Six of One, Half a Dozen of Another burr

Sold out 2013 Limited Edition Set of 45.
Original Price: AU$230.00
One of these puzzles resold at Haubrich Auction in September 2018 for Euro 167.00 (about AU$ 270.00)

Designed by Junichi Yananose for the IPP33 Puzzle Design Competition and made by Junichi and Brian @ Mr Puzzle. The burr is a 12 piece unique solution level 13-1-4-1-1-2. Junichi describes it as challenging but not too difficult; he considers it solvable without a computer.

Junichi took up the challenge that many designers may have already faced to make a puzzle where every “piece” of the burr is actually two pieces. So what looks on the outside like a standard six piece burr is very much more complicated. “Don’t judge a book by its cover” really does apply here!

You will notice some magnets are used in the puzzle. This is to enhance the feeling in your hands. Theoretically, they are not necessary for the puzzle to work.

The puzzle is made from Western Australian Jarrah and enhanced with the routing on the ends of each piece you’ve come to know as the signature of Mr Puzzle.

The burr is made in a smaller format than the one submitted for the Design Competition entry.

Size: 90mm x 90mm x 90mm made from 30mm x 30mm stock
