Solution: CAST Amour

This is the solution for the CAST Amour puzzle.

Solution CAST Amour - Start
This puzzle can give quite some headaches but is not that hard to solve.

To start, separate the 2 rings to be in the configuration visible below.

Solution steps:

  1. Solution CAST Amour - Step 1
    From the above configuration, spin the ring following the arrow 1. When the ring opening reaches the metal heart, turn the ring following the arrow 2 to reach the configuration shown below. Warning: the male symbol (or female based on your start configuration) must NOT go through the opening of the other ring.

  2. Solution CAST Amour - Step 2
    Spin then the other ring to bring its opening at the metal heart level then turn it following the arrow to reach the configuration shown below.

  3. Solution CAST Amour - Step 3
    Continue to move the ring to bring its opening outside the metal heart.

  4. Solution CAST Amour - Step 4
    Once out of the heart, spin it at 180° to bring back its opening at the second hole of the metal heart and remove the ring completely.

  5. Solution CAST Amour - Step 5
    The same movement can be applied to the second ring to completely separate the 3 pieces. (Bring the opening outside the heart, do a 180° to have it back at the second hold in the heart then remove the ring).

  6. Well done, puzzle solved !
    Solution CAST Amour - Done
