This puzzle has a somewhat complicated solution that works like a maze with dead ends and backtracking that can result in a very lost puzzler. These boxes were made with the ability to be reprogrammed into a different combination once the box is opened. Unlocking this box may seem easy until puzzle solvers realize they are trapped in a maze web and will need to figure out how to backtrack and start over again.
