Hi Everybody,

Today's review is for a special puzzle, the Moeraki 4. This is quite a beautiful puzzle and great fun to play with. It's a sliding puzzle with three intersecting rings, much like the Hungarian Rings with two rings, but also much bigger. Here's the link to read more about it.

Enjoy the Reading :wink:

Gabriel


Hello

I do agree with your reviews about Moeraki's number 3 and 4. They are amazingly packed, great acrilic box, great presentation as a whole, including PC CdRom version and beads that really shiny and turns very smoothly, it is really a gorgeous puzzle, easy to solve and as you said a bargain considering the quality and the price.

Congratulations on your blog and reviews, they are very organized and well prepared

kind regards
Claudio

Obrigado, Claudio!
Fico feliz por ter gostado :wink:

Indeed, these are two great puzzles. Some of the most beautiful in my collection. It's a shame they didn't release the other versions in plastic as well. Maybe in the near future, who knows...

Thanks for your kind words about the blog :D

Puzzle Regards,
Gabriel

Hi Everybody,

This is the second "Deal of the Week" in partnership with Sloyd.fi. You can get a 15% discount on the Switch Box puzzle when you mention my blog on your order.

The Switch Box is a variation of the Soma Cube, except with a couple more pieces. The object is to remove one light and one dark piece from the puzzle. When you solve it, disassemble it and remove another light and dark piece, building another cube from the remaining pieces. There are many different puzzles you can create this way. Read my review here.

Enjoy the Reading :wink:

Hi Everybody,

Today I bring you two reviews:

The first is for Oskar's Planets, a fascinating puzzle, but quite hard to solve.
The second is for Constantin's 2 Loops. This one, although classified as a level 8/10 is actually very easy to solve. It's a nice optical illusion, though.

Hi Jared,

I don't have that puzzle, but as a Packing puzzle and Kadon fan I can easily recommend any puzzle from them. The hard part for me is choosing...

I have the Trifolia and Cubits from Kadon and they're among my favorite puzzles in my collection. I have previously reviewed them, if you fancy a read :wink:

Hi Everybody,

Today, I posted a review for an unusual packing puzzle from Constantin, the Floor. It consists of 7 pentagon-shaped pieces with two layers. The second layer shows three spikes placed in different arrangements in each piece. Take a look at it here.

Hi Everybody,

Today I have reviewed the Snow Mystery, probably already known by most Twisty fans. It's a simple puzzle to solve but has a very original design and worth a try. Read my review here.

Hi Everybody,

Today's review is for an old Hidden Maze puzzle, the Blind Labyrinth, first introduced back in 1983. This puzzle is different from other puzzles in the same category, since you start with two pieces, a cylinder and a shaft, and this way you can first study the maze before attempting to solve it. It can still be tricky though. Click here for more details.

Deal of the Week: This week, you can get 15% off when you order the Blind Labyrinth puzzle from Sloyd. You just need to mention the name of my blog when you place your order. Offer valid until June 21.

Enjoy the Reading :wink:

Gabriel
