Small Box Two (Aha Box) was Allan Boardman's IPP exchange puzzle in 2004. Allan describes it as "designed to lure your non-puzzler friends into "our" world." Seemingly solid and impenetrable, Aha Box gives very few clues upon handling. A solution does exist, and it's quite tricky to discover. Sturdy, pocket-sized, and with a surprising amount of usable space inside, Aha Box is a great puzzle to share with friends and non-puzzlers.

We first produced Aha Box in wood in October 2019. Because of its popularity and approachability, we had two subsequent wood versions in October 2021 and then December 2021, but this is the first time we've released it in metal. Made of CNC-machined aluminum with a lovely and pleasant-to-handle sandblasted and anodized finish, we added laser-cut zebrawood veneer inlays to the sides to make it stand out in your collection. The result has the same impervious feel as our previous versions, with a new retrofuturistic look.

Aha Box ships in an unsolved configuration.

Handling Metal Puzzles
All metals tarnish over time. Residual oil and salt from handling speed up the process and may leave undesirable fingerprints. Occasional use of our Metal Puzzle Polishing Kit with a coat of Renaissance Wax will keep your metal puzzles in tip-top shape!
