Stand by cube 4
Designed by Gregory Benedetti and made by Eric Fuller
Difficult and challenging puzzle.
Shipped assembled for more safety. Perfect condition.
Price: €

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.
Price: €€

Brass baseball bat
Assemble the 6 pieces to make this beautiful sculpture.
It holds by itself. However I recommend to not put fragile objects close to it and to assemble/disassemble carefully and not on/close to fragile surfaces.
The puzzle is shipped disassembled.
A piece of art!!!

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: €

Two-tone Zero by Pelikan
Made by Pelikan and designed by Osanori Yamamoto. A nice and challenging puzzle
Price: €

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: €

Vinco XIV
An interlocking ball puzzle made by Vinco. More difficult than it looks. Will be shipped assembled like on the picture on the left or disassembled like on the picture on the right (upon choice of the buyer)
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 :)

Still a nice puzzle. And it contains real (full!) tea bags. Hence, it's a puzzle that smells good :-)
Price: €

Price: €€

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!!
Price: €

It seems to be the famous soma cube
Price: €

The lotus box
Designed and made by Kagen Sound. It is part of a trilogy of 3 boxes.

No doubt that this puzzles will gain value in the years to come. Stickman and Kagen's puzzles are really an investment when you want to part with them! But you can also keep it in your collection!!
This one will probably be worth around 5000 euros/dollars in 2 years at auction, like usually.
The puzzle is in perfect condition, sold with its original box as the below picture (don't worry, the lid is provided haha!)
