The Lotus Box Puzzle

A really beautiful and surprising puzzlebox!

Please subscribe if you like the video!

Finding a copy of "The Lotus Box" will be difficult, as not many were made. Your best bet is to find a collector who has one they're willing to part with, or contact a specialty puzzle shop. I bought mine at Eureka Puzzles in Brookline, MA.


I'm a Top-10 finisher in the US Puzzle Championship and just released a logic puzzle game on Steam! The game is called RYB:

Intro song: Tekvision - Mycoplasma

0:11 "They say the goal of this puzzle is to remove the center ring from the nail that goes through it."
2:26 "And now we can take off the ring."
2:40 "But we still have the rest of the puzzle." <--- No you don't! You removed the ring, which was the goal. You won!!!! Go home.
