AUD $500.00USD $

Stock Update 24th March 2020. Unfortunately, I have no current information from Wil about when this puzzle will be made. It is unlikely to be in 2020. 

The goal is to take the EGG apart into two pieces; some might say “break” the egg. But to do it you don’t need to break anything. No force, no banging, no magnets.

The goal is to take the EGG apart into two pieces; some might say “break” the egg. But to do it you don’t need to break anything. No force, no banging, no magnets.

Start with the egg standing on it’s end. From there you will need to discover the series of moves in order than can unlock the mechanism holding the two halves of the EGG together. With each discovery there is just enough feedback for you to progress to the next challenge; but not too much. This is a very difficult puzzle.

Size: 95mm tall and 72mm round.

The puzzle is very solidly made from anodised pink aluminium with a matt texture and the engineering of parts both inside and out is of excellent quality. 

The last time we had this puzzle was back in early 2017. That batch was Wil’s original Limited Edition numbered puzzles. This batch will be similar in that they are numbered and have Wil’s signature on the puzzle. The number that you see in this photo is a random number and not the actual number you will receive. I do not know what numbers I will get from Wil.

Wil is a true puzzle solver and has the philosophical view that puzzles should not come with solution sheets. So, if you purchase one of these puzzles there will be no solution supplied.

The history of the EGG (written by Wil):

Wil Strijbos original egg
See the picture I took when I visited James Dalgety in December 2011. The date on the bottom from the EGG says 1986, so it is now at least 28 years ago that I created this EGG.

This first creation will be also in the collection from Jerry Slocum, Dick Hess and in some other collections.  Maximum production at that time was less then ten. In the 90tys last century a company tried to produce the EGG. The result at the end was a broken EGG, too difficult to produce they told me. So when I saw my EGG again in the collection from James Dalgety I decided to give it a try. See the result here. I’m very proud of the result and I hope you will enjoy playing with it. I’m sure it will be a nice addition to your puzzle collection.

    Words cannot describe
    Its been 1 year since i first watched the youtube video of Lotus. This is where it all started for me in this puzzle world, I watched the Lotus video and had to have this puzzle, only to find out, that it was unavailable virtually everywhere. At this time I knew nothing about puzzles. I dove into this incredible world of puzzles and realized this would cost me an incredible amount of time and money in this highly addictive and obsessive hobby. But puzzles have brought me so much joy, and i share them with all my friends and family, so that they can experience the little bit of euphoria, that I feel when I solve a puzzle. When I received the Lotus, it was like a breath of fresh air, the high quality, the sounds it made, the amazing design and solve, the feeling surreal, the lotus will always be near and dear to me, this is where it all began for me.
    Thank you Wil Strijbos for your valued work that you share with us all, delivering your brilliant work for us to enjoy.
    Your biggest fan.
