Cast O’Gear from Hanayama – Review


This is the Cast O’Gear
manufactured by Hanayama. This is actually the prize winner from
the first ever annual World Puzzle Design Competition all the way back in
2001 designed by the Dutch phenom himself, Oscar Van Deventer. Uh, so this puzzle here made
up of these two pieces, both made of cast metal with a
antique brass finish. On the box here, we’ve got a little bit different shape
on each side to move this star through and around,
um, along with enough space to twist the
star within each of those gaps as well. The star, really with the only points of
interest being these two corners here, which are shaved off just a little bit, which may have something to
do with the solution. Uh, the movement on this puzzle is
pretty cool. Um, as you enter one, you exit another along with being able
to twist within each of these sides on this box. Your objective is to figure out how
to remove the star from the box and then get it back together.
This is a level seven on the Puzzle Master difficulty rating scale, which runs from five to ten and a level
three on the Hanayama difficulty rating scale,
which runs from one to six.
