I already had a good book on the subject, “The One, the Only, The Original Jigsaw Puzzle Book” by Francene and Louis Sabin, 1977.It was and still is a very good book. While obviously, some of the same things are covered, there is still enough that i.e. different to make it worthwhile as a companion to this new jigsaw book.

Cubic Trisection

This puzzle was first shown to George Miller by Robert Reid, demonstrating all the different ways a cube could be trisected by three equal parts.  It’s quite an interesting puzzle and I’m sure it will stump a lot of people.

The Cast Box is a real hands on mechanical puzzle, dealing with a square or cube and a circle or ring.

How to Solve the Geranium Puzzle

I can hardly understand what to do on this puzzle.  I have tried variations of this and got no where.  This is a tough puzzle as far as I’m concerned.  I’m glad someone understands it.

Gear Shift

Gear Shift

Back in 2009, Oskar van Deventer was responsible for inventing a new type of puzzle that would forever change the landscape of Twisty Puzzles. This new and revolutionary type of puzzle featured gears instead of rotating faces and was simply called Gear Cube. Since then, we’ve seen a plethora of different Twisty Puzzles with gears being launched, some by Oskar himself, while others were designed by fans of the concept. Some of these even took the concept to the next level by making it much harder than the original. The Twisty Puzzle I have here today for review is another [Read More...]
