vincubevincosmall.jpgSome interlocking puzzles just cannot be described as Burr puzzles.   These are not always wooden puzzles;  interlocking puzzles are sometimes part of the metal puzzle type as well. They may be Figures or Geometric shapes like the interlocking wooden puzzle of a wine glass or Vinco's intriguing interlocking wooden puzzles which are as difficult to take apart as they are to put together.  This puzzle section has everything from very hard puzzles like the All Five - Wayne Daniel designed 5 platonic solids to very easy puzzles (well, maybe not that easy) like theTimes Square 8 piece interlocking puzzle, from interesting new brain teaser designs like the pewter interlocking puzzle of a platypus to age old traditional puzzles like the cube puzzle we all know.

Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange - Berlin, August 2011
Presented by Laurie Brokenshire. Made by Václav Obšívac. Designed by Václav Obšívac.

Difficulty 5+/5    It's difficult to know if this puzzle should be called a two piece or a four piece puzzle. But it's definitely two; even though it looks like a couple of pieces from other Vinco puzzles have got tangled together...   (see one of the pieces below)
With these two pieces it is possible to lock them together and make a solid, symmetrical shape.

2. Bi-Cycle.   Each corner of the cube must be one single colour (a bit trickier)
3. Tri-Cycle.  The cube must have no identical colour touching anywhere, not even diagonally or on an edge (a lot more though required to do this one)

Outside Shape



The challenge is take the four piece puzzle apart.  If you manage that then putting it back together is even harder.
Each puzzle has the same 4 complex pieces but the outside configuration of the puzzle varies.  This makes each puzzle quite different when finding the facets to grip to open the puzzle. 
Only puzzle available now is: 4. Truncated Octahedron (Truncocta - 6 square and 8 truncated triangular faces). 

 
Cube After Party interlocking coordinated motion puzzle Cube After Party interlocking coordinated motion puzzle


QTY:





The puzzle is to take the four pieces of the puzzle apart; putting them back together will be even harder to do.  

The shape is symmetrical in length of it’s diagonal axis but there are two different sized sides.   You end up with this shape that looks a bit like an out of square cube.  A Crazy Cube! A Cube after it’s been to a party!

The stocks of these new coordinated motion puzzles are very limited and we do not know if Vinco will be making more of these particular puzzles in the future.

 
Dual Tetrahedron 5 interlocking coordinated motion puzzle Dual Tetrahedron 5 interlocking coordinated motion puzzle


QTY:





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

The shape is two tetrahedrons that have been joined together with the edges and vertexes truncated although recognising the original shape is very difficult in the end result.  This, and the very precise fit and pattern, just makes fitting the pieces back together even harder;  that is assuming you can even get it apart.

The stocks of these new coordinated motion puzzles are very limited and we do not know if Vinco will be making more of these particular puzzles in the future.

 
Pelikan Egg wooden interlocking puzzle on Stand Pelikan Egg wooden interlocking puzzle on Stand


QTY:





An ingenious 4 piece interlocking egg puzzle on a turned wooden stand designed in 2007 by Jaroslav Svejkovski.  Whilst this is not considered an extremely difficult puzzle, the pieces are each made from many smaller complex shaped pieces glued together; finding the correct combination that are not glued, to push or pull to take apart, is very important.

Once you take this puzzle apart you will need to fit the 4 pieces back together paying attention to forming the smooth surface of the egg.  Because these puzzles are hand turned and finished there is only one solution.  There may be a number of different assemblies but for the finished puzzle to exactly as it was made you must assemble it correctly.

A great long lasting Easter present for a puzzler instead of too much chocolate.

 
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

 
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.
