The Lotus Box Puzzle

A really beautiful and surprising puzzlebox!

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:

how to do solve puzzles in less than a minute:
1. put it on the floor
2. step on it
3. if step 2 didn't work, just hit it, crush it, or find another way to break it.

hate puzzles like that. dont think that "puzzle" even a correct word here, looks more like a code lock - you can solve it only if you know the solution or somehow randomly.

Author DRS_ au ( ago)
This is not so much of a puzzle as it's more like a lock. Anything with innards that are not visible with a naked eye can only be a lock. Balls, needles and other types of blocking instruments inside the item do not make this a puzzle. Its a lock.

The lotus flower blooms twice, hence the second part of the puzzel

Hi matey, where would I be able to purchase this puzzle box?

This hurts my brain.

Another way of solving it is being like Penny from BBT and throwing the puzzle box down to the ground.

That's some coin purse, too bad it only holds 2 coins

I love the journey of this puzzle.

This scratches both the 'puzzle' itch as well as the 'beautifully machined metal' itch. It makes me wish that ClickSpring would try making puzzles on his channel. The difficulty of this puzzle is directly related with the quality of the craftsmanship, as some of the hidden compartments are hidden by careful polishing!

I'm glad that you shared this. There is no way I would have seen it elsewhere.

Here's the proper way of explaining this puzzle: find out why it's called the lotus ring.

starting off saying this puzzles primary goal is to take the nail out of the ring and describing the other parts as additions or extra just doesn't work.

it's the lotus box. keyword: box.

Author Yuan Chen ( ago)
Well, that's not lotus, that's chrysanthemum. Because that is a Chinese 0.5 Yuan. Anyway, good video and good puzzle box.

Author deshtom ( ago)
How exactly does the spin move actually do something to solve the puzzle? Like, what is the mechanism that the spin move affects in order to unlock it?

Author Darrick White ( ago)
William Strijbos is the creator of this puzzle box. Its currently out of stock in most places, but some of his other puzzles aren't, and worth taking a try to solve.

Almost looks like a dugout

after the spoiler break

Author Slushie Fox ( ago)
where can I but one?

Author Kevin Vu ( ago)
if the middle area was transparent...this puzzle would feel much better.

unable to see the mechanics of the box and expecting you to spin It?

I can see why not many of these were made. the goal of the puzzle is hidden away, the methods are obscure and nothing feels "satisfying".

Is there any way to buy a Lotus box ?

Author Mamacrow Helps ( ago)
These kind of puzzles are lame tbh, I like puzzles with definitive rules at the start; and you just have to think it properly through to correctly solve it. Like the Tower of Hanoi - very simple to understand the rules of the puzzle (no having to spin things or see what can come loose, or not being able to see what's going in a box) Just my opinion though, maybe some people love these kind of things.

Does anybody know whether the embossed letters on the coin taken out at 4:10 means anything? Does it mean anything that is a clue that the puzzle hasn't been finished yet?
