SideWinder Puzzle

SideWinder Puzzle Difficulty level:   Difficult   (level 4)

Actual dimensions:   15" long

Material:   Laser-cut wood

Price:   $15.00 U.S.

Objective:   While holding the fork in your hand and pointing it away from you, place the ball in the end of the slot near the handle.   The goal is, with one hand holding the handle, to roll the ball over the open end of the fork, flip the fork over and roll the ball back to the handle on the other side of the fork... all in one motion.

Description:   There is a metal version of this which uses magnetism to hold the rolling piece to the rails... but this is not as easy.   The magnetic version holds the rolling piece onto the rails.   On this one, you will need timing and technique to be successful!   At first glance, the SideWindwe puzzle will look like a 'piece-of-cake', then reality sinks in!   There is a solution... just keep practicing.

Each puzzle is supplied with an "Objective Sheet" that explains what it is that you are supposed to do.   This sheet also includes a picture/drawing of the puzzle in the unsolved condition, (similar to the one at the top of this page), so there is a reference to look at when putting it back together.

Puzzle solutions are also included with the shipment but are not sealed in the puzzle wrapper.   This is done so that the purchaser can make the decision as to when to give the solution to the person that is receiving the puzzle, (as a gift, for example).
