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.

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.
