Back by popular demand, 4L is one of our favorite designs. This diabolical packing puzzle seems simple, yet the solution is anything but - 4L is FAR trickier than it looks. The goal is to pack the four L-shaped pieces into a very simple box. There are two different types of L pieces (fat and thin) and several possible configurations. The solution is creative and devious and earned Mr. Hashimoto an honorable mention at IPP 2015,
95 copies, each signed and dated, were made for this release. This puzzle is shipped disassembled.
Puzzle Mad wrote an excellent blog review of this packing puzzle.
Our work is handcrafted to very precise tolerances and must be kept within the range of 40-60% relative humidity at all times. Failure to do so may cause inoperability or permanent damage.
Definitely one of my all time favorites. No complicated pieces, just 4 simple shapes. And yet the solution is surprisingly difficult to find and has a fantastic aha-moment. The production quality makes this puzzle really satisfying to play with, everything fits perfectly and is made from beautiful wood.
I like these creative ideas of Cubicdissection, thank you to the designer and Cubicdissection team!
Only 4 L shaped pieces (obviously) but so difficult. But no so difficult it becomes over frustrating. And as always beautifully crafted. Definitely a keeper.
