The Parallel Dimensions has a bit of everything. Its got 3 large rings, 1 piece with a closed loop at each end, 2 “U” shaped pieces, with closed loops at each end, a wooden ball, a fairly large wooden cube, and a cord which passes through the ball and the cube as well as entwined around the two “U” shaped pieces and one of the rings. The object is to remove that ring. It looks a little intimidating, and for good reason; it is not simple and has a Difficulty of 10 out of 10. As with other [Read More...]
It’s not everyday that I have the pleasure of reviewing a puzzle from someone that I truly respect and has been an inspiration when it comes to collecting puzzles. I remember back in 2008, when I first started to “gather” all these magnificent objects, looking at her collection in awe. I’m, of course, talking about miss puzzles, Roxanne Wong.
Her first venture into the world of puzzle design debuted last year with the Pionir Pyramid, which was her exchange puzzle at the IPP 32 in Washington D.C. With the help of Mr. Fok, the manufacturing was entrusted to [Read More...]

In my never-ending quest to acquire all of Jean Claude Constantin‘s designs, I recently got from PuzzleMaster the Centrale puzzle. I was very curious about this design, mainly because I already had two puzzles from Robrecht Louage that have this same concept – Free a coin that’s trapped in a maze.
Centrale is a relatively small puzzle, measuring only 8.9 x 5.7cm (3.5″ x 2.2″) and, just like the designs from Robrecht, there’s a sliding platform with a 5 cent euro coin that needs to be placed under the larger cut-out circle in order to free [Read More...]
Knight Moves comes from Ken Wessen. (Not to be confused with Night Moves, the song by Bob Seger) If you’re familiar with the famous Knight’s Tour problem, you’ll like this – it’s different.

Hana Yama make an excellent collection of cast puzzles. Their puzzles are exceptionally well made, a real challenge to solve, are immediate attention grabbers, beautiful to look at and feel great in the hand.
When you pick it up, it seems so loosely connected together; that one thinks it should fall apart. As you play with it, it will remind you of a set of dentures rattleing in a blizzard.
