An Unusual Clock

BabyBat helped me make a prop for my Monstrarium adventure this weekend.


All the circles can be moved, and so can the hands. I can't wait to see if anyone solves it - doing so isn't required for the adventure to continue, but it might offer some assistance.

  1. Very cool prop. I like the idea of puzzles that offer assistance without *needing* to be solved for the adventure to advance. It's an idea I've been playing around with lately, too.

    1. Thanks - it was a lot of fun to have something physical to play with, and I don't think it would have worked otherwise.

      Puzzles that completely block the adventure definitely get frustrating more quickly than puzzles that can be thought over, and come back to later when more clues are revealed. In this case the puzzle gave some interesting (if superfluous) story information and a bit of bonus treasure/xp.
