For Christmas, the kids got Ken this logic puzzle called Gordian's Knot. Apparently it's based on a legend of a puzzle that only Alexander the Great could solve back in the day.
The puzzle comes with a solution guide for taking the puzzle apart, and you can follow the steps in reverse to assemble it again. So Ken sits down the day after Christmas and attempts to take this thing apart on his own without the book. He worked on it for about 15 minutes, got frustrated and stopped. Now the puzzle is all messed up, looking nothing like it did before he started, and I'm wondering if it's even possible to unlock it now since we don't know if he's at a certain step in the book or not.
Has anyone here attempted the Gordian Knot before?
