Tripod Puzzle

Tripod Puzzle Difficulty level:   Difficult   (level 4)

Actual dimensions:   4.25" Long

Material:   Wood

Price:   $5.00 U.S.

Objective:   Create a tripod with the (2) connected dowels and one of the other single dowels, as in the picture.   Then, with the remaining dowel, lift the entire tripod as one assembly.   You can only touch the tripod components with the remaining dowel - nothing else.

Description:   At first glance, this feat does not look too difficult... until you try!   The Tripod puzzle probably provides more fun for the folks that are watching than the ones trying to solve it.   Eventually everyone pitches in to assist with the solution!   When the answer is provided, everyone usually agrees that it is not something that they would have thought of.

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).

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).
