Brass Cannon Premium Puzzle

(4 customer reviews)


SKU: 1465589358 Category:

Just like a real cannon, the goal of this puzzle is to get the cannonball out of the barrel. You can hear the ball rattling around inside and you can even see it if you look carefully but the opening of the barrel is just slightly too small for the ball to escape…

There’s no simple, single move—no straightforward solution. This is a type of puzzle known as “sequential discovery” which means you’ll need to find the steps, and perhaps, discover hidden tools, to complete the challenge. The Brass Cannon Puzzle is based on a wooden version called “Cannon and Ball” which was described in Professor Hoffmann’s book Puzzles Old and New in 1893.

This version is made from solid turned brass and cast alloy. It measures about 2.5” x 1.25” x 1.25”. Give it a shot! We think it’s a great introduction to one of our favorite genres of mechanical puzzles.

    For a deck of cards, you need one of each of the 52 cards, it’s kind of the minimum of what is required of a deck of cards. I got sent two sets of Heart face cards and no Diamond face cards. I messaged to see if I could get the three missing diamond cards I’m short and I haven’t gotten a response after a week. I love the artwork but this is actually unplayable.

    Good quality looks nice on the shelf. Fun intro to sequential puzzles.

    Was really nice. Only complaints would be it showed with a rubber band which I guess was to hold the cannon to the base, but it had melted and was gummy and sticky all over the cannon so I had to wipe it off. Thankfully it all seemed to come off okay but pretty unnecessary to have the rubber band at all especially if it makes the product worse. Also, it was way too easy to solve. ***Spoilers for how to solve*** the reverse threading comes undone way too easily, so when you try to tighten the original piece, the reverse threading starts right away and shows the big reveal way too soon. Pretty okay, but I think I’d go with a different seller to look for a bit nicer quality.

    Coolest puzzle I’ve ever seen! Can’t wait for my brother in law to open it for Christmas!
