Not sure why this name, but I am sure this is a puzzle !!
Made in wood and designed directly from the devilish head of Jean-Claude Constantin, this nice little puzzle should puzzle you :)
The goal of N-5 is to free a small beall bearing and to be able to do so, you need to move the 4 sliders so that at the end the 2 holes match.
Of course, when you maneuver a slider sometimes it's restricted to few moves, sometimes it just does not move because of the position of other sliders. So you need to plan how to move other sliders before moving one slider.
It did not take me that long to solve, and it should not take you so long before solving it I am sure. It's just a question of analysis. So this puzzle is approcheable by non seasoned puzzlers as well and it's like a nice starter to introduce puzzles to your friends and family.
I do advise it if you like nice looking puzzles and wood puzzles, and of course if you like JCC puzzles in general.
If you're only into super hard puzzles, this may not be your cup of tea then... :)
And find there the solution as well !
