|This Stickman Domino Puzzle Box (No. 16) is handcrafted by artist Robert Yarger from quality walnut and Monticello. The dominoes inside were produced by John Devost from white holly. To make things a bit more challenging, a few odd shaped tiles made from Paduk are also inserted.
The solution to opening this unique puzzle can only be achieved by tilting, poking, and tapping the dominoes into different positions through the exterior of the box. This is a very challenging puzzle to solve, and even I (the designing artist) have found myself accidentally locked out of my own box for hours at a time. You can easily see what needs to be done through the sides, but formulating a successful multi-step plan of attack is the ultimate challenge, as each move alters the overall puzzle configuration.
Once solved, the box will open up and the complete set working of dominoes can be removed and played with. The dominoes can be reinserted back in hundreds of different combinations, and each variation alters the complexity of the solution the next time the puzzle is solved.
The box measures 6â€ x 6â€ x 2â€ and comes with its own 6-page illustrated instruction booklet. This is a limited edition piece, and only 25 of these boxes will ever be made.
