Flowers 3 interlocking coordinated motion puzzle Flowers 3 interlocking coordinated motion puzzle


QTY:





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

Three different coloured woods shaped into an octahedron with a small curved pyramid appended to each side to form a beautiful flower shape.  And now you have to find where the four pieces start and finish so you can take it apart. Quite a challenge.  Maybe the biggest puzzle is to put it back together the way it was made.

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.

 
Ocvalhedron 26 interlocking coordinated motion puzzle Ocvalhedron 26 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.   

 

Ocvalhedron?   Is it an octahedron...?  maybe it started out that way?  Perhaps some artistic licence in the name by Vinco?   Whatever it is Vinco has used two contrasting coloured woods to form a beautiful symmetrical shape.  And now you have to find where the four pieces start and finish so you can take it apart. Quite a challenge.  Maybe the biggest puzzle is to put it back together the way it was made.

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.

 
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.

 
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.

 
Dual Tetrahedron 28  interlocking coordinated motion puzzle Dual Tetrahedron 28 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.   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.

QTY:





Designed by John Kirkman.   Made by Brian Young.  Put the 8 pieces in an 8x8 array in checkerboard pattern.  All pieces may be turned over but some are different on the reverse side.

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 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. 

 
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.

6 Sun 54 Step Designs



To open this Japanese puzzle box you must slide hidden panels in order.  There are 36 moves to make in the correct order and still this box holds one more secret.   One more move is required to find the second secret compartment.

Designs are allocated on a first ordered basis.  The number of skilled artisans trained in this traditional technique is very limited and we could not guarantee that a particular sold out design will be restocked in future.

Big Ben sequential discovery puzzle Big Ben sequential discovery puzzle


QTY:





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.
