Viking Box - Invisible

Viking Box – Invisible The Viking Box is a combination of maze and sequential puzzle. To open it, you must solve the maze puzzle on the top of the box. It makes a great money maze puzzle gift holder. You can put a gift of cash, jewelry or a gift card inside and then the recipient has to solve the puzzle to get it out! To solve the puzzle, you must manipulate the combination of turning wheels, metal balls and sliding pieces. The Viking Box Puzzle is a difficult puzzle for the truly dedicated puzzler. This “invisible” version is different than the original because it has a wooden plate that covers the mechanisms on the top of the puzzle, giving you only a glimpse of the wheels and balls through the curved slots.  The sides of the box are made of wood, but the bottom is made of clear acrylic. Jean-Claude Constantin lives in Germany, where he designs and manufactures many different wood and metal puzzles, as well as magic tricks and other intellectual toys and games.

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.
