It is Hungarian. I saw this in July, it sold for about $2 USD in an auction I didn't have access to. :shock:

It seems interesting, but it might not be a puzzle. It says "tutorial" on it, maybe a multiplication table tutorial?

EDIT: the subjects on the booklet cover (and on the side of the box) make me wonder if there are questions inside the booklet and the right answers will "unlock" the "puzzle". Just a guess.

See two more pictures below.

I think this is some kind of an intellectual game.
There must be some sort of question cards included, because on one of the picture I saw the following in Hungarian: History, Art, Biology, Geography, ...

It must be similar to the Trivial Pursuit game.

The "puzzle" is just something what you can use to show your process in the game.

Thanks for the replies!

I thought it was a type of maze puzzle as the one i saw was not boxed. The packaging does make it look more like a board game than a puzzle . Thanks for the info :D

"Oktató játék" means 'educational game' in Hungarian. If you can take a picture of the other words farther up on the cylinder I can translate them for you.
