This wooden puzzle maze is actually a sliding brain teaser.
There are 4 wooden columns to this puzzle and they are covered by 2 layers of poly-glass, so the middle layer is the wooden puzzle.
There are also 5 rows of large metal pins (4 on each row) and they play a center role in solving this puzzle.
The object of this puzzle is to completely remove the 2 center wooden column from the rest of the puzzle.
These 2 center wooden column can move independently, however, they may be blocked by a metal pin that is not located in a place allowing the wooden column to move.
If you try to move the metal pin it will actually move all 4 metal pins sharing the same row... and this action may block the other wooden column from sliding.
As you understand, each move you try to do will affect other areas within this amazing maze puzzle so having the 2 center wooden columns out of this maze is a very challenging task.
This puzzle is made of wood and transparent plastic, which gives it very unique and fancy appearance. The wood used is all natural and the different colors of the pieces are because different kinds of wood are used, which makes it very special to have as part of your collection.
