About Tavern Puzzles
Tavern Puzzles® evolved from reproductions of hand-forged artefacts that Dennis Sucilsky came across while researching architectural hardware. As a blacksmith, Dennis was able to use his knowledge of iron-working and tool making for production of metal puzzles.
The earliest Tavern Puzzles® are based on designs centuries old. New styles are added on a regular basis; some of these are original designs, others are new versions of classics.
All designs are made from steel; some incorporate wooden beads as well. Dimensions vary, depending on style, ranging from 8" to 14" long, and 4" to 6" wide. Most designs weigh within a few ounces of one pound. Each puzzle is packaged in a drawstring cloth bag and comes with a descriptive sheet that shows the object of the puzzle.
The purpose of any puzzle is to provide a challenge, entertainment, and fun. The Tavern Puzzle Collection does all three, on several different levels.
