and owner of more than 30,000 puzzles,
described Jacob's Revenge as, "one of
the best dexterity puzzles in decades."
This classic wine bottle puzzle has
baffled the world since 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.

Cracker Barrel Puzzle before I go crazy ! "

Thanks again for such ingenious brain teasers."

" 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."
