3 New Puzzles on Sale!

We have started selling our three new puzzles!

One of the three is a trick opening puzzle box and we named it Quartet Box. You will be able to know why we named it "Quartet" if you play with it.
The other two puzzles are 6-piece interlocking burr puzzles, but they are non-orthogonal. The shape of these two look like a shining star, so we took names from the stars in the Pleiades star clusters, Alcyon and Merope.
Please take a look at each puzzle's details on our online shop pages.

While making three puzzles, some puzzles that we hesitate to sell as products remain.
The four gears of the production version of Quartet Box is made with eight kinds of timber, but there is one left that cannot be completed with eight colours.
There is also a second grade Alcyon which has obvious chipout on the pieces. Both of them can be played with no problem.

After a while, we are going to put them on eBay auction. As we have always done, we are going to donate half of the sales of this auction to the Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ). According to AWLQ, they maintained zero euthanasia by donation last year. We hope our little donation will be a help for them.

We will let you know about the auction on this blog and by our newsletter. If you have not registered for our newsletter, please take a look at the bottom left of our shop website.
