Puzzle Master is a Canadian distributor of a large assortment of disentanglement puzzles, brain teasers, jigsaws, puzzle rings, trick locks, boomerangs, chess sets, etc. The company started because of an interest the owner, Allan Stein, had in collecting wire puzzles. Allan collected these puzzles for a few years before he thought of making them himself. Once he found out that he was able to make the puzzles successfully he thought “Why don’t I try to sell some of the puzzles at craft shows and see if there are people who like them as much as I do”. At the craft shows he found that not only did the people like the puzzles, they loved them. These craft shows were the first way that Puzzle Master marketed these puzzles.
After selling at the craft shows for a few years, Allan decided to try and sell at some of the malls in Saskatoon. He rented a temporary location 2 weeks prior to Christmas and was totally amazed how quickly the puzzles sold. He subsequently ran out of the puzzles in 7 days. It was at that point that he realized that he had a business that was going to be viable. To this day we still have many businesses who sell at temporary locations a few weeks prior to Christmas.
In the beginning Allan made traditional puzzles that had been invented hundreds and even thousands of years ago. Now Allan is taking those traditional designs and adding his own unique touch.
This puzzle is posted at a level 60 meaning it’s rather tricky. As in, it`s going to be a bit challenging, but not quite as challenging as other. Of course, it`s not going to be super simple either. I was able to figure this puzzle out, but it did take me a while. I`m not the best with puzzles, such as this one, but I enjoy them. They challenge the mind and it honestly gives me something to dow hen I`m in bed watching TV. Rather than staring at my phone; which is bad for the eyes anyway. For my husband, on the other hand, he was able to solve this within a couple minutes. He`s good at puzzles and figuring things out. I didn`t time him so I couldn`t tell you the exact length it took, but it wasn`t difficult for him. Just a new puzzle that took him a bit to figure out. It probably also helps that he knows how to perform magic tricks as well, which just helps him complete things like this and figure them out much easier than I.
Aside from the solving it and enjoy it, this puzzle is a nice quality and well made. The wood is a pretty good quality. It`s smooth so no splinters were made in the process of solving. I am totally satisfied with this puzzle. It’s affordable and perfect for anyone who enjoys puzzles or just having something to fiddle with. It’s not heavy either. I have mild carpal tunnel in my wrists, which can act up if I’m holding something heavy, and I was able to enjoy this – just to give a bit of perspective. So, of course, this was another successful puzzle from Puzzle Master!
