This gorgeous piece is one of Hanayama’s flagship puzzles. Once you have the “Cast Marble Puzzle” in your hands, you’ll quickly realize why this has been one of the best-selling puzzles of the last decade.
The fascinating design of this puzzle brings together all types of different geometric figures in unique ways unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Instead of separating into two pieces (like most Hanayama Puzzles), this Level 5 puzzle consists of four total parts—adding a new layer of difficulty to this puzzle for adults and kids.
These distinct engineering decisions put this puzzle on the high-end of the “Intermediate” scale. We wouldn’t say it’s an expert puzzle, but it’s also not an easy puzzle like our “Cast Loop Puzzle”, “Cast Diamond Puzzle” or “Cast Harmony Puzzle”. Instead, it’s better compared to our “Cast Cyclone Puzzle”.
As with all Vanishing Inc. Wonders puzzles and brainteasers, this chic matte “Cast Marble Puzzle” is a beautiful conversation piece in any puzzle collection. You’ll display it proudly long after you’ve solved it.
Here’s a tip for solving the “Cast Marble Puzzle”: If you do manage to separate the four pieces, make sure to take careful note of the surface of each section.
