Today's puzzle is a simple little thing made by mini. Our local Toys R. Us has a bunch of these in and I thought "I'm pretty clever, I'll buy a bunch and solve them in an afternoon." And then I woke up.
Well, you can't say I'm not confident. I bought 4 of them. I solved 1. So far the mini puzzles are wining. But I'm not defeated yet. Can't keep a good puzzler down.
This is one of those wood/rope/ring things. The object is quite simple really-take off the ring. (I find myself repeating that phrase about the simple object. I really need to learn some new vocabulary.) A long time ago I was quite good with these things. Not so much now. I guess you can get out of practice and just forget how to think. Add to that the not talking to me and these puzzles just got knottier and knottier.
And that my friends is what makes these puzzles such great fun! The knots. I dare anyone to solve a rope puzzle without tying it into at least one knot. I swear it just cannot be done!
