About this Product

Cooksey Maze is a maze concept invented by an Englishman named "Mr. Richard Cooksey" in the 1970's. An evolved metal+plastic version with springs and pins was prototyped by Pentangle, but it was never taken in production. Oskar has been trying to locate Cooksey for quite some time, as the original "Cooksey Cilinder" has been an inspiration for many of Oskar's puzzle designs. This is a modified version of the original Cooksey Cylinder with a much simplified mechanism.

Earn a free Cooksey Maze if you can bring Oskar in contact with the original inventor of this maze concept. We know nothing more than his name, the fact that he is an Englishman, and that he already was an adult in the 1970's. Also the people who operated Pentangle in the 1970's do not have more identifying information.
