Chain is a level 6 cast metal brain teaser puzzle where one attempts to completely separate all 3 pieces and then rejoin. The puzzle is unique in that it can be re-assembled in 3 different ways. Pieces are distinguished by either one, two or three dots on the end. Reassemble so that dot number one is in the middle, then so that the piece with two dots is in the middle, and finally the piece with three dots is in the middle.
This brain teaser is a great challenge for anyone who enjoys mechanical style take-apart challenges. Recommended for ages 12 to 105 years. Some bright 8 to 11 years olds may also find this a fascinating challenge. The solution requires clever movements. NO force is ever required. Some may solve initially but not know (remember) exactly how the pieces came apart. Re-assembly is also a fun challenge.
Rated by the manufacturer as a level 6 difficulty (on a scale of 1 to 6 where 6 is the most challenging.
