Thanks to Wil Strijbos I now know the goal of this puzzle!
The goal is frankly quite simple, however getting there is not =)
Goal: Getting the ball from one eye to the other…and back again.
When I first started to fiddle around with this puzzle, the ball was in it’s left socket, and getting it to the right was no problem. The tricky part is getting it back to the left one. There are basically two obstacles to overcome to get the ball to the left eye, and I’m still stuck at the last one. I don’t know if I’m to tired or what, but I might need some assistance on the last hurdle.
This Roger puzzle has me really puzzled!
I have no idea what the goal is here… You have this aluminum block which makes out a face (gesicht), and several square holes on it’s sides. There is one metal ball inside, and you have a “stick” ? with rounded edges (one bigger then the other). It seems like the goal of this would be to get the ball out of one of the eyes. All other holes are too small to get the ball out.
There are paths within which directly connects to the holes, and the only obstruction is a couple of “compressed” pieces if foam. (It’s really hard to explain but I will put up more pictures soon) You can poke the ball past each piece of foam with some force. (There is no damage to the puzzle, foam nor ball by doing this). So if the goal is to get the ball out through the eye it’s easy as pie!?
And why does the sticks ends has different sizes? There got to be more to this puzzle then meets the eye!
If you can confirm or dismiss my theory on the goal on this puzzle please contact me and let me know.
Here are 3 pictures of the foam, excuses the poor color balance.

A list of my puzzles in the order I get them.
I try to take my own pictures of the puzzles I collect, and they may be used freely for all uses.
(though it would be nice of you to drop me an e-mail and letting me know).
I started this blog Nov 8 – 2009 so the post date before that, is the date I ordered those puzzles.
One puzzle = One post
I will add puzzles here even if I haven’t solved them yet. So that means that I will go back and add / edit more information of the individual puzzles as I work on them.
This will help keeping permalinks to a particular puzzle valid and up to date at all times.
With the exception for minor changes, I will notify that I have edited a particular puzzle with a post.
Why so brief reviews?
Puzzles I’m currently waiting for
