Tavern Puzzles

New for 2013
The latest Tavern Puzzle for 2013: Genuine Article
Tavern Puzzles are reproductions of a type of puzzle traditionally forged by blacksmiths to amuse their friends at country taverns and inns. Keeping with tradition, a museum-trained blacksmith has reproduced some of these antique designs as well as his own original designs. All the puzzles are handcrafted and individually assembled. Each puzzle is mechanical in nature; removal of the object piece does not rely on force or trickery.

By Difficulty:
The Tavern Puzzle Collection is divided into 8 difficulty groups. Group 1 is the simplest. The groups become progressively more difficult, ending with the most complex, Group 8.

Group 1 - Reproductions of antique designs, with only a few steps. Our first and most familiar designs.
Group 2 - Original designs. Basic, with only a few steps. Fun and easy to learn.
Group 3 - More complex, with multi-step solutions. Straightforward, making them easy to teach and share.
Group 4 - This group is also multi-step, but the moves are more interactive. Fun to demonstrate if you know how.
Group 5 - Multi-step sequences with close tolerances. More perseverance than luck is needed.
Group 6 - Be wary of false steps in the layered solutions. For the true collector.
Group 7 - Requires a lot of concentration to master the large number of moves, and to handle the flexible chain.
Group 8 - Our two most difficult puzzles, plus a reproduction of the oldest known puzzle in the world.
