At Mr Puzzle we made two puzzles designed by George Sicherman for this year’s IPP39 held in Kanazawa, Japan. The Edward Hordern puzzle exchange event is…
Sweta Cross – Wil Strijbos
At first this one might trick you into thinking you know it. Wil already designed an Aluminium Cross before right?
Don’t be fooled.
Wil came up with the first version of the Sweta Cross in September 2015. It’s internal workings are nothing like the Aluminum Cross.
The next step was to create this version of the puzzle. Something to challenge more seasoned puzzlers. It’s possibly more closely related to our Don’t Get Cross puzzle but with many, many more twists and turns and a hell of a lot of little ball bearings that I’m happy to say can’t fall out at any point but do get in the way when you’re trying to solve it!
