I never thought of it, actually.
It's just a click away, but if any moderator thinks it can be done or helpful, I won't mind.

Hi Everybody,

It's been a while since I posted here. I had some things to deal with, but they're all now sorted out.

The good news is that I have a new review up on my Blog. If you like Assembly puzzles, then these ones are definitely for you. They're a set of six wooden boxes beautifully made in a dice pattern.

Enjoy the Reading :wink:

Hi Everybody,

I have yet another review this week, and probably not the last one either. This is for the Magna Cube, like a Soma Cube, but instead with eight pieces and also with magnets. It's a nice little addition to the genre of assembly puzzles. Review here.

Hi Everybody,

Third review of the week on my blog. If any of you remember, I had the Dael 'O Ring - Easy Yellow reviewed a year ago. Now I got two new colors or levels reviewed, the Simple Orange and the Silly Green. Review here.

I have two duplicates, one of each color (orange and green), so if anyone's interested, let me know through PM. This is also in the Marketplace section of the forum.

Enjoy the Reading :wink:

I should change the topic's name to daily reviews instead of weekly, but it won't always be like this, so don't get used to it... :lol: :lol:

Hi Everybody,

The last review of the week is published on my blog. I know, tomorrow is Friday and why not complete the week with 5 reviews. Well, writing, taking photos, and actually solving puzzles takes some work and I need time to relax as well :lol: :lol: . Anyway, the new review is about the Culica, a new puzzle/game that let's you play many games and puzzles (solo or multi-player), with just a cube and 84 colored pegs, distributed in 4 different colors. You play games by placing the pegs onto the cube's 54 slots and 6 faces. The game is very interesting and the fact that many games can be played gives it more variety and a lasting appeal. Here's the link.

Enjoy the Reading :wink:

Hi Oli,

Well, not being a married man helps a lot. I can dedicate all my free time to the puzzles. Also, as you may already know, I've been absent from the reviews from June to November last year and when I returned, I started to accumulate all these great puzzles that deserved a review. And finally, I think it's about momentum as well. Before my long break, I had about a review per week and sometimes I would think, "why not a new review this week? Humm... I already wrote one, that's too much work". But now, I really love to write and it just comes naturally. After I publish a new review, I'm already thinking and working on a new one :P

Cheers :wink:
Gabriel

Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not complaining! When it comes to puzzles I love reading the thoughts of others. I read all of the puzzle blogs out there on a daily basis, and have been following (and enjoying) yours for quite some time now. :)

I hope you keep them coming!

Thanks Oli :wink:
I understand you completely. I also love all puzzle related stuff and enjoy reading about it as well. By the way, nice work you're doing on the Puzzle Place. I go there often and love to see the puzzle galleries :D

Cheers,
Gabriel

Hi Everybody,

New review on my blog. This is for Robrecht Louage's 4 Steps Visible Lock. For regular IPP attendees this is probably old news, but for those who aren't so familiar with this, the puzzle was awarded the Jury Grand Prize at last year's IPP Design Competition. A fantastic puzzle. Here's the link.

Enjoy the Reading :wink:

Gabriel

Hi Everybody,

The review for today is a serious assembly challenge. The Shipper's Dilemma by John Horton Conway and manufactured by Creative Crafthouse is a very nice puzzle for any experienced puzzler. To read the review, click this link.

Enjoy the Reading :wink:

Gabriel
