Six circles with eight pieces except one hole for the whole puzzle.

Anyone who can solve the classic 15-square puzzle can solve this one in under 10 minutes. The parity problem (two pieces swapped or with one tile turned upside down) only appears to happen if you make all tile colors match their face color and all numbers increase clockwise with down as out from center (but probably not real see next sentence). Image 15 prooves that some versions had a removable pin to be placed in the remaining hole.
Diameter 84 mm
Weight: 134 grams
