IPP - International Puzzle Party

These are completely new puzzle designs that have been created by Brian and other puzzlers to exchange with other puzzle collectors at the Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange over the past few years. For more information about the event read on at the bottom of this page.

The IPP Puzzle Exchange event takes place each year to honour an amazing puzzle collector Edward Hordern who sadly passed away in 2000.  
The event is held in conjunction with the International Puzzle Party which is an annual private collectors event. To learn more about IPP (International Puzzle Party) you can visit their website.

Edward Hordern had one of the world’s largest mechanical puzzle collections.  He was considered to be the world’s leading authority on sliding block puzzles, he wrote a number of books about mechanical puzzles and was especially renowned for his puzzle-solving abilities. 

In 1993, Hordern edited, corrected and privately published a Centenary Edition of the famous “Puzzles Old & New” by Professor Hoffmann, including photographs of many original puzzles of the 1890s, mostly from his own collection. 

Hordern’s family gave the puzzle collection, including the famed Hoffmann puzzles, to collector James Dalgety, founder of Pentangle Puzzles and curator of the Puzzle Museum.

IPP Exchange puzzles must meet strict criteria covering 1. innovative design 2. well made 3. well presented and 4. fun to solve.

IPP Exchange Puzzles must not be commercially available prior to presentation at the IPP Puzzle Exchange event so unless you attend these puzzle events you will not have these puzzles in your collection.

As well as designing and making his own puzzle to present at the in this year’s Edward Hordern Exchange event Brian also makes puzzles for other participants in the event. There are new designs from this year’s exchange and stocks of over 25 different puzzles available from previous years so there’s a wealth of new and unique designs to choose from.
