Strong Fortress metal interlocking puzzle

Don't be fooled into thinking this is some kind of standard metal interlocking burr. It's not. The shapes are very strange and can only be made with metal.

Trilateral triangle heavy metal burr

A new three-piece interlocking burr on a triangular grid. This black anodised piece looks sinister and somehow seems menacing. But it's actually a very doable burr puzzle and makes a fascinating and engaging executive desk piece.  It moves enough to make it interesting but definitely won't just fall apart easily.

Cross-Hatch 4 piece metal burr

Four very unusual pieces make this burr puzzle. It might prove quite hard because even though I only see five steps on the solution sheet It looks like more than one piece moves in each step. Why not give it a go?

Description

A selection of 3 anodised aluminium puzzles in the series from Zoyo.

Each puzzle is in it’s own nicely presented clear lid metal tin with a solution inside. The puzzles sit inside the tin in a cut out rubber surround to prevent scratching. Really lovely to give as a gift.

The three puzzles in the set are:  The Strong Fortress interlocking metal puzzle (green anodised aluminium)  Trilateral Triangle take apart puzzles (black anodised aluminium) and Cross Hatch 4 piece metal burr (bright blue anodised aluminium). Note: some of these puzzles have been in previously sold sets from 2018 & 2019 which are no longer available due to stock shortages. Please double check if you have purchased a Zoyo set of metal puzzles before.

STRONG FORTRESS interlocking metal puzzle

The puzzle has four pieces to take apart and fit back together. But one of those pieces is a single cylinder. That makes the other three pieces very complicated shapes indeed.

It might look like a standard burr puzzle but you’ll quickly find that making it in metal makes the puzzle very robust.  It has allowed the inventor to use those very strange shapes to make a very different interesting take on an interlocking puzzle.

Brian at Mr Puzzle has played with it and it reminds him a little of Stewart Coffin’s 3 piece block puzzle but not quite as hard as that and obviously a different outer shape; but the concept of the use of unusual shapes of pieces that are difficult to visualise to interlock and assemble. We also have a four piece version of a similar Stewart Coffin interlocking design called Multigrain made in wood here at Mr Puzzle.

The only hint we’re prepared to give about this puzzle is that it will not be able to be solved in the computer program BurrTools.

This puzzle is a brand new design and patented by Zoyo (Hangzhou) Crafts & Gifts. Collect 3 different puzzles in the series.

The puzzle is made from green anodised aluminium with a shiny silver aluminium cylinder. Size:  48mm x 48mm x 48mm

TRILATERAL TRIANGLE heavy metal burr

Collectors are loving metal puzzles these days and this triangular metal burr is one to add to your collection. It has three identical pieces interlocked to make a triangular shape.

This is a level 4.2 burr but quite different from other burrs we usually see. The puzzle definitely lends itself to metal, heavy metal, rather than wood because of the odd shapes and angles.

For puzzle collectors and non-puzzlers alike this one has something to offer. This black anodised piece looks pretty menacing but it’s actually a very doable burr puzzle and makes a fascinating and engaging executive desk piece It moves enough to make it interesting but definitely won’t just fall apart easily.

Brian (aka Mr Puzzle) didn’t take too long to find the solution but fair to say but he does admit that his first thoughts on how it would work were totally wrong. When you first start playing with the puzzle pieces do move but it really takes a bit of thought to work out how they might separate.

This puzzle is heavy and you should be careful not to drop it because it will damage something; avoid playing with it on your best wooden dining room table for sure!

The puzzle is made from black anodised aluminium.

Size: Triangular sides are 70mm long. Width 43mm Thickness of pieces is 7mm

CROSS-HATCH 4 piece metal burr

This metal interlocked burr has four unusual shaped pieces that interlock to make a shape like a cross-hatch or hashtag or the number symbol #.

The puzzle definitely lends itself to metal, heavy metal, rather than wood because of the odd shapes and angles would be difficult to make strong enough to interlock the way they do. With this type of puzzle, it’s taken for granted (unless otherwise stated) that no force is required to do the puzzle and that’s still true here but with this one it would be difficult to break anyway!

This bright blue anodised pieces are very attractive and the shape lends itself to a modern theme. Great for the desk of that person who’s hooked on Twitter and other social media! It can move quite a lot without coming apart. It won’t just fall apart by mistake that’s for sure.

This puzzle is heavy and you should be careful not to drop it because it will damage something; avoid playing with it on your best wooden dining room table for sure!

The puzzle is made from blue anodised aluminium. It has been stamped rather than individually machined the way some of the more expensive collectible metal puzzles are. But it looks pretty good and the value is there at this price.

Size: 50mm x 50mm x 50mm Thickness of pieces is 8mm
