Gear Planet was suggested by Ferdinand Lammertink. Ferdinand is best know as the inventor of several Thinkfun
puzzles, including Backspin
and recently Perilous Pipes
by Popular Playthings
Gear Planet has 11 tiles. There is a gearing&sliding mechanism for scrambling the tiles. The object is to get them all back in order. Experts may recognize some similarity between the gearing of four tiles, and the up-and-down mechanism of Port-to-Port.
