 10×10 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 complex, 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.

Trying to see how pieces fit and re-assessing where they might go when they don’t fit is a good exercise in checking and re-evaluating choices. Each piece can only go in to one place so there is none of the compromising and trading-off that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to constantly re-evaluate their decisions, and teaches patience with the process as it is an integral part of the game.
