The "BonBon" packing puzzle by Frederic Boucher is just a ton of fun. The set of five tetrominos must be fully inserted in the rectangular box, and there is only one very specific way to do it. The solution requires well over a dozen correct moves, including rotations.

What and incredible puzzle. Probably my top 5 packers! The top notch craftsmanship is also what you would expect from CD.
I love packing puzzles for their simplicity and satisfaction. This one exceeded my expectations. I fiddled with it for hours, half paying attention while working. I thought that would get it solved and I would put it on a shelf with a satisfied nod. Not to be! I had to give it some focus and then take a few days of picking it up, putting it down, and picking it up again later, to finally make some progress. Trial and error will not do the trick here, it takes some thought and logic to work out the right sequence and moves to solve this beauty. Once I got close, I knew I was on to something and had to really think to get the final moves worked out. When I did, I let out a triumphant roar (I admit, it was surprising to everyone else in the room). Great solution, lots of fun to work towards, and very satisfying to click the last piece in place!!! A solid piece of work, CD, thank you!
I’m really grateful for the re-release of this puzzle, as I’ve regretted passing on the first release, after I’d borrowed and played with a friend’s copy. Definitely a must have and the craftsmanship can’t be beat!
