We originally discontinued production of the Ball & Ring puzzle in 1992. Since then, we continue to receive requests for its solution. Even those who have succeeded in solving it still love to comment on it, either praising or cursing it!

Over the years we have tried redesigning Ball & Ring, but the original design, taken from the pages of "Creative Puzzles of the World" (Van Delft & Botermans) remains the most elegant and challenging form of the puzzle we have found.

Due to its popularity, Ball & Ring is available again
