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. 

 
4 piece Aluminium Jigsaw put together puzzle 4 piece Aluminium Jigsaw put together puzzle


QTY:





The puzzle is to take the four pieces of the puzzle apart and put them back together again.  Pick it up and they seem as though they are going to just fall apart, but no way is it going to be this easy.  Separating them requires precise movements by the puzzler.   A very sophisticated and quality version of a classic puzzle.

Two green and two silver solid precision machined aluminium shapes make up the puzzle. 
Ticks all the boxes for the classic executive desk toy!

Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange - London, England.  August 2014
Presented by Rosemary Howbrigg.  Designed by Junichi Yananose.  Made by Mr Puzzle.

Just three pieces to assemble around the black hole cube.  How hard can it be?  As many, many puzzle collectors know, surprisingly so when it's a Junichi Yananose design.
It may not be the hardest puzzle in the world but for a go Aha feeling it does not have to be.  And this one has it.  Aha!  Got it!  Never felt so good.

Puzzle sold disassembled for maximum puzzling enjoyment.

 
Voyage to Terra Australis double sided packing puzzle Voyage to Terra Australis double sided packing puzzle


QTY:





Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange - London, England.  August 2014
Presented by Brian Young.  Designed by Junichi Yananose.  Made by Mr Puzzle.

The puzzle uses the 12 different pentominoe pieces, printed on both sides with the outline of the Australian coastline. The object is to arrange the pieces in the frame so that the coastline is complete.

The pieces fit flat in the frame with no spare space similar to the 'unsolved' map you are given except that the solved coastline is a continuous line of the actual Australian continent. Pieces are printed on both sides so beware you may need to turn some over to find the correct solution.

Can you help Matthew Flinders fix his map of the Australian Coastline on his voyage to Terra Australis?

Keep I on the Burr 6 piece burr Keep I on the Burr 6 piece burr


QTY:





Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange - London, England.  August 2014
Presented by Karst Nauta.  Designed by Junichi Yananose.  Made by Mr Puzzle.

The shape of the final solution is in the name 'Keep I in the Burr' and you do really have to keep an eye on those pieces.

This 6 piece burr is sold assembled.  The puzzle is hard enough with a number of tricky moves to discover while taking it apart.  It will be hard enough to remember them to help you reassemble it, giving it to you apart would just be downright mean!
There are at least 12 moves before the pieces of the puzzle literally just fall apart and in some of those cases many of the pieces move at the same time.

Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange - London, England.  August 2014
Presented by John Moores.  Designed by John Moores, Junichi Yananose & Brian Young. Made by Mr Puzzle.

This puzzle is part of the category of puzzles known as Progressive Move or sometimes called Sequential Discovery.

The puzzle is designed in such a way that each discovery you make entices you further into the puzzles, to discover the next sequence or level, getting steadily more difficult as you go.

The object of the puzzle is to ultimately find Big Ben (which is this case is actually quite small, otherwise the puzzle would be almost as big as the real Queen Elizabeth Tower).  Along the way you will also find a representation of Queen Elizabeth's crown; no jewels included though!To do this you may only allowed to use tools supplied in the puzzle.  There are magnets and springs in the puzzle, but you do not need to hit this puzzle to release any locks.  

For an recent review of this puzzle check PuzzleMad blog http://www.puzzlemad.co.uk/2014/08/the-most-amazing-exchange-puzzle-in.html or google IPP Big Ben Puzzle.

 
Dual Tetrahedron 21  interlocking coordinated motion puzzle Dual Tetrahedron 21 interlocking coordinated motion puzzle


QTY:





The puzzle is to take the four pieces of the puzzle apart and then put them back together again which is even harder to do.  

The shape is like two tetrahedrons with rounded edges that have been joined together.   Two contrasting woods have been used to make an attractive pattern on each corner.  The uniform patterning of the different woods and precise hand fit of the puzzle make fitting the pieces back together even harder than taking the puzzle apart. 

Every puzzle is hand made by Vinco and individually fitted to the highest standard. Their interesting shaps, and the use of different colours and patterns, made them not just a puzzle but a very attractive piece of wooden artwork.

Tritalon remove the coin puzzle Tritalon remove the coin puzzle


QTY:





The puzzle is to take the coin out of the triangular frame and put it back in place again.

The puzzle is not hugely difficult but Brian has confidence in saying that you probably won't have another puzzle that looks and acts like this one in your collection and therefore it could easily trick you up for a while.

 
Stairs Cube 4 piece level 10.3.2 Stairs Cube 4 piece level 10.3.2


QTY:



Wood selection:



The puzzle is made from 2 board burr pieces coupled with 2 different H shaped pieces.  The combination makes a strange level 10.3.2 puzzle to put together but once assembled you’ll end up with a cube shape with stepped sides.
Watch out for this one;  you won’t solve this one in BurrTools so to cheat you’ll have to study the solution.

 
Cubax 13 piece framed burr Cubax 13 piece framed burr


QTY:



Wood selection



We decided to get this one because of how deceiving it looks.   It is a 13 piece interlocking burr.  But when it’s assembled it looks like a three piece framed burr.  Not a high degree of difficulty to take apart but a very fun burr.  Very enjoyable to do.  A must for any collection because we’ve not seen too many puzzles like this before.

 
Box Packing with pieces that clamp around the frame Box Packing with pieces that clamp around the frame


QTY:



Wood selection:



A very unusual design for a packing puzzle.  The pieces hook around the outside of the box like clamps as well as using the space inside the box.  This restricts the movement and makes a unique solution.   First problem is to unpack the pieces from within the box; in itself a difficult level 8.4.3 interlocked puzzle.  Once you have the pieces out its hard to keep track of which one is which;  unusual shapes that are similar but quite different.

Yavuz has challenged us this time with a 15 piece multiple move interlocking burr with a level 3 disassembly.  But how to konstruct the puzzle with the 12 pieces locking around the outside of a core classic 3 piece board burr?  An ingenious addition to a classic design Prof. Louis Hoffman called The Cross-Keys in his book Puzzles Old and New published in London in 1893.

Tower of Hanoi n-ary puzzle Tower of Hanoi n-ary puzzle


QTY:





The objective of the puzzle is to move the entire stack of disks and the ball on top to another rod, obeying the following simple rules:
1.Only one disk may be moved at a time.
2.Each move consists of taking the upper disk from one of the stacks and placing it on top of another stack.
3.No disk may be placed on top of a smaller disk or the ball.

Mathematically this is a type of "n-ary" puzzle meaning each move has "n" number of state - in this case 2 states being binary.  Read more about n-ary puzzles and see others we have here.
