This wonderful puzzle that is perfect to have on your living room table, waiting for someone to pick it up.
The object is to arrange the pegs (numbers 1-8) such that no consecutive number touches on any connecting line. For example number 1 cannot connect with number 2; number 2 cannot connect with 3 or 1; number 5 cannot connect with 4 or 6; etc. It's an intriguing puzzle that draws people in. It looks easy but once you start rearranging the pegs the complexity of the task reveals itself.
Creator DIamond Jim Tyler was inspired to create "Consecutive Conundrum" by a puzzle in his mentor and friend Martin Gardner's book The Colossal Book of Short Puzzles and Problems.
This wooden puzzle is made in the USA of hardwood that is built to last a lifetime. The pegs were made square to keep the numbers oriented properly. The numbers are laser engraved, not inked, so they will last across countless uses.
Comes with a base and a cover with the title and instructions laser engraved into the surface. "Consecutive Conundrum" is something you'll proudly display on your desk. It's a great conversation starter and you will enjoy how it perplexes others.
