Multiball is a tricky new puzzle box with a deceptive solution. Four stainless bearings are trapped behind a small window, and must be dealt with to open the box. Panels slide, pins drop, and the box remains stubbornly closed. There is one and only one way to open this box...can you figure it out? The solution will not be what you think!
Construction of this puzzle is excellent, with sturdy shouldered joinery and a precise fit. As with all puzzle boxes, Multiball should be protected against abrupt changes in humidity and temperature, and should be stored in a climate controlled environment.

I had opened Multiball and then loaned it to a friend when I read this had a much more elegant solution. I have now got it back and thought about my solution more carefully and then solved it in what I hope is the intended solution. A very clever mechanism!
It looks and feels like it was made by someone who was excited to know that someone would soon hold it, turn it this way and that, look at it upside down, and then place it back at the shell, shaking his or her head, admiring the excellent craftsmanship and perfect wood, different species complementing one another, as it is placed carefully back on its shelf to confuse (and eventually, hopefully, delight) another day.
