The 15 Puzzle Book The 15 Puzzle Book


QTY:





Written by Jerry Slocum and Dic Sonneveld.   Published by The Slocum Puzzle Foundation.   First published in 2006. 144 full colour glossy pages  Hard cover.   The story of the puzzle that started the craze of 1880 and how America's greatest puzzle designer, Sam Loyd, fooled everyone for 115 years!

There have been many amazing reviews of this book. One of the exerpts below; click this link to read them all.

Martin Gardner, Author of 15 Classic Books on Mathematical Recreations - "Jerry Slocum and Dic Sonneveld have written an amazing tour de force. It covers in fantastic detail the history of the greatest mechanical puzzle craze ever to sweep not only the United States but also England and Europe. The Rubik's Cube mania was modest in comparison. Did Sam Loyd, America's greatest puzzle maker, invent the notorious 14-15 sliding block puzzle? He claimed he did but the claim was a total lie."

Mega Six 6 piece multiple move wood burr Standard Mega Six 6 piece multiple move wood burr Standard


QTY:





DIFFICULTY RATING 9 

The puzzle is to assemble the six piece burr. 

This puzzle really does show a case of 'don't judge a book by it's cover'.  It may look like other six piece burrs on the outside but it is DEFINITELY not.  The puzzle is incredibly more complicated than the commonly known six piece puzzle. This photo shows the Mega Six when it's about half way together or apart).  

Bill Cutler first used a computer program to analyse six piece burrs in 1974 but it took until 1990 to analyse all possible six piece burr combinations. 

Mega Six is the result of that search for the maximum number of moves for a six piece burr with a unique solution.  This does not mean it has a unique assembly, due to the number of internal voids.  In theory the pieces should fit together in 20 different ways however, the reality is that you can physically only put the puzzle together in one of the 20 assemblies.

Not only OUR hardest six piece burr but THE hardest six piece burr!

Covered by Australian Design Registration No 151844 and is made under license to Bill Cutler.

This puzzle is also available in our Craftsman Range in Jarrah, Blackbean or Silver Ash (Click here).

Presented by Frank Potts.  Made by Brian Young @ Mr Puzzle Australia.  Designed by Frank Potts.

Status: 30th March 2013. Only 20 left. Once sold we won't make this puzzle again.

The object of the puzzle is to disassemble the burr and then reassemble.  It's a level 9,3 burr but the challenge may not just be about the number of moves to disassemble the burr.

Reviewed as a good "all round" puzzle by someone who says they are not really into burrs http://puzzle-obsessed.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/sly-burr-frank-potts.html

Cockpit 3 piece framed burr Cockpit 3 piece framed burr


QTY:





The puzzle is to remove the 3 burr pieces from the cube frame and insert them again.

Designed recently by Japanese designer Osanori Yamamoto in early 2013 this puzzle has a very complex level 16.3 solution to solve it with a symmetrical colour pattern.

When the puzzle is completed with the symmetrical light colour bars in place on each face there is just one solution from possible assembles. If the colour pattern is ignored there are 2 solutions from 3 possible assemblies.

The level 16.3 solution means that it will take 16 moves to remove the first piece then another 3 to remove the second piece.

Hourglass Osanori Yamamoto level 11.6.3.3 frame burr Hourglass Osanori Yamamoto level 11.6.3.3 frame burr


QTY:





The puzzle consists of single plane frame and 4 identical pieces. Some part of the pieces are actually made from the same wood as the frame and so when assembled they actually look like part of a larger frame.
With the right sequence of moves, level 11.6.3.3, and even rotational moves in the correct place, you can get all 4 pieces out of the frame.   There is only 1 possible solution.  Rotational moves do not mean force.  A rotational move means get the piece or pieces in the correct spot and there will be plenty of space to rotate.
