Grecian Computer: A Brainteaser Puzzle

In the summer of 1901, a mysterious contraption was discovered in a shipwreck off the Greek island of Antikythera. Since its discovery, the “Antikythera mechanism” has often been referred to as the world’s first-known analogue computer. Using technology that was lost to antiquity until the 14th century, this baffling mechanism was allegedly used to predict astronomical positions and eclipses, as well as the 4-year cycle of the Olympic games.

This unique, handheld brainteaser puzzle replicates that mechanism. The challenge is to turn the dials until all 12 columns each add up to 42 – but it secretly moves columns that you thought were already solved as you work on others!

This True Genius brainteaser takes patience, persistence, and a good mind for numbers. You think that modern computers are complicated -- just wait until you try working an ancient one! Perfect gift for math experts and computer geeks. Difficulty level 5 out of 5.
