PAT-050 £14


Special Edition. Only a handful of these were made comprising MOON ROCK and NINE HOLES OF GOLF. Original 1996 Icosohedral design by Oskar van Deventer inspired J.Dalgety to design these two puzzles. Moon Rock was his 2004 IPP Exchange in which the "ball" must be matched to one of the two holes to escape the cage. NINE HOLES of golf requires you to find which hole the ball can NOT fit through. This latter design was particularly good but proved too expensive to use as an exchange puzzle. All made by George Miller - The Ball 3D printed, the golf-course and cage laser cut acrylic.

Cage, Golf Course, and one Ball included
