Designed by John Moores in collaboration with Juno Yananose and Brian Young. Manufactured by Mr Puzzle in 2014 and presented at IPP34 - August 2014 in London, UK.
This particular puzzle came from John Moores' personal set, part of a collection of 12 puzzles sent to him prior to the IPP meeting in 2014. It is accompanied by a print out of an email to John Moores from Mr Puzzle discussing the shipment, finalization of the solution, and praise from Brian about how well the puzzle turned out. The page also has the set of solution instructions provided to the IPP. The bottom of the instructions are cut off and missing a line or 2 at the bottom of the page.
It has been solved and re-assembled only once.
The puzzle was gifted to me by John Moores in 2014, and am not a puzzle collector, hence my 0 rating.
The object of the puzzle is to ultimately find Big Ben (which is this case is actually quite small, otherwise the puzzle would be almost as big as the real Queen Elizabeth Tower). Along the way you will also find a representation of Queen Elizabeth’s crown; no jewels included though! To do this you are only allowed to use tools supplied in the puzzle. There are magnets and springs in the puzzle, but you do not need to hit this puzzle to release any locks.
This puzzle is part of the category of puzzles known as Progressive Move or sometimes called Sequential Discovery.
The puzzle is designed in such a way that each discovery you make entices you further into the puzzles, to discover the next sequence or level, getting steadily more difficult as you go.
Reassembling the locks in this puzzle and setting the 4 clock faces all back at 9 o’clock is part of the challenge. It's not necessarily just ‘reverse order’ making this part of the puzzle almost as challenging as disassembly.
The puzzle is made from Papua New Guinean Rosewood, Western Australian Jarrah and Queensland Silver Ash. There are tools inside the puzzle made from brass and some magnets are included.
Size: 220mm high to the tip of the spire. 55mm x 55mm clock face to clock face.
Shipping calculated after purchase and will be by USPS Priority Mail domestic in the US or international. Buyer will pay mandatory 2% insurance on top of shipping cost.
