Small Box Two - "Aha Box" This design was Alan Boardman's IPP exchange puzzle in 2004. He describes it as "Designed to lure your non-puzzler friends into "our" world." It gives very few clues upon handling...it seems to be solid, with no way to open it. A solution does exist, and it's quite tricky to discover. Sturdy and pocket sized, a great puzzle to share with friends and non-puzzlers. This little box also has a surprisingly useful amount of space inside!
Construction of this puzzle is very precise, with a solid fit and feel. The Zebrawood contrasts beautifully with the maple...this little guy is just begging to be picked up and played with!

Quality-wise top notch as always. I am rating it "only" 3 stars as it took me less than a minute to solve and hence the relation of puzzling time and price were not right for me personally on this one. On the other hand I heard and read that there are quite a lot of puzzlers who struggled with it for days/weeks.
We were lucky to grab the Aha Box as a last-minute buy during the Cyber Monday sale. We're so happy we did! The craftsmanship, as always, is superb. And it has to be to make such a gorgeous box at this tiny size! The other reviews suggest we're missing a simple revelation to get this thing open--which in itself should be a clue. But so far, we haven't had that epiphany yet!
You can only truly understand the aha box until you have solved it. Took me a bit of time to solve but it was worth it. It's sitting next to my other puzzle boxes looking pretty.
