IPP36 Kyoto, Japan

It’s always the highlight of the year catching up with friends old and new at the International Puzzle Party each year.

This year IPP36 it was held in Kyoto, Japan.

My IPP Exchange Puzzle this year was a really attractive 8 piece seemingly interwoven burr puzzle designed by Yavuz Demirhan.  It’s a nice balance of wood interwoven with acrylic makes a good looking puzzle.  This puzzle is not so difficult to take apart.   But mix up the pieces, walk away and forget about them, come back later and you’ll find it quite difficult to put back together.   https://www.mrpuzzle.com.au/ovolo-interlocking-burr-yavuz-demirhan.html

Certainly the main focus of IPP is the puzzle sand puzzling but the events also includes bus trips to see the local sights and plenty of socialising with old friends.  Here’s a few pics of the fun from this year.
