Mouse and Swiss Cheese Puzzle

(5 customer reviews)

$32.00 including sales tax


This puzzle is designed 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 tray 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 get to his preferred spot: nestled in the Swiss cheese.

Based on a 6-piece puzzle by Vladimir Krasnoukhov and with roots going back to puzzles from over a century ago, this puzzle might be considered the culmination of a long line of previous puzzles.

This puzzle has the storage position engraved on the back, but does NOT come with the solution on the back!
