Well... after the package with a couple of hundred puzzles arrived,
I had the luck to play with many interesting new pieces. As usual,
there were puzzles worth playing with, and puzzles which.. ahem...

On the top left, is the "Laby Box", a very interesting labyrinth/sliding puzzle!
On the right of "Laby Box", is "the drunken dancing Fraulein", which is essentially
a trick box. On the right of this puzzle is the "Tornado", which made me nuts

"Crazy Bottles", a puzzle based on the old jug and bottle problems (interestingly,
for a long time, I had a completely different way of materialising this concept!).
The non-regular hexagon on the left is "Triple Play", which employs one of the
most ingenious interlocking (while simple) combinations I had seen. Below the
"Tornado" is the "Magnetic Madness", which is a dexterity puzzle based on magnets,
but it is so fun, that kept me laughing all the time. The tiny octagonal colorful puzzle
on the right is the "Air", a marvelous construction, made of four identical pieces.
At the bottom left, there is the "Four to Square", one of the most challenging fitting-
to-frame-pieces puzzle I had ever played with. On its left, there is the Japanese
"Slide Out" (there are more "Slide Out" variations, but this was by far my favourite).
Finally, on the left of the "Slide Out" is the "What is the time. a fine clock-like matching
