Does anyone know were to purchase the wooden puzzle frame trick? I "think" it may be called "puzzle of life" but I am not sure. Anyone know if any U.S. dealers carry this prop? I found this: http://www.zauberzentrale.de/shop/Sparte+Mentalmagie/Merlin+der+Gro%DFe+oder+das+ZZM-Puzzlewunder+%28ZZM-Originaleffekt%29.html

But the puzzle they are selling does not look like the wood versions in the videos they list.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The puzzle is based on Winston Freer's "Tile Deal." It's not that difficult to make, from wood, foamboard, or cardboard: https://www.magicnook.com/MiniMysteries/MM-04TileDeal.htm

I believe Steven's Magic carry's it.

Arguably the best version is from [url=https://www.johnrogers.com/freer.html]John Rogers[/url].

The simple versions of this puzzle are indeed easily made, but the more sophisticated versions (such as Rogers') add a third-dimensional element that make them decidedly non-trivial.
