New Puzzle: Heart Case Released!

We have produced two kinds of trump card series puzzles; Diamond Case and Club Case, and it's time for the next puzzle, Heart Case.


Heart Case is literally a heart-shaped puzzle box. To me, it looks like a small heart-shaped cake that has chocolate coating on the top. The size is not so big, but there is a room which can contain a ring or a necklace.

This puzzle is not difficult to solve. once you have solved it, it's easy to open and close again. So, in a sense, I think this puzzle is practical, you can keep something inside.


I personally, like one with a geometrical shape on the mechanism inside of the puzzle. Oh, I want to say it, but I cannot! If you are interested in geometry, and you succeed to open the puzzle, you will know what I mean.

I think this puzzle can be used as a gift box when you give someone a gift, like a ring. The shape of this puzzle is good for gifting to someone you love.
Therefore, Juno and I made a special option.

There are small parts inside. One of them has a brand mark "Juno" as we always have done. However, if you are going to use the puzzle as a gift box, this name might cause misunderstanding, you know? The situation that we worried about is described on the four-panel comic as below.





The names in the comic have no meaning, I have just chosen them from my favorite movie "Batman."

Well, we have no intention to thwart your romance and cannot bear the responsibility even if you are jilted. So, if you want to use it as a gift box, please let us know when you order the puzzle. Maybe we can somehow help you.

The 5th Auction Results

We held an eBay auction and it ended on 18th May.
This time, we had put 2 puzzles that had subtle imperfections.
The sales results are as follows:

Quarted Box:  AUD355.00
Alcyone:           AUD44.44


The total amount was AUD399.44. As we had promised, we donated half of the sales (AUD200.00 )to AWLQ (Animal Welfare League Queensland) to support dogs and cats today. Here is the receipt of the donation.



We thought that there are cats in the facility of the AWLQ Beenleigh Rehoming Centre, but there are no cats. It's nice that there are not many cats that are waiting for a foster family, but other AWLQ facilities have lots of cats, dogs, birds and farm animals. We hope our donation will be helpful for them.
These are pictures of fluffy friends that welcomed us today.


We are going to hold the same type of auction when we get puzzles with subtle flaws. I think this is a good chance to get a puzzle at a low price.

Every time we start an auction, we will send a newsletter. If you are interested in auctions or our new puzzle information, please join the Pluredro newsletter!

We have put two puzzles up for auction on eBay!


We started selling Alcyon, Merope and Quartet Box last Monday, but there are two puzzles that we hesitate to sell as products left. Both puzzles are new and fully operational to play with.



As we have always done, we are going to donate half of the sales of this auction to the Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ).

Both puzzles start from $1.00 AUD!
We are looking forward to you joining our auction!



Alcyon


This is a second grade Alcyon which has obvious chipout on the pieces.






Quartet Box


The gears of Quartet Box is made with eight kinds of timber, but there is one left that cannot be completed with eight colours.
