Description

Kevin Sadler had this to say about it:

“I absolutely love this particular subgroup of the interlocking/caged burr puzzle. A lot of the high piece number caged burrs can be extremely difficult and quite a few have completely beaten me. There are a small group consisting of a frame with just 4 burrsticks sitting inside that I really enjoy the process of exploration and disassembly. The reassembly is a challenge but definitely possible with such a low number of pieces. The master of this type is Osanori Yamamoto who began my love of these with the incredible Galaxy, Galaxy Z and Mysterious Galaxy puzzles. This kind of puzzle can be expanded to make them more difficult and maybe slightly more interesting (as Dan Fast did with the Stir the Coffee puzzle in the last release. Osanori has designed a lovely little challenge here which Jakub and Jaroslav have brought into the world beautifully using Jatoba and Wenge. The fit is perfect and the exploration is great fun. There are quite a few short blind ends and it’s possible to go in a loop. I got stuck at one point and could not find the critical move – everything is visible as you progress but due to the ends being at 90º to each other I found my moves were easily blocked. After a couple of evenings of play I suddenly found my hidden move and I was able to take out the first piece. Having disassembled it, I scrambled the pieces and attempted reassembly and really struggled. I did manage to work out what went where and in what order but the hidden move that I had found fro the disassembly was also hidden on the way back to the beginning. Brilliant puzzle which is just the right level of difficulty and beautifully made.”

Burrfection

Lovely 4 piece burr with a cage. Not overly challenging, but has some hidden movements that will keep you puzzled longer than some linear burrs. Very interesting way to design the burr sticks, introducing ends that are not parallel to eachother like most burrs, creating more restriction in movements. Great for intermediate burr enthusiasts as it won’t keep you stumped for days, but still requires focus on the orientation of pieces to reassemble the puzzle correctly. I recommend this for anyone wanting a new fun burr for their collection!
