      I got one of these and it made me so mad because I could not figure it out, thus I could not get to the wine, thus, the bottle almost got broken! Luckily the giver took mercy on me (I think only because they wanted some wine too!) This is a vicious gift!!! If you love messing with others, this is a good one.

      I have never seen these puzzles before! I would probably need to drink a bottle of wine BEFORE attempting to solve one. I do appreciate that you have the solutions posted, though.
