Great gifts for someone who has everything.

Last June, I ordered one of the intermediate Tavern Puzzles for my adult son's birthday. His wife liked it better than he did. So when her birthday came in September I ordered another puzzle for her. She loved them both, which made me a very happy mother-in-law.


Brain Challenge

This product is great! It's not a simple puzzle that you can solve right away. It makes you think and challenges your brain as well as your hand-eye coordination. I want to buy them all!


Big fun!

Wow. Big fun - much bigger (format) than expected. Well made and decorative - soothes the frustration of not being able to solve them. I gave one as a gift and the recipient was thrilled.


Great for a Birthday Present

I purchased the Dirty Dog Puzzle for my son's 49th birthday and his wife is playing with it more than he is. They both are enjoying it. Looks like I'll have to buy my daughter-in-law another design when her birthday comes around. Thank you for a fun and different item to buy for birthday presents.


A good choice

This puzzle was also a Christmas present for another teenager. He's shared with his brother and parents & all gave it a thumbs up.

The Tucker-Jones Story

Tucker Jones - Mechanical Puzzles

Intellectual Ironwork

It’s refreshing to pick up a hunk of metal that doesn’t come with a screen, batteries, or embedded processors. But it’s not always relaxing. In fact, Tavern Puzzles can be incredibly challenging as you try to solve these hands-on brainteasers. Oftentimes the solution is multi-step and requires perseverance, but satisfaction is sweet when you finally figure out the trick.

The creator of Tavern Puzzles is blacksmith Dennis Sucilsky, who was researching 18th and 19th century architectural hardware (his specialty) when he came across hand-forged artifacts made by blacksmiths to entertain folks at
the local taverns. He started making reproductions of some of the antique designs, as well as creating his own original designs. Today, Dennis runs Tucker-Jones House with his wife, Donna, and all of their Tavern Puzzles are handcrafted and individually assembled in East Setauket, N.Y.

The puzzles vary in complexity, ranging from the relatively straightforward Iron Heart to the incredibly complex, 43-step Patience Puzzle. None of the puzzles requires brute force, just a precise manipulation of the pieces. If you get stuck, you can request Tavern Puzzle solutions online—but we’re not giving up yet.
