Safecracker 40

Safecracker 40 Fantastic and unique puzzle based on a 1911 design. The object is to get each of the 16 columns of numbers to add to 40 at the same time. Can you find the combination? There is a base ring and then 4 rings that rotate on top. To complicate matters, the top sets of rings are all notched, so they will expose or hide some of the numbers on the ring below as the rings are turned. Makes for a lot of possible combinations! It essentially turns the 16 columns into 24 possible columns. Its quite a challenge. Beautifully made in USA by Creative Crafthouse at their Spring Hill shop with highest quality alder rings and laser engraved numbers. Ergonomically sized to fit the palm nicely. It will come unsolved in the package, included is a picture of the solved puzzle.

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.
