"This is a genuine puzzle. We can see all the mechanism, and it’s familiar to play. But, we lost the way soon before we knows. Your goal is to put off the plates. You can move the each plate. But, they are controlled by the maze, and the plates obstruct each other. It was made by Kagen Schaefer with much help from his sister Robin Schaefer. If you could see the inside mechanism of the Rune Box it would look a lot like the Maze Burr. The mazes on each side all show you the way inside. Sometimes it is only a few moves, sometimes it is more than a hundred moves. When you take apart the Maze Burr, then you can rebuild it differently." -Karakuri Creation Group
