1 = Moderate/Starter;
2 = Intermediate / Challenging;
3 = Difficult / Severe;
4 = Very Difficult / Very,Very Severe
Your experience may differ.
Levels 2 are good brain teasers which require learning multiple (6 to 8) consecutive movements to release the ring or shuttle. Many puzzlers might expend thousands of moves before reaching full success. Solve using clever movements and positioning of the various metal pieces. NO FORCE is ever required.
There are two levels of solving all blacksmith puzzles. The first is removing a ring & triangle. The second is knowing "HOW" one removed it and having the ability to assemble and disassemble the parts at will.
Puzzle comes in small cloth drawstring bag. Then packaged a plain white, solid cardboard box. Solution included.
