Zollstcke

Zollstcke

Zollstcke Zollstöcke (or folding rulers) is an attractive packing puzzle by Jean-Claude Constantin.  The aim is to fit all four “folding” rulers into the frame.  The ruler pieces themselves do not actually fold, making the task of fitting the unwieldy segments into the framed area a daunting task.  This puzzle is actually quite large, measuring in at approximately 30 cm (12 inches) long, making it the perfect size for a coffee table feature attraction.  A great puzzle for the wood lover or carpenter. Made in laser-cut wood by Jean-Claude Constantin. 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.

Trying to see how the pieces fit and re-assessing where they can go if they do not fit is a good exercise to check and re-evaluate the choices. Each piece can only come in one place, so there is no compromise and negotiation that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to continually re-evaluate his decisions and learns to be patient with the process because it is an integral part of the game.
