Gordian's Knot

Gordian's Knot

Spring 2006 Puzzles
Ages: 8 & Up
Manufacturer: ThinkFun Inc.
Price: $9.99
Review:
Six interlocking pieces of plastic form the “knot,” and the goal is to separate them by sliding the pieces against each other so one piece at a time can be removed until all six pieces are disengaged. A group of eager testers shunned the solution book but succeeded by taking turns. When each got stumped, the partially-solved knot was passed to the next player. For those less patient, the solution book illustrates the 69 (!) steps to separate the pieces, and to reassemble the knot to challenge the next player.
