This is a little selection of situation puzzles that you can make by yourself easily and using easy-to-find materials.

The first ones, the Come-Cocon's pyramids series, are really special for me and I recommend you to build them. Their difficulty is progressive ―the more layers the puzzle has, the harder it is to find the solution. That's why you should begin with the first one and then continue adding more rings.

### Come-Cocon IV's pyramid.

Come-Cocon III didn't have children, but in order to distract grave robbers he commanded his servants to keep digging and to build one more chamber.

Once the construction was over, the workers lost the plans so they couldn't get out of the pyramid. That's why their souls are still wandering in the chambers waiting for someone to tell them how to escape.

This time I won't help you telling you the solution for this situation puzzle. The difficulty is high, but it is just a matter of time for you to solve it.

If you get to release the handle you can keep increasing the difficulty by adding more layers with their own ring —a real challenge for your cleverness.

### Come-Cocon III's pyramid.

He continued with the family construction by digging even more in the desert sand in order to build another floor, which would be a refuge for his soul and a den for his treasure.

To go out of this chamber, D, it was also necessary to go through the others before getting outside.

If you build this new situation puzzle you will verify that the difficulty is higher. But if you got to solve the previous ones, you will be able to succeed with this one.

As previously, here you can find the solution  for the situation puzzle in case you needed it.

### Come-Cocon II's pyramid.

Come-Cocon had a son, Come-Cocon II, who continued with his father construction by deepening into the desert sand in order to build one more chamber, D, where he would be buried along with his treasure.

He took advantage of the traps and mazes built by his father, and to escape from chamber D it was necessary to go through C,  then go to B and A to finally get outside.

Building this situation puzzle out of wire is similar to the previous one, in this case you just need to add one more layer and one more ring alike to the others.

Solving this puzzle is a little bit harder, but it is still easy. If you can't release the handle, here you can find some help.

### Come-Cocon's pyramid.

Thousands of years ago, there was in Egypt a pharaoh named Come-Cocon who, as it was tradition, ordered to build a pyramid for him to have a refuge during his eternal rest.

The plans were overambitious: a pyramid with lots of chambers connected through mazes that would prevent the numerous grave robbers from stealing his treasure and disturbing his rest.

Come-Cocon died young and the pyramid wasn't complete yet, so he was buried when the building had just three chambers. It was possible to get to the chamber where Come-Cocon's sarcophagus was right from outside, but once inside the pyramid the door would close and it would be necessary to go to chamber B and then A in order to escape.

If you are interested in the challenge suggested by Come-Cocon, build a pyramid out of wire following the proportion in the picture and taking into account that the handle must be longer than the height of the pyramid but narrower than the inner diameter of the rings.

The difficulty of this puzzle is low, but here you can find the solution in case you needed it.
