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.
