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.

Pylon 2P2C 2 piece 2 column frame puzzle Pylon 2P2C 2 piece 2 column frame puzzle


QTY:





The puzzle is to disassemble and reassemble the 3 piece framed burr.

Designed recently by Turkish designer Yavuz Demirhan in early 2013 this puzzle is unlike the type of framed burr you might be used to doing.

The frame is made of two towers fixed on a base and the puzzle has 2 congruent pieces that can be removed and reinserted into the frame. 

There are 4 possible assemblies but just one solution which is a level 9.9.  That means that it will take 9 moves to remove the first piece then another 9 to remove the second piece.

A fun and doable puzzle designed and invented by Anna Kalkowski.

Pento six piece 2d tray puzzle Pento six piece 2d tray puzzle


QTY:





The puzzle is to fit the six pieces into the tray.  It's pentominoes as you know them, with a twist, or two....
But what unusual pieces they are.  Each piece could actually be called two pieces. But they are joined by a hinged screw so the shape is flexible.  And the tray has drilled circles in the base into which the screw heads fit... or sometimes don't fit. 

A great new concept designed by Jürgen Reiche.

Difficulty Level 5 stars out of 7.  Pretty hard!

The puzzle uses multi-coloured woods and every puzzle is different. Some examples of colours are:

QTY:





Not very big but a challenging 7 moves to open. To open a Japanese puzzle box one or more sliding pieces hidden within the patterns on the box must be moved.
Perfect gift box for that very special small gift.
Imagine if someone has to find these moves before they can receive their gift? Perhaps you're giving a very special piece of jewellery, perhaps a ring, maybe even a diamond? This will certainly prolong the suspense.

Actual size outside: 60mm x 46mm x 37mm
Space inside: 35mm x 32mm x 25mm
Gift boxed as shown in this photo with a solution inside.
Because each puzzle box is handmade in Japan the pattern on each one will be very similar but may vary slightly from the photo shown here.

 
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?
