First Cylinder take apart progressive move puzzle First Cylinder take apart progressive move puzzle


QTY:





The object of the puzzle is to open the cylinder.  As usual with Wil's designs, this is nowhere near as easy as it sounds!

And sound is important when solving this puzzle.  This puzzle does not give up it's secrets easily and like a lot of Wil's puzzles you are often working blind.

 
Aluminum Cross take apart puzzle Aluminum Cross take apart puzzle


QTY:





In 1980 the Dutch designer Wil Strijbos created his first puzzle and this is it. The Aluminum Cross. And it's design is still as unique and intriguing as when he first created it over 30 years ago.

At first you might think this is the same as other 'cross' puzzles you've seen before.  It's not!
You might also think it does not look very difficult to take it apart.  It is!
And once you have it apart you might think it will not be very difficult to put it back together.  It is!

Possibly the most intriguing thing about this puzzle is that even if you see the elements of the puzzle when it's apart the solution is not obvious.  Wil is so confident of this fact that the puzzle even comes with a photo showing the internal workings of the puzzle.  But he does not supply the solution.

 
Japanese secret opening box 5 sun 21 step + 1 Japanese secret opening box 5 sun 21 step + 1 N/A

This very special puzzle box is made of walnut with decorative strips of contrasting coloured woods on both top and bottom. There are 4 different designs to choose from - pick the desired design code from the drop down box. The finish on all aspects of this box is amazing; even other sliding panels on the walnut face are well matched so that they are almost impossible to see.

Convolution No 2 wooden ball puzzle on Stand Convolution No 2 wooden ball puzzle on Stand


QTY:





A seven piece wooden ball (koule in Czech) puzzle on a turned wooden stand.

The basis of this puzzle is the Stewart Coffin designed Convolution Cube.  The puzzle is rated as Demanding.  Each of the 7 pieces is made from a combination of different species and colours of wood.  The pieces are totally interlocked to make a solid sphere with a single solution.  Yes, there are no voids inside the sphere.  The bigger challenge is probably putting this puzzle back together, but in disassembly, even after you've found the first couple of pieces it still hasn't released all it's secrets.

Each puzzle piece is made from many smaller complex shaped pieces glued together; finding the correct combination that are not glued, to push or pull to take apart, may be quite difficult. 

Solution: A video on assembly and disassembly is supplied on DVD with the puzzle.

 
OSM Ball wooden interlocking puzzle on Stand OSM Ball wooden interlocking puzzle on Stand N/A





osm is the Czech word for 8.  An 8 piece interlocking wooden ball puzzle on a turned wooden stand which will really challenge your dexterity skills.  Precise positioning of fingers from both hands may be required to take the puzzle apart and then you still have the challenge to reassemble it paying particular attention to colour uniformity.

Each puzzle piece is made from many smaller complex shaped pieces glued together; finding the correct combination that are not glued, to push or pull to take apart, may be quite difficult. 

Solution: A video on assembly and disassembly is supplied on DVD with the puzzle

 
Lotus sequential discovery puzzle Lotus sequential discovery puzzle Out of Stock





The object of the Lotus is to find the Lotus Flower.

To do this you need to remove an aluminum circular disc with a rod running through the centre. But if you think you've done the puzzle by then you're very much mistaken.

The Lotus is based on the Yen Puzzle which was invented by Wil back in 1979.  That puzzle had a wooden frame with a nail in it that held a Japanese Yen Coin.  This new puzzle is beautifully machined from anodised blue aluminum and has additional secrets not found in the original design.  Those secrets are where the puzzle gets it's name Lotus Flower and until you understand the reason for the name it can be said you have not solved the puzzle.

There are many, many step in this puzzle. Many small parts.  No banging, no tapping, no external tools, no force in any way;  just enjoy the puzzle and find the secrets of the Lotus Flower.

Generation Lock over 340 million moves Generation Lock over 340 million moves


QTY:





Designed by Jean Claude Constantin this puzzle is the big (VERY BIG) brother of the Lock 250 also available for sale at Mr Puzzle.  The 8 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.

Dr Goetz Schwandtner from Germany did an analysis of the number of moves to solve the puzzle and came up with over 340 million moves! 341 718 750 to be exact.  He has published his theory here.  He says that "assuming we employ a group of puzzlers willing to work full time on this lock, without holidays and in shifts, so that the solving is going on 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year, and on average 2 seconds per  move, this will take about 21.6 years".  A big thanks to Goetz for the analysis.

 
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.
