Don`t Break the Bottle
Erno Rubik really started something back in the eighties when he invented the Rubik's Cube. Ever since then, we just can't get enough of three dimensional puzzles and brain teasers...and Don't Break the Bottle is no exception.
Frustrating, unnerving but heaps of fun for spectators, Don't Break the Bottle offers a brilliant incentive and reward for solving the puzzle - you literally get to enjoy the fruits of your labour by unlocking a bottle of wine from a timber and rope chamber...
...and if wine's not your fancy, fear not as Don't Break the Bottle will house all manner of palette quenching liquids up to 3.5" in diameter. It all looks simple enough, but wait 'til you try and unlock the secret of the puzzle - before too long you'll need the drink inside!
Do you push the balls through the round hole first, line up the slots and feed the little block through, or simply try and shove the block through the round hole? With growing frustration you'll find that nothing seems to work...and before you know it brute force will have you discovering the origins of this puzzle's name.
Don't Break the Bottle is a mind game that'll surely set the stage for great dinner parties with friends and family. No matter how innocent we all think we are, there's certain fulfilment in watching people struggling, getting desperate, finally giving up and eventually begging for your help...
...and in a second or two, with a deft twist here and a quick push there, you'll have the bottle out and open with your friends dazzled at your new party trick.
Don't Break the Bottle is a sure way to baffle guests before a meal and makes an ideal gift for know-it-alls.
Don't Break the Bottle includes three wooden puzzle pieces and an instruction/solving guide. It is designed to fit wine, herb vinegar, olive oil and pop bottles of varying heights - the maximum bottle diameter is 3.5" and sorry, wine bottle's are not included. When locking up bottles in this puzzle, you will need to adjust the rope length according to the bottle's height, to ensure that the bottle can only be removed by solving the puzzle (or breaking the bottle).Please note: Recommended for people over 8 years of age.
