Artifact Puzzles - Small Four-color-map Wooden Jigsaw Puzzle

$ 40.00


This wooden puzzle has no picture - the pieces themselves are the puzzle. An added twist: there are only four different colors of pieces, and no two adjacent pieces are the same color (mathematically speaking, it illustrates the Four Color Map Theorem (see wikipedia for details)). This abstract puzzle style is inspired by a design and cut-style of master-handcutter John Stokes III.  The pieces were designed by Seattle artist Tara Flannery. We expect this puzzle to take 1-4 hours for the average puzzling adult. All our puzzles are made of 1/4" wood and laser-cut in the USA. Packaged in a small box with a magnetic clasp.

Review: What a great puzzle. A lot of twists and turns. Please make more puzzles like this. Once I figured out the pattern of how it worked, it took me under a hour to complete. Happy customer. Plus brought it on sale. I scored big.

Review: This puzzle is just brilliant. High-end coffee shops should put one on every table. It would cause a spike in orders of decaf.

Review: One of my absolute favorite Artifact puzzles. The cutting is gorgeously tricky; it looks as if it will be easy to match pieces--after all, how many spirals can there be in such a small puzzle? How many arrows? But in fact there are just enough to make it a real challenge, even at such a small size. The lack of a defined edge also helps increase the difficulty--there are many connectors that actually connect to nothing. There is no image, though one can get some guidance from the fact that no two pieces of the same color touch. I would do dozens of these puzzles and would love one at a larger size.
