Hi, and welcome to another episode of Mr. Puzzle. Today, we will talk about this puzzle here, which is available all around the world under different names. In my case, I bought it under the name Tricky Pencil. The Tricky Pencil consists of two parts. One is a wooden stick, and the other part is just a loop here, made of a cord, and it’s closed, it cannot be opened. To use this as a puzzle, we need two more things. We need a shirt, like this. And we need a friend we can challenge to solve this puzzle. And actually, this puzzle can be also used as a very nice party trick, which I gonna show you now. You just make a bet with your friend that you will connect this piece, or this tricky pencil, to his shirt, and he has six minutes to remove it. But, there is, of course, something he need to do, and this is with every minute, he has to drink one shot. So the guys of you who are below eighteen, in Europe, or twenty-one in the US, you can use some, I don’t know, water or iced tea. For all the adults, I mean, since we’re talking about a friend of yours, we use the good stuff, okay? So. We gonna take the stick, and I will connect it now to my shirt, you will not see how to do it, and then, we gonna start with the game. Okay, here we go. So. I just connected the cord now, here, to my shirt. I just need to fill the glasses with some schnapps, of course, [snaps fingers] Okay, here we go. And now it’s time to start the puzzle. So, actually, if you give this to your friend, or if it’s connected to your own shirt, that you wear, it’s even more difficult to do than when you do it right now. So you can be sure, or pretty sure, that your friend will, most of your friends will not solve it within five minutes. So, when he starts, ja, he will start to fiddling here, just, I mean, the first move everyone will do is, of course, to take this piece here put it through here, and try to take it out. But, the cord is too short. It will not work. So he goes back. He tries to somehow get the wooden stick here through the hole. No chance. Will also not work. And, the time will run, so, he will just start to do it, and in the end, it will look more or less like this. What the hell? This is impossible, man! Oh, man! So this will be pretty much what it looks like. And now we come to the solution, which is pretty easy. So you just take the stick, you flip it over here, and now you take the stick, go through the hole, and you go through here. Same as we did before, in the beginning, but it will get stuck. The trick is, now, zoom in to see a little bit closer, the trick is now, we take these, this cord here, and put it here over the fabric, and this, to elongate our distance we can travel with our stick, this will enable us to take it out of the button hole. So just, quickly, assemble and dis-assemble it again, that you can see it. We start, actually, only with the cord, put it over here, and this enables us to get the stick through the button hole. And afterwards, when it’s through, we take it, and we move the ends together, tighten it up, and this is the trick, that you need to later, you need to move these to the outside. So when you want to dis-assemble it, it’s even better if you move it over here, and when you dis-assemble it, later, move it over here, put the pen- the pencil through here, through the hole, the cord will not be enough to remove it, but now, we take it, put it to the outside here, and we use the shirt to give us more travel for the stick, and we can take it out. It’s actually great trick, and you can be sure most of your friends will fail to do it, under pressure, when everyone is watching them. And it can be very very funny, believe me.
