You may not know by looking at it but this puzzle dates back to ancient times. The legend says it was 400 years before Alexander the Great took up the challenge and succeeded in solving Gordian’s Knot. Do you dare try and take up the challenge? Hopefully it takes you a little less than 400 years.

The puzzle works with interlocking pieces that move according to what pieces you have already moved. Although there are many possibilities for what you can move, be careful because there’s only one correct answer. If you do find yourself getting stuck, don’t panic because there is a solution manual included for that little bit of help.

What’s included in the box:

  • Gordian’s knot made up of 6 pieces
  • Instruction booklet

Recommended for ages 8 and over. Not suitable for children aged three years and under as it contains small pieces that may be a choking hazard for small children.

Packaging size: 250 x 170 x 95 mm
