The puzzle that made a US President admit defeat...
Beginner's beware, this is not a puzzle for the faint of heart.
Our Tavern Puzzles have been among the most popular puzzles offered as part of our Vanishing Inc. Wonders brand.
Handmade in America by trained blacksmiths, these gorgeous metal puzzles are amazing replicas of the popular blacksmith-forged puzzles found in taverns and bars centuries ago. Beyond being fun puzzles to solve, each one is like a unique piece of art that you'll display proudly.
One piece of feedback we always heard though was that they aren't often the most difficult puzzles. Beyond the challenging "Heart's Desire Tavern Puzzle", our Tavern Puzzle collection has been mostly geared toward intermediate and beginner puzzler solvers.
That all changes now, as we are thrilled to offer the "Dirty Dog Tavern Puzzle".
Puzzle lovers may recognize this name because the "Dirty Dog Tavern Puzzle" has actually been around for more than 30 years. It's one of the most famous and bestselling puzzles of all-time. In fact, former US President George H.W. Bush bought one and eventually had to admit defeat by writing a letter asking for the solution (you can see it in the photos above!)
If you're looking for new ways to challenge your brain, you can't go wrong with the "Dirty Dog Tavern Puzzle." To solve the "Dirty Dog Tavern Puzzle", you must combine a specific set of steps and sequences. Most importantly though, this puzzle requires patience and precision. Strength or force is not needed (and should never be used) to solve this puzzle.
You're also getting two puzzles for the price of once. Because, once you've removed the shuttle and separated the pieces, you then need to figure out how to reassemble them together to "officially" solve the puzzle.
Comes packaged in a drawstring cloth bag with information sheet.
