If anyone remembers the first episode of Xiaolin Showdown or the second season of Jackie Chan Adventures, does anyone remember the mystic puzzle boxes that appeared in both (to contain Wuya and the key to the demon portal, respectively)? The ones that the characters solved as if they were crosses between Rubik's Cubes and actual Japanese puzzle boxes?
Yes? Alright, good.
Now, does anyone know the name of that sort of puzzle box, or were those simply pulled out of thin air by the writers?
And if, by chance, they weren't, then where might I find information on such puzzles?
