The 2010 Annual Series of Limited Edition is now available.  2 different Limited Edition puzzles to choose from. 

SOLD OUT The Windmill Burr  Designer: Junichi Yananose 
A limited edition set of 40 puzzles.  12 piece burr.  Level 20.  Unique solution.  Another brilliant burr designed by Junichi. 

Junichi Yananose's burr designs are always incredibly popular.  The last one we made was the Tornado Burr in 2008 and it sold out in just a couple of weeks.  This is another one of his best designs.

SOLD OUT  The Opening Bat Designer: Brian Young    
A limited edition of 50 puzzles. Three major locks and much much more. No gravity pins; no "bashing" or "tapping". Tools to discover for all steps in the puzzle. Lots of puzzles in one.

Previous Aussie themed Sequential Discovery puzzles that Brian has released in Limited Edition series have sold very quickly. Ned Kelly back in 2002 sold in just a few days and so did Whilemina the Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat in 2008. You can't get any more Aussie than a game of cricket!




SOLD OUT The Opening Bat sequential discovery Cricket Bat Puzzle SOLD OUT The Opening Bat sequential discovery Cricket Bat Puzzle N/A





LIMITED EDITION of 50 puzzles released 1st December 2010 - Price fully inclusive of freight.

Status 19th March 2012. Sold Out.

Designer: Brian Young  Three major locks and much much more.  No gravity pins;  no "bashing" or "tapping".  Tools to discover for all steps in the puzzle.

The name is The Opening Bat and that's exactly what you have to do;  open the cricket bat to find all you will need to play test cricket and win that holy grail.

By buying this single Limited Edition puzzle you're getting a number of puzzles in one.  It's not just a single puzzle.  This puzzle will seem to go on and on.  You will be continually finding more tools and more puzzles to solve.    This mammoth puzzle combines many ideas into one sequential discovery puzzle that tells a story as you solve each step of the puzzle.  And there are a lot of steps including three major locks and more different puzzles, locking mechanisms and tools than Brian has ever incorporated into a single puzzle before.

Yes, there are lots of locks, but no gravity pins.  And yes, there are lots of magnets but no "tapping" or "banging";  there's tools supplied to solve each of the locks.

Brian has machined over 20 individual metal components which make up the locks and the tools required to operate them.   There's a lot of woodturning too, right down to the wooden urn which is an essential key to one of the locks.  Since returning from IPP30 in Japan he seems to have done nothing else!

Price fully inclusive of freight - no freight will be calculated on this puzzle at checkout.

 

 
SOLD OUT The Windmill Burr 12 piece burr Junichi design SOLD OUT The Windmill Burr 12 piece burr Junichi design N/A





LIMITED EDITION of 40 puzzles released 1st December 2010 - Price fully inclusive of freight. 

Status 22nd February 2013 - Sold out.

Designer: Junichi Yananose.   12 piece burr. Level 20.  Unique solution.  Another brilliant burr designed by Junichi. 

This 12 piece burr has all the hallmarks of a Junichi Yananose design and a few surprises too.   It looks straight forward but it's surprisingly difficult.  The design is elegantly symmetrical.  The visibility into the puzzle is amazing and yet once together it's very stable.   It has a unique assembly and solution.  It takes 20 moves to get the first pieces out.  The puzzle has lots of pieces that move at the same time;  some of these moves include up to 5 or 6 pieces moving at the same time, counted as a single move.  

When you have a puzzle with so many parts moving at the same time it needs to be very accurately cut.  By definition this (and the time involved to assemble the puzzle - although hopefully Brian will get better with practise at putting them together!) does not lend itself to mass production; hence a perfect design for a Limited Edition series.   

During 2007 Junichi was researching some of the subspecies of the Alterkruse puzzle.   The Windmill Burr is one of the variations that came from that project.
