Crypsis is a different kind of puzzle box, ....actually, its more of a “trick” box really.

After 3 moves, the lids will fly open and a wind up paper butterfly flies up and out of the box. The look of amazement and bewilderment soon follows. It really is a flutter of fun. ; )

It took a bit of trial and error to get it all to work just right and the surprise so much better when you can instruct the next victim to not touch the top lids while attempting to solve., maybe a glitter cannon? ....thoughts anyone?

Well, you have gone and done it. You have “One-upped” yourself AGAIN!

Nice surprise in the box for the “solver”

This one was the prototype Rick, ...once I finish up the small run I am producing I will see if I can make a short video.

The finished run will be made of Curly Maple and Walnut with a large-ish 3D butterfly right on top of the box.
