Your mission, for surely you must accept it, is to help him find his smile…
Ziggy starts out looking more than a little lopsided – with a couple of bolts for eyes not exactly well-matched… and a confused looking half-grin. He appears to be machined from aluminium with a healthy gold coat of anodising, a handsome logo on the base and a wonderfully creative use of the dovetail on the side to provide the “Z” in Ziggy – nice touch!
There’s probably an obvious place to start fiddling and that leads to the discovery of a really handy tool which in turn provides more progress…..and then you may well find yourself up against a bit of a brick wall… with nary a smile in sight.
Time to think (c) :-)
The next bit is rather clever and something not seen in many puzzles – it will reward careful observation and a little thinking outside the box, and once you’ve got that bit cracked, you’re rewarded with a wonderfully happy Ziggy.
An excellent little puzzle guaranteed to make puzzlers smile, first at the major “A-ha!!” moment, and then at the sight that greets you at the end of the solve.
A(nother) excellent collaboration from Radek!
It is rumored that milling this puzzle usually produces a lot of stardust...ReplyDelete
