Recently, a good friend of mine who lives in Canada, told me about two interesting puzzles. They belong to some maze series puzzles which is called "Monstrous Maze". He also told me that there were only two types, one is called "Crazy Curves"and the other is called "Straight and Narrow", and they were both made by Tomy Japan.

The reason I am posting this, is because I have seen many different types of mazes, some very spectacular, some 3D etc. But the Monstrous Mazes definitely are the best when it comes to 2D. The detail is fine, simply excellent. And moving the three tiny marbles from one (black and round) pool to the other pool, is not an easy challenge. It does not require you to know anything mathematical, but it will surely require full concentration, plus some 2D geometrical feeling.

You got to do some real thinking before you move the marbles, otherwise you might confuse yourself LOL
And even if you think that you know the path, there is always the "dreadful" dexterity part which might ruin your theoretical plans! ;)




Click on each of the photos to zoom in and view them in more detail.


Definitely recommended for people with presbyopia for long flights that have plenty of turbulence!!!

:P

That's why there's a plastic top on it, so you can't cheat :P
Also have you solved either of them? And how long did it take?

I have received both of them recently, and was so busy I haven't even found time to try any of my new puzzles! (including the ones from the IPP)

I got them from ebay, they don't seem to appear often so they must be rare. The figurine is small, here is a photo of it beside some rubik's cubes.
