When I was younger I would spend a lot of summers at my Aunts. My cousins had this wooden puzzle. I never knew the name and I can't find it on the web. I drew it in paint. It was about a foot long, 3 to 4 inches high and 3 to 4 inches wide. Each hole had a different size(depth) to it and the pegs were different sizes too. So you just couldn't put the longest peg in the shortest hole. They had to all be even when each other. If anyone sees something like this while looking for puzzles...let me know in a pm.

Thanks Melissa

BTW here's what it (somewhat) looks like...

I have a plastic version of this called Even Steven. It was made by Kohner in 1968. Trying to find the photo of it in my computer is like looking for a needle in a haystack. And forget about me going through my very haphazard storage to find it again soon. :lol: :lol:

If you go to Rob's Puzzle page you can see a picture of the version I am referring to. It is exactly as you describe. Scroll down about a third of the way to 3d edge-matching puzzles.

They are quite often found on an auction site near you for a reasonable price if you are looking to get a new one.

:) Thanks. That must be the new version of it. I'm pretty sure some site out there has a pic of the old wooden one.
