The excellent 4L puzzle is back by popular demand! This is one of my favorite puzzles. 4L was awarded an Honorable Mention at IPP 2015 and 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 extremely creative and devious.
87 copies, each signed and dated, were made for this release. This puzzle is shipped disassembled.

There's a good reason this has been released 3 times: It's simply one of the best packing puzzles out there. I never had a chance to buy one of the previously releases and had been looking for one of these at auction, so I was thrilled when Eric announced a new release. The fact that this new release has such a gorgeous combination of woods with the Zebra and Sapele was just icing on the cake.
I was curious how four little pieces could stump people for so long, but man this is a really clever puzzle. And the zebrawood is beautiful.
Great puzzle that will push your limits and test your resolve until you reach AH HA moment!! I’m the smartest man alive!!!! I’ve solved it many more times just for shear joy!!
