Genuine Article is one of the most difficult Tavern Puzzles in our collection. In this case, the goal is not to remove the rings (there are many) but rather, the long "shuttle" piece in the middle. A challenging variation for those who have already bested Tinkers Bell and Smartypants.
Difficulty Level: 9 of 10 | Materials: Steel | Made in USA
Metal Tavern Puzzles date back to the 1800s when they were first constructed by ironworkers to entertain their friends in the local pub after a hard day’s work.
These modern versions are forged from 6mm steel by a museum-trained traditional blacksmith and exemplify the durable, brain-jangling appeal that has stood the test of time. Each Tavern Puzzle measures approximately 10.5" long and comes packaged in a drawstring muslin bag with an information sheet that shows the puzzle and the objective (solutions are not included!). Remember, these puzzles are mechanical in nature and do not rely on force or trickery to solve.
