Treasure Burr (designed by Primitivo Ramos) Moves 20.8.2 for the pirates only the treasure adds another 20+ moves.  ships partially assembled

Who doesn’t like Pirates! When Primitivo sent me this design along with his idea of the pirate angle, I loved it! At his suggestion I made the treasure out of metal. The Gold, Silver and Copper bars are really only Brass, Aluminum and Copper but it took a few days to give them a bit of a shine to give them the appearance of the real thing. Consequently this puzzle is heavy (1lb 6oz) The puzzle ships with the three pirates in the chest as pictured on the right. Your challenge is to first remove the pirates and then insert them back into the chest along with the 7 metal bars. The chest is also studded with brass pins around the top and bottom bands of walnut. This puzzle took a while to make and required much more material than just the wood. 3” x 3” x 3” (7.6cm x 7.6cm x 7.6cm)

Restricted Soma Reborn (this idea was given to me by Mr. C. M. Huang)

Three puzzles in one! This very clever variation on the Restricted Soma comes with 3 interchangeable lids resulting in three separate challenges. And boy are they challenging. A small hole in the side of the box is to aid you in some of the maneuvering necessary to complete this challenge. The 3 acrylic lids each slide into the top of the box and lock into place. I wanted to allow this to work without any movable locking mechanism. So after a great deal of thought I used acrylic for the tops and it flexes enough to snap into place when fully inserted.  These solutions are very challenging and it is a must for every puzzle collector. 3” x 3” x 2.75” (7.6cm x 7.6cm x 7.0cm)

Sonneveld’s Illegal Burr (designed by Dic Sonneveld) Moves 6.2.2

Much like Sonneveld’s Cubed Burr this puzzle is more difficult than it appears. The “Illegal” moves necessary is I imagine how it got it’s name. These where rather difficult to construct since the illegal moves required some extra tricky fitting to work properly. Not recommended for high humidity locations. 2.5” x 2.5” x 2.5” (6.4cm x 6.4cm x 6.4cm)

Rotpack 1 and 2 (designed by Gregory Benedetti) Moves 1-8 and 2-7

Here you get 2 for the price of one!  These two rotational cube puzzles are a great introduction to this type of puzzle. They are not too difficult but offer a nice challenge if you don’t try rotational cubes often. I figured that they should come as a set, so you get both puzzles for this price.  2.125” x 2.125” x 2.125” (5.4cm x 5.4cm x 5.4cm)

Ka’apuni (designed by Jos Bergmans) Moves 1.5.4.4

I think that by now I have made most of Jos’ rotational cubes but I always like it when there are multiple rotations and this one had eluded me.  With only 5 pieces it would appear not too difficult. But several that I handed it to had trouble even with the first piece! Now, it is not that difficult but as with all rotational cubes it requires a different way of looking at it. 2.25” x 2.25” x 2.25” (5.7cm x 5.7cm x 5.7cm)

A Variation on Laszlo Molnar’s Twisted Sisters named 11 Twisted Sisters (designed by Tzy Hung Chein) Make symmetric shapes

The idea behind these three simple pieces is to make a symmetrical shape using any 2 pieces. A few of these are quite easy to find and others are very difficult. Several I have not yet found as I denied myself the satisfaction of checking the BT file. This puzzle went through several iterations and there is another version with an additional piece I may make in the future. (Cube size .5625”)
