Martin’s Menace Puzzle – Stewart Coffin Design #217 size small


How can a 4 piece puzzle be so difficult??.  All you have to do is insert them into the frame…    It is a Stewart Coffin design (#217) originally called “Four Fit” but renamed by Stewart after Martin Gardner’s week long efforts to solve it were in vain.  Martin Gardner (1914-2010) is considered the Father of Recreational Math with perhaps the greatest puzzle mind of the 20th century.  Martin called it “The finest dissection puzzle of all time”. 

The ¼” thick pieces are precision laser cut and set unsolved into a floorboard base.  The base measures 5.8” x 3.8”

Made in USA by Creative Crafthouse under license from Stewart Coffin.  We also have available a larger, somwhat fancier version of this puzzle that comes with base and lid.

Note: This is our only puzzle where a solution is not provided, but can be obtained upon request at time of or after purchase.
