Nautilus Puzzle

Nervous System

Tired of the classic square-shaped puzzles? Maybe it's time to try something new. The innovative designers at Nervous System have created a unique spiral puzzle based on the whorled shell of a nautilus, which is a cephalopod related to octopi and squid.

Instead of starting from the exterior and working inwards as you would in standard puzzles, the spiral design of this jigsaw merges the edge with the interior pieces to make it a tricky challenge for even the most experienced jigsaw-enthusiasts. This shell puzzle is made up of 306 maze-style pieces that are laser-cut to ensure that they are unique, organic shapes. Among them are five cephalopod-shaped pieces, and one special seahorse piece.
