Mr Puzzle - We've got puzzles!

Current Category
Puzzles by Maker > Mr Puzzle Standard wood and nail puzzles


LOGO.gifMr Puzzle Australia presents a comprehensive range of complex puzzles in our standard range.  Often called brainteasers or mindbenders, our range of mechanical puzzles includes complex interlocking puzzles, commonly known as burr puzzles, tangrams, sequential move puzzles, and both rope puzzles and nail puzzles in our disentanglement range. 

Our nail puzzles in our disentanglement section use large plated nails and are presented on wooden stands rather than the standard wire puzzles.  
The wood used in our standard range is a plantation grown pine called Radiata which is then soaked in a cedar interior use stain and sealed with two coats of polyurethane clear satin.

Included with each puzzle is a Presentation Card which outlines the object of the puzzle, credits the inventor where known, details known history about the puzzle, and shows the difficulty rating as well as a printed Solution Sheet.

As well as our Standard Range of puzzles we also offer a Craftsman Range and some Limited Edition puzzles.

DIFFICULTY RATING 3

The puzzle is to separate the eight pieces - if you can never do this puzzle it can always be used a a teapot stand.

At first glance this puzzle appears to be an impossible object.  In puzzle terms, an impossible object is a puzzle that will not come apart or looks physically impossible to make.  For this type of puzzle, the puzzle is to determine how it was made in the first place.  The Puzzle Sticks is NOT an impossible object.  It will come apart without the use of force.

DIFFICULTY RATING 9 

The puzzle is to assemble the six piece burr. 

This puzzle really does show a case of 'don't judge a book by it's cover'.  It may look like other six piece burrs on the outside but it is DEFINITELY not.  The puzzle is incredibly more complicated than the commonly known six piece puzzle. This photo shows the Mega Six when it's about half way together or apart).  

Bill Cutler first used a computer program to analyse six piece burrs in 1974 but it took until 1990 to analyse all possible six piece burr combinations. 

Mega Six is the result of that search for the maximum number of moves for a six piece burr with a unique solution.  This does not mean it has a unique assembly, due to the number of internal voids.  In theory the pieces should fit together in 20 different ways however, the reality is that you can physically only put the puzzle together in one of the 20 assemblies.

Not only OUR hardest six piece burr but THE hardest six piece burr!

Covered by Australian Design Registration No 151844 and is made under license to Bill Cutler.

This puzzle is also available in our Craftsman Range in Jarrah, Blackbean or Silver Ash (Click here).

Edward Hordern Puzzle Exchange  - Boston, USA, August 2006
Presented by Brian Young.  Made by Brian Young @ Mr Puzzle Australia.  Designed by Brian Young.

The object of the puzzle is find the T inside the Boston Tea Chest.

You will have to disassemble the burr to find it.
Brian got the idea behind this puzzle from an old Phillipe Dubois puzzle. The T shaped pieces were originally two sets of mirror reversed triplets. He changed these pieces to ensure they were all different, giving it a unique solution, now separating on one axis only.  Brian also added a locking mechanism that will ensure the puzzle is more difficult to disassemble.
