Zig Zag Knot Puzzle
You won’t be able to cut this knot unlike cutting the Gordian Knot, but you might be tempted to take a hammer and smash it into smithereens. We’re talking about the Zig Zag Knot Puzzle that requires one 37-move sequence to unlock the knot – which means you won’t be able to find a different method unlike other puzzle games that has more than one way to arrive at a particular solution. Perfect for one to hone their pattern recognition, abstract thinking and problem solving skills. At $9.99 a pop, it might be the perfect tool if you want to break the ice among your new friends and colleagues, as it helps the quieter ones focus on something else apart from just trying to think of a particular topic to talk about. Needless to say, untangling this knot is a solo activity, making it perfect for the more reserved reaers out there. Nice to know that each purchase comes with the full 37-move sequence solution as well as full instructions to put it back together (which is actually a reverse of the solution, but you knew that already, didn’t you?).
