Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Total Eclipse is a spherical cage with two rings inside. The object is to get the two rings out. That is difficult, as each of the rings is solving a maze.

The name of the puzzle refers to the total eclipse of the sun in 1999, which was visible in Europe. The puzzle was developed earlier that year.

Watch the YouTube video of the nylon version.
Watch the YouTube video of the metal version.
Buy the nylon version at my Shapeways Shop.

Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

How much do the two mazes interact? It would be a shame if the solution didn't require at least some amount of going backwards on work towards solving maze A in order to solve maze B.

Could you put another couple of rings inside the inner two, and/or make the outer cage out of 3 rings that also have to be separated?

you should make the outer cage a 2x2 with moving burrs. I love mixed type puzzles

Great work
