A pirate chest recently washed ashore containing a never-before-seen hand carved puzzle. The carvings on the chest indicate that the puzzle is a 3D maze map through the caves on Dragon Fang's island where the vast treasure from the pirate ship Black Lion is hidden. You open the chest only to find that the main body of the maze looks eaten away to the "Bare Bones." Luckily, there is a clear case in the chest as well, and a small brightly colored ball that will help guide you. The ball fits into the maze at the round mouth of the cave maze in the corner of the cube. The maze then slides into the clear case; it is a perfect fit. You shove the sturdy case with its precious map into your pocket. The question is, can you solve the mystery of this maze and find the treasure? The carvings on the chest show that your goal is shown as another round ring with the remains of an "X" along its border.

To get there, roll the ball along the bones of the maze to try to reach the treasure. Your ball can travel up, down, fore and aft, port (left) and starboard (right) to travel through the maze. The clear walls allow you to easily see exactly where you are in the maze, and which directions can be tried next, but getting there is harder than it looks. Argggh, there have been plenty of "Bones" cleverly placed along the tunnels to trip up any unwary pirates and keep them from reaching the treasure. These can lead you astray or plunge you into a deep pit.

The "X Marks the Spot" where your treasure is found. If you reach the treasure you are not done yet matey! You have to return safely back to the mouth of the cave. Be wary though, there are new perils on the way back, and many pirates have never found their way back out. The true brave of heart can enter again to see if they can find the treasure again, this time, faster!

Good Luck Maties!

The 3D maze fits snuggly inside the 2 inch by 2 inch by 2 inch clear plastic cube. The clear cube also serves as a display quality case for this clever pirate work of art. The clear case is very sturdy, so you can carry this maze puzzle around in your pocket or your bag. When not being played, this unique new type of maze can be displayed as a fascinating work of art. Set it on your desk or shelf, everyone will be curious to know what it is and want to give it a try.

This new maze design uses thicker rods for the maze. They are also rounded off so the maze structure looks like a skeletal matrix of linked up bones.
