ball into the neck of the bottle. Please send the solution to the
Cracker Barrel Puzzle before I go crazy ! "
" I received this unique gift from my boss for Christmas and the whole
office was dumbfounded, including myself. I purposely didn't go to
the web site because I would have spilled the beans prematurely.
But now that we are on Christmas vacation I found the solution and
can spend time teasing friends with the puzzle. Thanks again for
such ingenious brain teasers."

I GIVE UP! Congratulations - a first rate puzzle."

" This simple solution you speak of. I hope it does not involve
breaking the bottle. I feel like I have tried everything imaginable.
However, when the solution is sent, I will be so angry at myself. To
send for the solution has been a difficult decision."

This classic wine bottle puzzle has baffled
the world since its introduction in 1995!
The object is to make the wood ball touch
the cork. It may look easy, but the stick
blocks the ball whenever the bottle is
turned upside down. It's an extremely
frustrating brain teaser, but the solution is
surprisingly elegant! Measures 7" tall.
Ages 12 to adult.
