Tavern Puzzles - Extra Large Metal Puzzles
Do not get these confused with simple nail puzzles!
Tavern Puzzles® are reproductions of a type of puzzle traditionally forged by blacksmiths to amuse their friends at country taverns and inns. All the puzzles are handcrafted and individually assembled. Each puzzle is mechanical in nature; removal of the object piece does not rely on force or trickery. Each puzzle requires several steps to solve and the more difficult ones can provide hours of frustration and enjoyment.
All designs are made from steel; some incorporate wooden beads as well.
Dimensions vary, depending on style, ranging from 8" to 14" long, and 4" to 6"
wide. Most designs weigh within a few ounces of one pound. Each
puzzle is packaged in a drawstring cloth bag and comes with a descriptive sheet
that shows the object of the puzzle.
