WOW5 coaster is a puzzle assembly of five rings. The object is to scramble the puzzle and then solve it. It is similar to a puzzle ring, but then flat. The weave pattern is identical to that of Weave Five
, of which Bram Cohen designed the weave pattern. The wrapping-around concept is similar to Carl Hoff's award winning Wrap Around Weave Five
, aka WOW5. Finally, the idea to turn a puzzle ring into a coaster comes from Serhiy Grabarchuk's Cast Coaster
puzzle produced by Hanayama.
This model has all the rings in a uniform color. You can also buy the puzzle in different colored parts here:
Some parts are split to facilitate assembly. You can use epoxy glue to glue them together.
