There's a whole world of wisdom wrapped up in this Oskar masterpiece. The three pieces can be separated and then joined again in their original form. What's special about this puzzle is that it can be solved three different ways, depending on which of the three pieces is chosen as the middle piece. Solving this puzzle requires an especially subtle kind of working of the pieces, the kind that often leaves the victim struggling in frustration. Keeping in mind its chainlike behaviour and using your feeling to your advantage is the best way to attack this. The key word is "chain".

The Cast Puzzle... Britain in the 19th Century. The nobles and citizens, brimming over with pretentiousness and curiousity is said to have created the boom in puzzles. A great variety of puzzles came to exist duuring this period, speaking for the times. Among those puzzles, we began to attempt to bring back to life the "Casted Metal Puzzle". The material, die cast zinc, is made by melting and pouring a zinc alloy into a metal mold. Upon its completion after grueling effort, the puzzle series was named the "Cast Puzzle" series. This is due to its manufactoring process name, the die cast method.
