Put your mathematical skills to the test in this puzzle inspired by the genius of the ancient Greek astronomers.

The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient model of the solar system that was found in a shipwreck in 1901. It's been called the world's first analog computer, and experts believe that it was used to predict astronomical cycled, eclipses, and the cycles of the ancient Olympiad.

Our brain-bending Grecian Computer Puzzle uses a similar interlocking design and challenges players to turn the dials until all 12 columns add up to 42.
