Kevin Sadler wrote about it:

“The Rattle Twist V is very reminiscent of the Wing Hanger and the King Box also by Osanori. Like the other puzzles reviewed, it takes the older similar puzzles to a whole new level of difficulty and fun. The premise here is a frame with holes in it and a couple of complex burr sticks which need to be slid into position inside the frame but with an impediment to the sliding process making for a more complex dance of the pieces before assembly is complete. I would usually have preferred these puzzles as disassembly puzzles but at the Paris IPP, I was convinced by John Rausch that the best part of these puzzles is the assembly from scratch – as usual, he is right! This puzzle is unlikely to be solved by simple trial and error, it requires first looking at the pieces and the frame and making a plan for how to go about it. A few false starts will teach you where the pieces can and cannot go and thus the dance begins. Enjoy it… I did.”

    I really love the “simplicity” of Rattle Twist III, in the meaning of the pieces, 5 moves only but where is the beginning of it all if you can rotate the whole thing in frame? Do you like it too? OK, be prepared to level up. More complex pieces and look at the two floor frame – so much possibilities to move and of course, you will receive this puzzles disassembled for more fun. As Kevin wrote, study the pieces first and enjoy the final dance to the solved state. I hope Osanori is working at Rattle Twists VI – X 🙂
