  • Handmade
  • Dispatches from a small business in


  • Materials: wood, laser, lasercut

Each secret decoder ring is a brainteasing puzzle that promotes literacy.
Each game has 36 words to decode.
Words are decoded by rotating the outer rings.
Each ring has 36 letters.
The innermost set of letters is always fixed.

By rotating the rings, words are revealed from outermost to innermost rings.
Once all 36 words have been lined up, the puzzle is solved.

As a coffeetable game, the rings are self-entertaining for your guests while you tend to other things.
Typically it takes 15-20 minutes to solve 3-letter words and could be an hour to solve a 4-letter words game.

Secret Decoder Ring #1 makes 36 3-letter animal names like CAT, ASP and EEL.
The other rings make 3-letter generic words.
Rings #5 and #6 make 4-letter words.

Size varies from 5 to 7 inches.

Each game is handmade and lasercut from 1/4-inch wood.
