Mr Puzzle - We've got puzzles!

Current Category
Puzzles by Difficulty > Difficulty Level 9


For a puzzle to be rated a 9 or 10 it must be VERY difficult to complete the puzzle, and VERY difficult to memorise the puzzle's solution.
A puzzle rated a 9 we expect that most people - say 80 % or so - will NEVER be able to master the puzzle without assistance from the solution.

Halt level 21.8.2 framed burr Halt level 21.8.2 framed burr Out of Stock





Question:  How can getting just 3 pieces out of the frame take 21 moves to get just the first piece out? 
Answer: When it's designed by Stéphane Chomine.
The ends of the pieces are designed in such a way that when they are inside the frame they spell the word HALT around the 4 sides.  But don't let that stop you from having a go at this one. 

 
Safe - free the Euro from the multi level maze Safe - free the Euro from the multi level maze


QTY:





Find the way through the double layered maze and free the Euro from the labyrinth.  A very, very hard puzzle puzzle designed by Jürgen Reiche at Siebenstein-Spiele.  Difficulty level 6  out of 7.

Made from laser cut Pakouk & Koto (Sipo) veneered plywood with perspex cover and so you can see all the workings of the maze;  a very good quality finish.

 
The First Box sequential discovery puzzle The First Box sequential discovery puzzle


QTY:





This is the improved metal version of the first puzzle box Wil designed back in 1984.  But in reality this is a sequential discovery puzzle not a puzzle box as most understand a puzzle box to be.

The puzzle is to remove the gold annodised metal rod inside.  To do this you do not need any tapping, no magnets and no external tools. Everything you need to solve the puzzle can be found inside the puzzle itself. The puzzle is made more difficult because you cannot see anything inside the box as you're solving it.

When you start the puzzle you can see into the hole in the bottom of the box that the gold anodised metal rod has a sad face on the end.  You'll have done the puzzle when you've removed the rod and put it back so that you can look into the bottom of the box and see a smiley face on the rod.

An elegant solution.  This means that no element of luck is necessary to solve the puzzle.  It can be solved at will with distinct and definite moves.

 
Zahnradlabyrinth double gear maze Zahnradlabyrinth double gear maze


QTY:





Two start positions. Two balls to get out of the maze. A double maze designed by Jean Claude Constantin to give you double the puzzle fun (and double the trouble!).

Move the two balls around the maze using the two gear wheels.  You need to consider the moves carefully because the gears are meshed together so every move on one gear will also move the other.

A great present for those engineering minded people (or those who think they are!) in your life.
Made from laser cut veneered plywood with perspex cover and so you can see all the workings of the maze; like all puzzles by Jean Claude Constantin the puzzle as a brilliant design with very high quality finish.

 
SEARious Burr 13 piece burr with secret lock SEARious Burr 13 piece burr with secret lock


QTY:





Edward Hordern Puzzle Exchange  - Chicago, USA,  August 2003
Another completely new design by Brian Young.

The puzzle is to take the SEARious burr apart.  Modelled on Chicago's tallest building, the Sears Tower, Brian created this 13 piece interlocking burr.  But it's so much more than just an interlocking burr;  incorporating the use of tools supplied as part of the puzzle it's biggest challenge is to open the secret lock.  It will take 13 steps to unlock the secret internal mechanism.   (The elegant solutions does not involve force, or banging, or hitting against another surface).

Considering it has no gravity pins or magnets Brian considers it to be a very challenging puzzle.

Is 13 your lucky number?

Lock 250 puzzle lock by Jean Claude Constantin Lock 250 puzzle lock by Jean Claude Constantin


QTY:





Designed by Jean Claude Constantin this puzzle is called Lock 250 because there are 250 moves to open... that means another 250 moves to close again.  And that's only if you get them all correct!   The 4 steel sliders on the front move the internal wooden plates of the puzzles and which slider you can move depends on the position of the internal plates.
The puzzle is made from laser cut plywood and the outside is veneered.

Stepping Burr level 10 burr Stepping Burr level 10 burr


QTY:





Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange - Narita, Japan  August 2013
Presented by Lambert Bright.  Designed by Junichi Yananose.  Made by Mr Puzzle.

This puzzle was invented in January 2012 by Junichi Yananose.   It has 6 different pieces and is a unique level 10 burr.  The finished shape is very attractive with the two toned wood but having these two different colours does not give any clues to the solution.

Our Rating 9/10 from the disassembled puzzle (without using BurrTools). The puzzle comes with a very clear step by step solution drawn by Junichi.  Sold DISASSEMBLED.

 
Mega Six 6 piece multiple move wood burr Standard Mega Six 6 piece multiple move wood burr Standard


QTY:





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).

The Egg progressive discovery puzzle The Egg progressive discovery puzzle


QTY:





The goal is to take the EGG apart into two pieces;  some might say "break" the egg.  But to do it you don't need to break anything.  No force, no banging, no magnets.

Start with the egg standing on it's end.  From there you will need to discover the series of moves in order than can unlock the mechanism holding the two halves of the EGG together.  With each discovery there is just enough feedback for you to progress to the next challenge;  but not too much.   This is a very difficult puzzle. 

Size: 95mm tall and 72mm round. 

The puzzle is very solidly made from anodised pink aluminum with a matt texture and the engineering of parts both inside and out is of excellent quality.  The name of the puzzle and its individual number engraved on the front and Wil's signature engraved on the bottom of the egg.  
Each egg is individually numbered and numbers have been issued randomly by Wil so even though number 190 shows in the photo there's every chance it will not be the number of the puzzle you receive.
