Stairs Cube 4 piece level 10.3.2 Stairs Cube 4 piece level 10.3.2 N/A





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.

 
Hourglass Osanori Yamamoto level 11.6.3.3 frame burr Hourglass Osanori Yamamoto level 11.6.3.3 frame burr


QTY:





The puzzle consists of single plane frame and 4 identical pieces. Some part of the pieces are actually made from the same wood as the frame and so when assembled they actually look like part of a larger frame.
With the right sequence of moves, level 11.6.3.3, and even rotational moves in the correct place, you can get all 4 pieces out of the frame.   There is only 1 possible solution.  Rotational moves do not mean force.  A rotational move means get the piece or pieces in the correct spot and there will be plenty of space to rotate.

 
Cockpit 3 piece framed burr Cockpit 3 piece framed burr N/A





The puzzle is to remove the 3 burr pieces from the cube frame and insert them again.

Designed recently by Japanese designer Osanori Yamamoto in early 2013 this puzzle has a very complex level 16.3 solution to solve it with a symmetrical colour pattern.

When the puzzle is completed with the symmetrical light colour bars in place on each face there is just one solution from possible assembles. If the colour pattern is ignored there are 2 solutions from 3 possible assemblies.

The level 16.3 solution means that it will take 16 moves to remove the first piece then another 3 to remove the second piece.

 
Mysterious Galaxy level 17.5.2.4 in a frame Mysterious Galaxy level 17.5.2.4 in a frame Out of Stock





Designed by Osanori Yamamoto in August 2012 this is the 'big brother' of the Galaxy Z.  This is a framed burr that is definitely going to take some time to master.
Of the two possible assemblies only one 17.5.2.4 solution is possible;  a seriously difficult puzzle in anyone's language.  There are 19 holes left inside the solved puzzle leaving plenty of space for the required rotational moves.  Rotational moves do not mean force.  A rotational move means get the piece or pieces in the correct spot and there will be plenty of space to rotate.

 
Galaxy Z level 19.2.3 framed burr Galaxy Z level 19.2.3 framed burr N/A





There are 4 identical pieces to fit inside the frame.  Of the 7 assemblies that will fill the frame, there is only one solution which is actually possible to get inside the frame and that's the Level 19.2.3.  In it's assembled state there are 34 voids inside that allow for all these moves.
The puzzle is sold assembled so that's 19 directional moves to get the first piece out, then still 2 more to remove the second piece, and three more to remove the third, even though at this point there's only half the pieces left inside the frame!

 
Ice Pillar 4 piece burr inside a tower frame Ice Pillar 4 piece burr inside a tower frame N/A





The puzzle is to remove the 4 burr pieces from the cross frame.

Japanese designer Osanori Yamamoto has been publishing his puzzle designs since the start of 2003.  This is one he released in 2012.

The frame is a symmetrical cross  into which the 4 burr pieces fit.  They can be removed and reinserted into the frame. 

There is a unique level 30.6.3 solution.  That means that it will take 30 moves to remove the first piece then another 6 to remove the second piece and still 3 more to get the third piece out.
