This puzzle consists of three layers with six holes each. The upper and lower layers can be rotated. Two of the marble of the middle layer can be pushed out to the small gaps in the surrounding frame. These holes allow the remaining marbles to be moved.
There are 18 marbles. 6 Marbles for each of three colors. One set of colors is blue, red and yellow although other sets are known in versions with different bodies too.
Three colors of balls must be arranged so that a single color shows on each side of the puzzle (and the third color is hidden within the frame).

The original price is based on the official exchange rate (0.6 rubels per dollar) although in socialist time this was completely theoretical.
