This is a three dimensional puzzle which uses wooden rings at different levels to create a unique link puzzle. At the bottom of the puzzle a red cord winds around the base of a red post. Try to unwind and free the cord. The more wooden rings, the more difficult the puzzle. From a beginner level of 2 rings the puzzles progress to 9 rings. All in all 8 puzzles tease the brain. All people, of all ages, love these puzzles. The first step is to maneuver the red cord from around the base of the red post over to the next post. Open your mind, don't rush, you have plenty of time. With an open mind quietly wait for creativity to take over, let the almost imperceptible flashes of inspiration guide you. Once you are accustomed to the puzzle you will be able to solve it without thinking.

Advice1  With an innocent mind contemplate quiet flowing waters.
Advice2  Put aside brute force and sharp tools, use only your mind and body.
Advice3  Never give up!
Advice4  Always redo what you have undone

This puzzle operates on the binary system. As the ring levels increase, cord maneuverings double. Beginners start at 2-3 rings. More advanced levels start at 4-5 rings. Finally those who have lots of courage and inspiration advance to the 6 ring puzzle! What? The 6 leveled ring puzzle is not tough enough? So why not try the ultra esoteric 9 level ring puzzle!
