IPP Puzzle Exchange  - Luxembourg, August 1996
Presented by Akio Kamei.  Made by Karakuri Creation Group.  Designed by Akio Kamei.

This puzzle was originally designed by Akio Kamei for the IPP16 Puzzle Exchange event held in Luxembourg in 1996.  Back then he called it 3D Box.   The puzzle continues to be made at the Karakuri Creation Group and is as tricky as ever even now!

This puzzle box is quite different looking to others in the set;  and although its not the most difficult its mechanism is quite different too and so a must for any collector of Kamei designs.

This very special puzzle box is crafted in Keyaki (the Japanese word for the wood from the Zelkova tree; part of the Elm family) and Walnut woods.

Size outside: 58mm x 58mm x 58mm    A solution is provided.

 
Karakuri small cube puzzle box #1 Karakuri small cube puzzle box #1 N/A





Designed & made by the Karakuri Creation Group this puzzle is unlike other more traditional Japanese puzzle boxes. Once you know the solution you can open it in just three moves. But one of them is quite a unique movement compared to other Japanese puzzles boxes and so it's hard to open it without being shown. A very tricky little puzzle box!

This very special puzzle box is crafted in Walnut wood.

Size outside: 47mm x 47mm x 47mm
Space inside: 22mm x 19mm x 33mm

 
Karakuri small cube puzzle box #6 Karakuri small cube puzzle box #6


QTY:





Designed & made by the Karakuri Creation Group. The top of the box is obviously separate from the bottom and the bottom, it can move in and out slightly, and when you shake the puzzle it rattles. Not like other Japanese puzzle box designs that's for sure.

This very special puzzle box is crafted in Walnut wood.

Size outside: 47mm x 47mm x 47mm
Space inside: 27mm x 27mm x 15mm  A great space for a ring!

Karakuri small puzzle box #5 Karakuri small puzzle box #5


QTY:





Designed & made by the Karakuri Creation Group this group of puzzles is unlike other more traditional Japanese puzzle boxes.  First, it has a very obvious separate base.  Second, when you rattle it you can hear an object rolling around inside. No force is required, no tapping, or hitting the puzzle, none what so ever.

Maybe you can take some clue from the words of the Japanese designers "Even though you try to open it 'in your hands', it isn’t easy to open. You may not think you need a desk, but it sincerely is helpful to solve the puzzle."  Or maybe that will only confuse you more.

This very special puzzle box is crafted in Maple wood.

Size outside: 48mm x 34mm x 42mm
Space inside: 25mm x 25mm x 25mm

Designed & made by the Karakuri Creation Group this puzzle is unlike other more traditional Japanese puzzle boxes. It is not the hardest puzzle box in this series but its a very interesting play on the idea of a traditional Japanese puzzle box with a very elegant solution.

The designers words about this puzzle are: "I believe you can find the first step easily. The second moves in unexpected way that is different from standard Secret Boxes. And the third step is the solution. The first and second steps are the keys of the third step. But, add to this, the first and second steps are useful for how to move the third step."

Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange  - Prague, Czech Republic, August 2008
Presented by Karst Nauta.  Made by Brian Young @ Mr Puzzle Australia.  Designed by Karst Nauta.

The puzzle is to separate the two halves of the cube.  To solve this puzzle you need to employ a technique where you try to map the paths of the numerous gravity pins inside that hold the two halves together.   It might come apart by accident if you play with it long enough but it will be very difficult to learn this puzzle by heart

 
Groovy Cubes 8 piece cube puzzle Groovy Cubes 8 piece cube puzzle


QTY:





DIFFICULTY RATING 7

The puzzle is to build a solid cube from the eight pieces. Rick Eason invented this puzzle and presented it as his Exchange Puzzle at IPP24  in Tokyo in 2004 and it is with his kind permission that we make this puzzle.   All eight pieces of the puzzle are different which increases the degree of difficulty of the puzzle.  To achieve the only possible correct solution you must find the unique combination of dovetails and grooves, and the correct order to assemble them, that allows the pieces to fit together to form the solid cube.

Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange - Narita, Japan  August 2013
Presented by Lambert Bright.  Designed by Junichi Yananose.  Made by Mr Puzzle.

This puzzle was invented in January 2012 by Junichi Yananose.   It has 6 different pieces and is a unique level 10 burr.  The finished shape is very attractive with the two toned wood but having these two different colours does not give any clues to the solution.

Our Rating 9/10 from the disassembled puzzle (without using BurrTools). The puzzle comes with a very clear step by step solution drawn by Junichi.  Sold DISASSEMBLED.
