If you purchase a box of the new Diesel Stubborn Fool, you will have a chance to play a special interactive gave involving riddles with the chance at winning special prizes.

Stubborn Fool is the first of the new Fool’s Errand trilogy from Diesel. It’s a unique 5 x 58 perfecto size that uses a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over a binder from the Jamastran Valley in Honduras and fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua. Like other Diesel cigars, it is being produced at Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.

The MSRP is set at $9.99 per cigar and it will come in boxes of 10 cigars. It is described as a limited edition, though production numbers have not been disclosed.

Each box will come with a tarot card inside that includes a QR code. If you scan the QR code you’ll be able to play an interactive game that the company says will have the cigar smoker “complete the Stubborn Fool’s errand by solving a series of riddles.” There are prizes that will be awarded randomly to 10 people.

“AJ Fernandez and I recently completed the Elixir trilogy and in that time, Diesel fans grew accustomed to our cool approach to limited edition cigars,” said Justin Andrews, business development manager for STG’s North American Branded and Rest of World divisions. “We’re keeping the tradition alive with ‘Fool’s Errand.’ It’s our next three-year series, and we’ll launch it annually to kick off spring. With Fool’s Errand, we’re taking it to the next level by adding an interactive game to the mix. As far as the blends for Fool’s Errand go, we definitely won’t disappoint.”

The company says the plan is to launch a new release each spring, meaning the trilogy should conclude in 2024.
