 Luban lock also known as Ming lock. It comes from ancient Chinese architecture. China’s ancient buildings always use mortise and tenon joint instead of nails. The mortise and tenon joint is more stable and strong. The aim of this game is to unlock the Luban lock to several pieces or assemble them.
