As if M.C. Escher's sketches weren't complex enough, now you can try to piece them together with this fiendishly complex, modern take on a best-selling cube puzzle.

Players can place the mirrored boxes in the frame and watch as they change patterns according to which boxes are directly next to them. Five different sketches can be created, but choose carefully: winning is much more challenging than you think! Made in China.

Escher's artistry translated into a 3-D puzzle proved an irresistible element of this year's Uncommon Goods Father's Day goodie box of gifts for my Dad. He enjoys puzzles like this to stay sharp and on top of his game. Not only is this a challenging, versatile puzzle with multiple solutions, it is visually breathtaking with its mirrored finish. This is yet another Uncommon Goods home run for anyone who is up for a challenge, appreciates beauty, and is looking for a non-electronic means if staying entertained. It was a hit with my Dad, and you'll enjoy it too.

Was bought for 8 year old as description says for ages "7 to 99". Would not suggest purchaing for anyone under teenage years, too difficult & frustrating for youngsters. My daughter-in-law was only one that could solve this puzzle.

            Puzzle was bigger than I had expected. It looks pretty cool. My husband and I have tried it and keep coming close to solving only to find out that we are off by one cube, but my 17-yr old son can do it

                      This was for my 23-year-old son who enjoys a good challenge and also displays all his knickknacks. I'm not sure if he's had time yet to mess with it very much (lots of travel and play with niece and nephew), but I think he's definitely intrigued.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      It arrived in perfect condition, along with the other 3 things I ordered, and right on time so I have no complaints. I think they provided superior service!

                        My husband is very analytical and can usually solve puzzles rapidly. The mirrors make this a little tricky. I have to admit I quite enjoyed watching him scratch his head for almost a week before getting it worked out.

                        Delivering was prompt and well-packaged for Christmas in a nice colorful ribbon and attractive gift card.
