Boston Tea Chest wooden puzzle
Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange – Boston, USA August 2006. 220 made.
Presented by Brian Young. Made by Brian Young @ Mr Puzzle Australia. Designed by Brian Young.
Original Price: AU$60.00
The object of the puzzle is to find the T inside the Boston Tea Chest. You will have to disassemble the burr to find it.
Brian got the idea behind this puzzle from an old Phillipe Dubois puzzle. The T shaped pieces were originally two sets of mirror-reversed triplets. He changed these pieces to ensure they were all different, giving it a unique solution, now separating on one axis only. Brian also added a locking mechanism that will ensure the puzzle is more difficult to disassemble.
Hint: A computer will not help you reassemble it.
Size: 90mm x 90mm x 90mm
