Hidden in a cupboard in Church is this small item…
It came among some items given to church by someone who worked in the field of Mathematics, who was interested in puzzles and mathematical recreations. The pegs, of course, may not at present be in the correct holes.
Is it a game, or is it a puzzle? can you help?
This has puzzled some people at church recently and so if you know please comment below – we’d be grateful.
