Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange - Narita, Japan August 2013
Presented by Grant Smith. Designed by Junichi Yananose. Made by Mr Puzzle.
This puzzle was invented in September 2011 by Junichi Yananose. It has 6 different pieces and is a unique level 18.2 burr.
With only 6 pieces this means that on average each piece has got to move 3 times to assemble it into the correct shape. The Coming of Age MkII had 18 pieces and was a level 19 burr; at the time it was invented it was the most moves for a burr puzzle. This shows just how far burrs have come in the past 10 years or so. To top it off this puzzle has a unique solution too!
Our Rating 10/10 from the disassembled puzzle (without using BurrTools). The puzzle comes with a very clear step by step solution drawn by Junichi.
The puzzle is made from Queensland Silver Ash & Queensland Blackbean
Size: 80mm x 80mm x 80mm
You can choose to receive the puzzle disassembled (Brave! It's evil. Brian was actually thinking of a different four letter word to describe it but this is a public place!) or for a small additional cost we will assembled for you. Good value considering he's just spent the last hour putting only 4 together WITH the solution. Let's hope he gets better at it! This puzzle is a significant challenge even just to take apart.
