    I dont agree with difficulty. With enuf mindless fidgeting you will stumble upon getting it apart. The internal spiral maze was far more difficult than this.

    If you look closely on the inside of the recessed part of each piece, you'll notice that each actually DOES have a different marking, giving you an order to put them in if they get mixed up. One has 3 little dots, one has 2, one has 1, one has nothing and then the Hanayama piece. That is the sequence. I actually noticed it before I managed to get it apart.

    Not gonna lie-- this took me a few hours to do. I got it apart quickly, but I took it all the way apart and mixed them up without really knowing what I was doing. It took forever to put it back together. Now it is so simple... also, it's as if the taper is wearing away some, and the puzzle comes apart and goes together much easier than it did the first few times.

    I have this Cast Spiral by Hanayama, it was a lot of fun, the problem I have with it now, is that it doesn't hold properly like it did first out of the box, Either I was just a tad too rough with it taking it apart an putting it back together, or the pieces warped just enough that now they are just too loose; to the point that they will fall apart at the main connection. The same happens for the mini Hanayama wooden puzzles I have tried, some are twist lock wood puzzles, and I noticed that the pieces were just too loose after putting them back together, and humidity can play a part in warping wood. so... whatevers.

    I like this one for not having hidden mechanics.
    Hidden pins or magnets are also 'puzzle-ish' I guess, but this one doesn't try to trick you. All you need to solve it is in plain sight.

    I separated it without looking at it, so I had to use your video to figure out how to put it together. It really helped to know that there is an order of specific pieces in putting it back together! Great job explaining the process!

  • WashupCyclone
    WashupCyclone 7 месяцев назад

    I bought this puzzle because of your video and it's great! There is actually one other way of taking it apart that I've found. You pull the hanayama piece to the front of the spiral, then slide it back with the piece to its left (the same two pieces you use, except now it's the other one that disconnects instead of the hanayama piece). Cheers! Looking forward to more videos.

    I got this, and I loved just playing with it absentmindedly, then when I wasn't looking "I solved it" it feel apart. Thank you for showing the assembly process, since I didn't see it fall apart I didn't know the twist. Pun intended.

    Is there a way to tell exactly the order of the pieces? I took mine apart, and of course mixed up the pieces, before I saw this video that says 'make sure they are in the correct order', but doesn't say what that is. I did manage to get it back together, but I think the order is slightly wrong, as the reassembled puzzle doesn't open quite as far as it used to, I think. So I disassemble and reassemble in another order, and it still doesn't seem to fan out as much as it did originally. Would have been nice if there was some indicator on each piece as to the order.

  • Aaron Lowe
    Aaron Lowe 10 месяцев назад

    I've seen a different way to solve this puzzle. You spin it then tap it from the top and it falls apart. This is because it is partially held together by gravity. When you spin it the centrifugal force overcomes this gravity meaning that a simple tap will cause it to disassemble. So you spin, let it stop, then tap.

    EDIT: nvm I got it, important to note that the 2 parts that originally stayed level with one another (including the logo piece) are not together before you twist

  • masenkoh
    masenkoh 10 месяцев назад

    I do not think this puzzle deserved 5 star difficulty rating. I looked at it and solved it with my first guess. If one part does not work, it makes obvious to try two, then three, and so on. And because they do not come apart via sliding per say, then next bet would to be to slide and twist. Thats how i solved it.

    Oh man, I was watching some of your other videos and thinking about that thing and how much I miss it. I got one as a gift about ten years ago. Yep, it's been around that long. Mine didn't have the brand marking so I had to look for imperfections like pits and nicks on the metal to identify a "key" piece. The day I got it I managed to solve it in about an hour of fiddling on the way home from work on the train. Was kind of a bad day and that thing turned my day around so hence the good memory! Later on an old boss of mine actually stole it. Anyway, I found a couple of other ways to get some more puzzle time out of it. Mix up the parts after disassembly! Go ahead and roll them like dice. Good times. I also was able to solve it in one hand. I learned to do it it both left and right-handed. Try it. Quite fun! For me it went from being a puzzle to a fun bit of fidget I kept on my desk until that bastard fatman of a boss ripped it off.

    This is a crappy puzzle, there are two movements you can do with it and the second movement solves it, I was watching you move it around and thought it can't be that simple and I was wondering why you weren't moving it in two different directions, because that's the solution... not a criticism of you, I love your channel. This puzzle sucks though.

    • Aaron Lowe
      Aaron Lowe 10 месяцев назад +1

      It always looks easier once you know the solution. The video creator knew the solution so could go straight to it. That does not make the puzzle crappy. Actually there is another way to solve the puzzle in one movement and that solution makes it unique.
