Lattice puzzle

Lattice puzzle is a puzzle designed by a former puzzle blogger Jerry Loo.

It consists of 8 plates to assembled into a 3D geometrical shape. It's not a burr but a "take-apart" puzzle.

Disassembling the puzzle is not super difficult, but still requires a bit of thinking. Basically you won't just slide the plates....I won't tell more, but you will have to try other kind of moves.... :)

So I played with the puzzle, tried several moves and at some point I managed to "free" one plate", then 2 more....and puzzle solved!

Solving the puzzle is challenging. Reassembling the puzzle is way too difficult (for me), so I cheated and saw a video on the internet to manage putting it back.

The puzzle looks nice and if you're ready for a big challenge, then go for it and buy it.

It's available on Puzzle Master webshop.

There are other puzzle (Dirty Dozen) in the same series that Puzzle Master produced. I will review another one a bit latter.

Priceless Puzzle Series #2 - Pearl

I have already review the diamond and now it's the turn of Pearl in the same series. In my opinion they have both more or less the same difficulty, even if I think that Diamond is a bit easier.

Pearl is a 3D printed puzzle designed by Jared Petersen and belongs to the Priceless Series.

First things first, the quality: very nice! Nicely crafted even if it's not from wood or metal.

Now that's inside? Of course I won't tell you. What I can tell you is that there are things rattling, maybe ball bearings?

Basically inside the 4 Priceless puzzles there are things rattling and those rattling bits must be part of the devilish mechanism!! :)

After a bit of time shaking the puzzle, turning, screwing....I finally solved it. It did not take me that long and I was surprised by the mechanism. It's simple and efficient. I am still not completely sure at 100% how it works :-(

Anyway if you've enjoyed any of the other Priceless puzzles, you should enjoy this one as well.


As usually you can find the puzzle on Puzzle Master webshop

Broken Heart -2nd part

As mentioned previously, I wanted to make another post when Broken Heart by Bozo would have been solved (by me!). And this is done, so I want to share with you my feelings about this nice plexi puzzle.

The quality is awsome, all the pieces fit perfectly. So no need to apply force. If you apply force, it just means that you should try with another piece to check if it fits better.

The goal is to pack all the pieces in the usualy with try-packing puzzles !

The announced difficulty is 6/10 and I agree with this rating. In my opinion, this is the easiest of the existing 3 puzzles made by Bozo. His other 2 being Ugy4 and 8cat. I struggled too much with them !!

Sorry I cannot put another picture because the solved state is clearly a spoiler, and I don't want to spoil you :)

Bozo said that he is not super happy with this puzzle (well all designers tend to say that they could have done a better puzzle lol) because he said that many people will not experience the twist in the puzzle and hence will not have difficulties to solve the puzzle.

Personally, I did not experience this twist, which does not mean that it was straight-forward. It is still challenging, but it could have been more challenging (and the rating could have been easily a 8/10 instead of a 6/10).

In my opinion, this is a very nice puzzle and you should get it: I love the shapes of the pieces, the quality is awsome, the twist is nice, the challenge is here and the final looking puzzle is awsome!

So you should definity buy it HERE

Broken Heart - Bozo quick article

A new Bozo puzzle has arrived. Bozo is famous for his puzzles Ugly4 and 8cat.

The new puzzle is called Broken Heart and its goal is to put all the 19 pieces into the frame.



For me 19 pieces is a lot, so I do think this will be a super challenging puzzle despite the difficulty of 6/10 

Like with 8cat, there is an additional challenge after you've solved the puzzle: a piece (or more) should be in the small bag. I won't cheat so I don't know yet.

Basically you get 2 puzzles in 1 !!

The quality is super good as usual, the shape of the pieces are unsual and I am sure I will have to think "outside of the box" to solve it !! I can only recommend you to buy it. It's not a limited edition, but I am sure that at some point it won't be produced.

You can buy Broken Heart directly on Bozo's website

Centrale is a wooden puzzle designed and made by the famous Jean-Claude Constantin. The goal is obvious: free the coin! The task is more difficult !

Basically you can cheat (I solved the puzzle this way): just shake the puzzle and maybe if you're lucky at some point it will be solved. But of course there is an "official" way to open it.

From what I guess there must be some ball bearings inside and probably you should try to manage to put them in their respective slots or something like that. The difficulty lies in the fact that all is hidden. I assume it's a super easy puzzle if everything would be visible :)

The crafting is (no surprise) very good!

I found the solution and I had some difficulties to reproduce it. I must be doing something wrong....

In my opinion this is a nice puzzle addition in your collection for a cheap price. It's not so much my cup of tea as I am not found of hidden puzzles where you're navigating blindly. But some people are only into these kinds of puzzles. 

I think this is a nice puzzle for anyone, seasoned puzzlers and newbies!

You can buy this puzzle at your favourite online webpuzzle shop...guess!!! Puzzle Master :)

Diamond puzzle

Diamond puzzle belongs to a series of 5 puzzles 3D-printed called "priceless". Is that because they are not expensive? Maybe. But they are very great!

I feel there are more and more 3D-printed puzzle. And the reason is easy to guess: they are solid and way easier (and cheaper) to craft than wood and metal puzzles. At the beginning of 3D-printed era I was a bit worries of the quality. And I have changed my mind with the several excellent 3D-printed puzzles.

The priceles puzzles are very clever and very challenging. Diamond is the easiest and I solved it prestly luck. The mechanism can be fully visible once solved. I can tell you that there is a lot of rattling things in the puzzle :)

If you ask me whether to buy it or not, I strongly say "yes". They are cheap, challenging, they don't take space and they display nicely. What more do you want?? :)

You can buy the puzzle at Puzzle Master Webshop
