Ship in a bottle
Designed by Goh Pit Khiam and made by Tom Lensch
A nice sliding puzzle. You have to free the pieces, turn them on the opposite side and make a ship that looks going to the other direction. Each piece have a drawing on each side. So obviously you will have to turn the pieces to solve the puzzle. A lot of moves are required.

You can put your fingers inside the puzzle which helps to move the pieces, so no dexterity involved! ;)

Saifu box by Jesse Born
A nice looking puzzle that hides a devilish mechanism.
Please note that the orientation of the magnet on the top of the box is faulty. I mean you cannot close completely the lid as the magnet is positionned on the wrong side.
However this does not provide to solve the puzzle. The magnet has nothing to do with the solution.

Assemble the 6 pieces to make this beautiful sculpture.

A piece of art!!!
Price: €

Designed by Ken Irvine
Trifecta was Ken's entry for the 2015 IPP design competition. It's a lot of fun, with two different goals: three copies of three different types of pieces assemble to form the given configuration, both with and without the optional three-cube bonus piece. There is a fair amount of confusing movement with disassembly, and reassembly is moderately difficult but a lot of fun
Price: €

Prototype of the Dorstorm puzzle
The Dorstorm puzzle was invented long time ago and made recently by Robrech Louage for the ipp exchange in San Diego (2018). This prototype is not fully functional in the way that it's easily solved (compared to the final version) and it's missing a round plate on both side of the puzzle. So this is more a collector item, especially if you have the final version. You can compare both version. Maybe that may help you understand how to solve the final version. And if you don't have the final version, you can still buy this prototype and make the additional piece to have a fully functional puzzle.
Price: €

Price: €

Orb by Sonic Game
This is the extreme version of the orb!! Perfect condition.
Shipped with its original leather box and carton box. The puzzle has already been registered. The key has been removed. I still need to find it. Anyway it does not really matter if you don't participate (and I am sure you won't because it's too time consuming, too difficult and you have very little chance to make any progress haha) in the adventure. So if you're just a puzzle player/collector, you should be fine :)

4M packing
Designed by Iwahiro and crafted by Brian Menold, the goal is to put the 4M shape pieces inside the box so that the lid can close the box flat.
The lid is somewhat not perfectly cut (proof of handmade work!). So there is a difference of "levelling".
However, this does not provide at all to solve the puzzle. It's just purely aesthetic. This is a very good puzzle, don't miss it!!
