Designed and first released at IPP in 2009, Surround is closely related to the 3/4/5 cubes designs by Ichiro. In this case, six pieces must be used to surround the solid cube in such a way that is self-supporting. Two solutions using magnets are possible, with another "rule-breaker" solution that does not use magnets and covers the cube completely! The finished shape is pleasingly symmetrical and displays well.
69 copies in made for sale, each signed and dated. 8 copies in Walnut & Maple, 11 copies in Padauk & Tamerindo, 50 copies in Canary & Patagonian Rosewood were made for this release. This puzzle is shipped disassembled.

Firstly, what a beautifully crafted puzzle. Wood was especially nice and the puzzle although a simple box with different pieces was quite tricky to put together. Thank you for all of your hard work Eric!
I love playing with the small magnetic pieces of this recent series, and this one is easily the prettiest one! The dark wenge surrounding the golden yellowheart cube in a symmetric shape looks really stunning.
Once again a fantastic purchasing experience. You gotta love Eric. He’s the captain of his ship.
