An elusive puzzle dating back to the times of the original puzzle craze.
Together with its cousin (the Chi Gung Massage Ball) this is one of the rarest puzzles in existence. Uwe Meffert produced a batch of unknown size (around 10000) back in the 80's but these were produced with black bodies. There were only 3 produced with white plastic. The images for this entry were made with the sample from Mefferts personal collection.
The puzzle itself looks a bit like the Babylon tower with its four rotatable layers. Compared with the Babylon Tower this puzzle does not use a moving hole. Instead the marbles can be moved in complete sequences with the help of the top and bottom domes, which can be rotated too. The rotating layers are the main difference to the Chi Gung Ball.
