Change in Release DayWe’ve switched from Friday to Wednesday releases! This was done to improve our shipping speed. Items listed are ready to go, and fulfillment will begin at 3:01 on the date of the update. Our goal is to ship all orders by the end of the week.
We have now instituted a production cutoff the Friday before our Wednesday release. Moving forward, all items will be finished, packed, and ready to go when the update posts.
As a result of that change we were only able to complete three puzzles for this release. October is looking better, since we no longer have a backlog to process. DDD Burr Set, Blah Box and Reversible Mazes have all been pushed to the next release on November 4th.
We apologize for delays in the past and are looking forward to improved service in the future.

Six Slabs Packing Puzzle
|MATERIAL:||Quilted Maple, Wenge|
Six Slabs is a unique packing puzzle reminiscent of the Hexahedroom design. Six uniform "slabs" must be packed into the box, which has three openings in a non-symmetrical pattern. This is complicated by two fixed blocks inside the box. With a level 22.214.171.124.2.3 solution, Six Slabs is non-trivial to solve.
Approximately 70 copies were made; ships disassembled.
Puzzler's Cage Interlocking Puzzle
|DESIGNER:||Junichi Yananose (Juno)|
|MATERIAL:||Bubinga, Schedua, Black Palm|
Are you ready? No. You're not ready. This puzzle is a BEAST.
BonBon Packing Puzzle
|MATERIAL:||Butternut and Morado|
|SIZE:||3.7" x 3" x 2"|
The "BonBon" packing puzzle by Frederic Boucher is just a ton of fun. The set of five tetrominos must be fully inserted in the rectangular box, and there is only one very specific way to do it. The solution requires well over a dozen correct moves, including rotations.
