Hi Non-Twisty Puzzles fans,

Ring World is a maze ball. The yellow ball turns around within the black ring. When the ball and the ring are correctly aligned, then the ring+ball together can be split in half, and the treasure inside the ball can be removed.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

That is a very cool maze with extras! Will it come to Voorburg?

I'm amazed that this is actually a maze at all - the cuts in the sphere look very regular and symmetrical. How many "moves" are required to solve it?

Love the reference to Larry Niven's RingWorld Saga as those are some of my favorite novels. Back on subject, this puzzle looks really intriguing and I 'm also interested in the level of difficulty as it looks fairly straight forward. Also, how big the the cavity in the center?

Twenty moves or so. The maze is quite confusing to solve, but doable.

40 mm diameter. Enough to store an engagement ring :-)
