The SwissCheese Puzzle

William Waite designed this puzzle to confound the solver from every angle.  The mouse comes in a hole at upper left, but can you rearrange the four pieces of cheese so that the mouse can fit down in the square with the cheese?

Filled with red herrings to lead you astray, this puzzle consistently resists efforts even to fit the 4 pieces of cheese in the square at all.  Please help the mouse to get to his preferred spot: nestled in the Swiss cheese.

This puzzle does NOT come with the solution on the back!

  • red alder and/or walnut wood
  • 5 pieces
  • 4" x 4.5" (10 x 12cm)
