    Really enjoyed the little magic bit in the start! The "misdirection" card was a nice touch

      ..he didn’t put it back in the deck
      ..he slipped it thru and to his left palm
      ..then dropped it under the empty box rt as he flipped the box over

    I think it may have been easier to work backwards on this one. Start from the tower and find a way down.

    • grlmgor

      You should learn how the old school *1 to 15 slide puzzle* works so you know how to shift the pieces around.

    It's so incredible how much time and effort goes in to creating all these magnificent puzzles. As hard as it may be to crack one, imagine what the creators go through while coming up with ideas of how to get it started and finished. Truly remarkable and I appreciate/applaud all parties!!
    Great job/video as always, Chris👍🙏

  • Cache the Line
    Cache the Line Před 27 dny +13

    Ok that's an insane twist on the shift puzzle concept. There's got to be multiple possible solutions, but getting to one requires thinking in the 3rd dimension as well. And, it's not just about solving for one piece, it's about create a valid route from A to B.

  • AfroBoriLaFemme
    AfroBoriLaFemme Před 27 dny +1

    This is a classic CR vid right here.
    Cinematic opening, a taste of some card magic with b-roll of some beautiful magical decor, then a beautiful and interesting puzzle.
    Hubby and I had a bit of whisky and enjoyed the good vibes.

    I LOVE this concept of a puzzle with many solutions. Replay factor/ less stress factor, make it so much more enjoyable. Does anyone have any other ones like this they can think ok?
    Thanks in advance! Great video
    Have a great day everyone :)

    I would have bought it if it was 10 times cheaper :/

    Hey, Chris, don't you think that stairs -> entrance move may be illegal? I think it is reasonable, because it must be some difference between entrances and flat platforms besides appearance. The only possible stair -> entrance move could be the last one, if you shift that last entrance sideways by 1/4 of width (towards one empty cell you have) to align the entrance and stairs properly.

    • Ruben Davila
      Ruben Davila Před 23 dny

      Not illegal. You can clearly see in the 1st image displayed on the rule page from his phone that there is a green arrow pointing from stairs into the highest tower.

    • Harrison Donini
      Harrison Donini Před 26 dny

      I agree! there was a flat medium block that was supposed to be the landing instead of the door way. I think it was on the bottom left when he finished!

  • Peter Heinisch
    Peter Heinisch Před 27 dny

    The palm and drop was clean! I had to rematch the misdirection sequence to figure it out. Well done, your cardistry is always so clean!
    Edit: I still can't figure out the 2nd trick, I think it's magic

  • Darren New

    I've been looking for something around which I could design a 3D printed puzzle. This looks like a great aesthetic to start with. A few pins, a few magnets, a few slots...

  • Yourik Dean
    Yourik Dean Před 27 dny +1

    Sooo simple! The true genius about this puzzle is in the instructions.. they say that you have to find your way UP to the top but, with any kind of puzzle like this (including mazes) the answer is to work your way backwards! In this case, from the top down!

  • Monique Halgat
    Monique Halgat Před 27 dny +4

    Ooh, this reminds me of that mobile game Monument Valley. Very interesting!

  • dopeymark
    dopeymark Před 27 dny

    Wow I was getting frustrated watching that solve. It hit me very early on that the solution would involve going from one tower to the tallest tower with a set of stairs in between. I could see that would be a possible solution in the way the pieces were made.

  • Merry May

  • Jacob Trindade
    Jacob Trindade Před 27 dny +1

    I have been doing magic for five years and was still fooled at first in the second misderection trick from the intro! Crazzy how being so used to some sleigths actually makes it more likely for you to fall for that kind of stuff!

    • Tahgtahv
      Tahgtahv Před 24 dny

      I was watching the card trick in slow motion (.25x) and am still not entirely sure how the first one was done. I'm not entirely sure that Jack was full height, but think it was short enough to hide behind the width of the box (after being dropped there from a palm). The camera cut to the books at the end without him picking up the card was suspicious to me. I do have a fairly good idea how the second one was done though.

  • ZombyGamerKat Kat

  • Adam Chalmers
    Adam Chalmers Před 27 dny +2

    Ok. I'm gonna buy one of these for sure! (oh, and not to doubt your solving prowess, but does that last staircase line up with the opening in that tower? Kinda looked blocked to me in the vid). Great content! Cheers!

    • grlmgor
      grlmgor Před 27 dny

      I though the same. It easily fix by moving the final tower pieces behind the last staircase.

  • Jason Brabon
    Jason Brabon Před 27 dny

    Cool puzzle. I wish it only had one solution. But for replay ability it’s cool that it has multiple.

  • Bob Motster
    Bob Motster Před 25 dny +1

    I would like to think that Chris reached the top of the tallest spire at exactly 36:37.38

  • Dead Inbox
    Dead Inbox Před 27 dny +1

    This puzzle has a remarkable visual similarity to the board game Cathedral, which is a set of carved wooden buildings on a board. How cool to see what looks like a "puzzlefied" version of a board game I've played many times!

  • BurnleyNuts

    It's like MC Echer art. Beautiful puzzle.

  • Andrea Franchini
    Andrea Franchini Před 26 dny +5

    Hi Chris, i think that stair to tower move is illegal without one platform in between: it will be a sideways step. The half platform pieces should be Just fine.
    I think that a top down logic is more efficient… anyways amazing content as always 👍

  • Eddie Harkin
    Eddie Harkin Před 27 dny

  • Kiling Kiling - Tiny Bell

    This reminds me of a slide puzzle I played a lot when I was a kid with a picture of the Incredible Hulk and I played it over and over more than I did with a Rubix cube. That one is a cleverly thought of slide puzzle in 3D and not just the traditional 2D image.

    Took me 20 play backs in slow motion to figure out that card trick! Well done 👍

  • Henry West
    Henry West Před 27 dny

    I think a top-down approach might make it a bit easier to find a path. Or to make it harder, give it a specific place on the frame that the path has to connect to.

  • Donny Does That
    Donny Does That Před 27 dny +2

    Hey Chris, I think when you were having issues with the "feet" not allowing certain moves, it's because when you initially put the pieces in, some weren't oriented the right way. In a slide puzzle like this, all the "interconnect" pieces should be the same, so, if the foot of the first was away and to the left, they ALL should be that way, then they'll never interfere like that.

    • grlmgor
      grlmgor Před 27 dny +2

      @Chris Ramsay I think Donny Does That is correct and you just inserted them wrong.

    • grlmgor
      grlmgor Před 27 dny +2

      @Donny Does That Yeah I was think of that too by doing the old school 1 to 15 slide puzzle.
      Your correct in that if every pieces only has a top and left tab then they can slide into any position.

    • Donny Does That
      Donny Does That Před 27 dny +2

      You sure, cause I was thinking of those cheap plastic ones. The frame has a grove on the top and left edges, and a tab along the right and bottom, the pieces are all opposite. That way, every touching edge is a tab pointing up or left, into a slot pointing down or right, and every piece can always slide into an empty space, never being blocked by those tabs.

    • Chris Ramsay

    "Precise cutting you cannot find anywhere else."
    Also: Having immensely hard time moving the pieces because they get hung on the base plate and corners of other pieces.

  • BurnleyNuts
    BurnleyNuts Před 27 dny

    I'd have thought working from the top tallest piece and working the way down might be better.

  • 66ThankYou99

    There is somewhat an Android version of this game which I very much enjoyed which we need to move the adventurer to the exit set furthest away. The moving tiles have many different rules, whereas the tile that the adventurer is on will not move. Some tiles will release spikes if triggered by a move... there are stairs to climb... some tiles can rotate... some tiles can never move into specifically marked squares... some tiles require a key to pass through a door... and much more.

  • Joey Sisk
    Joey Sisk Před 27 dny

    A trick I use for these bigger slide block puzzles is to build the top and left sides out first, then the next rows in until I’m at the bottom right corner. Of course any 2 connected sides will work, but it allows you to have pieces in place which can be left while you work on the rest of it.

  • Nadia Spigner
    Nadia Spigner Před 27 dny

    Loved the puzzle but it’s a sham that the pieces kept getting stuck, definitely a design flaw. It would be a smoother experience if they improved that! Still a good solve!

    @Chris Ramsay:
    I wonder (given the 6*6 puzzle grid)...
    1)__ could the longest possible solution's path be 35 blocks?
    (...& where would the empty space end up?)
    2)__ a CLOSED LOOP cannot be made with an odd number of blocks, but can the lowest stair be connected to a CLOSED LOOP path that's 34 blocks long?
    3)__ what's the shortest possible solution's path?

    For some stupid reason, when he picked up the coffee, I thought he was going to pour it all over the puzzle for some reason. And that didn't feel like madness, it felt like it was going to be some clever ploy towards solving the puzzle.

    You have to use the drop down and circle around method .You barrow a part that does not fit. To creat a opening for a part that does work..
    The foot lock was a sneak move by the creator .He did that to trick us 1-14 game players .
    Use a bigger circle move .
    Start from the top and with your way down .

    Have you considered more collaborations for puzzles for 1ST? I think a whole big series of them that extend beyond using your logo in a neat way and go into puzzles like the ones on your channel but with your flair would sell like hot cakes with you backing them (as well as collaborating on them obviously)!

    • Axel Robbins
      Axel Robbins Před 27 dny

      You might even want to have a couple (just a couple) really expensive puzzles too on 1ST if you like the idea 🤔. That will make sense to the market even if they sit for a while. They would be a draw to the store...

    • Axel Robbins
      Axel Robbins Před 27 dny

      If you think about it, you already have one the strongest brands in the world associated with puzzles 🤷. And everyone that watches repeatedly is interested in them. I really think you'll clean house and sell loads and loads at a price point under $30.00. And I actually think it would increase the sales of your other merch too. If people have the puzzles at home, they are going to want to represent the brand as they show them off to their friends and family and incorporate solving them and playing with them in their daily lives.
