Hi Everybody,

Another review posted, this time for a hidden mechanism puzzle, the BIC #2 by Jerry Loo. The puzzle is basically a cylinder where you have to free a ball bearing that's trapped inside. For that, however, you need to figure out how the inner mechanism works, with no real clues other than hearing what's going on inside. You can read the review here.
