The Boston Subway was designed by Oskar van Deventer and was Dave Rossetti's IPP26 Exchange gift in 2006. This pocket-sized maze was crafted from five layers of chromatic acrylic, making it tricky to see where and how the layers interact. The original release, as crafted by George Miller, included a 3D printed wand with an embedded magnet to help guide the ball through the maze. Our version also includes the wand, but conceals it a bit better.
The goal of Boston Subway is to navigate the trapped sphere magnet from the start of the maze to the finish and back again. While there are several routes, the shortest will require you to "transfer" more than a dozen times.
packaged great, fast shipping. puzzle was a blast to do
Gorgeous little puzzle; it took me an embarrassingly long time to find the wand. Once I was able to get started though, the layers weren't quite as confusing as I thought and it was a relatively simple maze. Great re-design of this puzzle, I can see why it originally made a nice IPP exchange gift.
It’s hard to make a sturdy puzzle that is pocket sized and good for on the go and CD hits it with this one. An added puzzling moment to find the wand and patience and precision to get you through the solve. Haven’t started as I’m waiting for a trip this weekend but very happy I got it.
