 Post subject: Puzzles I bought in Rennes

I have an opportunity to visit Rennes, Capital City of Bretagne. As a puzzle collector I always look for new (or old) puzzles.
I found Rubik's Maze on the dusty top shelve, where I have seen them first in 1996. Probably, nobody was keen to by them, since 3 mazes still were here. I have bought two, leaving one on the shelf.
Another puzzle named "Lutica" or "Lotica" is available in less limited quantity. It's idea: two intersecting circles, 13 pieces at all, 3 of them in common area; one circle could be turned by 90, 180, 270, another - only by 180 degrees; not very hard to solve - I solved it first without using paper and formulas. But, may be I was lucky.

Actually that puzzle is called Turn'Push, and I think Lotica is the name of the manufacturer. I have just finished a web page about it which I will add to my site soon. It is actually equivalent to the puzzle you get if you only allow F and R2 moves on a Rubik's cube.

Lotica is a color variation of the Turn & Push. Since only the colours (not parts of a picture) distinguish the pieces, it is a little bit simpler.
Lotica is a name of the puzzle without any doubt.
