22nd Auction Results, new puzzles etc.

We held an eBay auction, and it successfully ended on 19th February. This time, we had put 2 kinds of puzzles in total 5 puzzles. The sales results are as follows:

The total sales amount was AUD $407.69, so we rounded it up and donated AUD $204.00 to Save The Bilby Fund.
Here is the receipt.

We have started selling our new puzzles, Splitted 12, and Puzzle Turbine on Saturday. Both puzzles are of a very high level, requiring many moves to remove the first piece from the assembled figure. Splitted 12 has unique level 17-22 solution and Puzzle Turbine has unique level 38 solution.

Recently I have heard the sad news that Koalas are listed as an endangered species on the Australian east coast. I wanted to help them and sowed several Eucalyptus seeds last month. Unfortunately, it seemed like I did something wrong, only one could germinate. This is a Eucalyptus tereticornis, commonly known as Blue Gum, one of Koala's favorite trees. Yes, the same as us, Koalas have their favorite tastes.

We know there is a type of puzzle that is the favorite of most puzzle lovers. We are producing new sequential discovery puzzles with great care now. It will still take some time to complete. So, please wait until we release our newsletter.

IPP Competition Results, PuzzleAuction, etc.

The Nob Yoshigahara Puzzle Design Competition held by the International Puzzle Party annually announced the results at 1:00 a.m. Brisbane time today. Honorably, our puzzle, "Sequential Discovery Cubed Box," won a double award, the Puzzlers' Award and the Jury Grand Prize.

We are privileged to receive the awards and most grateful to the puzzle lovers for giving us a chance. Thank you so much.

We will continue to do our best to produce puzzles that make people feel fun and give an essence of the Aha moment.

I was going to write about the auction this time that is going on at eBay now. So, here goes the main part.

Pluredro eBay Auction

There are two kinds of puzzles for a total of five puzzles. As usual, we will donate half of the total sales amount to Save The Bilby Fund. Probably, the Bilby is not as well known as the Kangaroo and Koala. They are also marsupial. Foxes and feral cats that initially didn't habitat in Australia prey on them, and they are close to extinction. We hope that this donation will help to protect them.

We will release the two new puzzles after finishing the auction. If you would like to get the product version, please wait till 19th February.

We know there are lots of people who look forward to the next SD puzzle. We have been working hard to produce the SD puzzle, but it still takes significant time to complete. Sometimes we are asked when it will be complete, but we are unsure. We cannot say when it will become available until the very last moment of production.

Please look forward to it.
