Gordian's Knot Game


An ancient mystery reinvented for the most challenging and mind-bending of modern day fun! Gordian's Knot from ThinkFun is based on the Gordian knot tied by Midas, which the great Oracles proclaimed that the person that solved the puzzle would rule the world. Well, you know what happened to Alexander the Great 400 years later! Not that modern players will rule kingdoms, but this game still offers exciting challenge to the most seasoned of brain teaser players. This colorful knot features just 6 interlocking pieces, but it takes a whopping 69 different moves to take the knot apart. By sliding the six pieces past each other, the knot will come apart - but beware! Some pieces will easily move throughout the process, but that doesn't make them the right move. Best of all, the game comes with a 40-page step-by-step solution book in case players get stumped, but it also helps them put the knot back together once this puzzle is solved! For 1 player.

      My 5th grade grandson found this toy to have just enough challenge to keep him hooked on it!!! Enhances finger/hand coordination and mental stimulation and is visually appealing.
