I am happy to release a first small batch of 2 new puzzles ! Pack4u is a packing puzzle I have designed. The goal is to pack the 5 pieces (4 different Us + 1 w) into the 4-shaped box. This packing puzzle is of medium difficulty. It's a typical solve for a packing puzzle, with some nice moves. And the shape with the apparent cube (actually not a cube, a 4x4x2 block) is fun ! Framed Chaos is a puzzle designed by Lucie Pauwels. It's a packing puzzle as well, with some original shape. The goal is to fit the 4 pieces inside the 2 frames, in order to form a 6x6x2 block. See the goal below, as a 3D model to avoid any spoiler. This packing puzzle is of medium difficulty. I like it because of the original goal, it is a fun puzzle as well. Thank you Lucie for the nice design ! These 2 puzzles will be added to the shop. Depending on demand, I will produce more.

I am really happy to announce the release of my new puzzle, Hexabox ! Hexabox is a puzzle box, with coordinated motions and a pinch of sequential discovery. I like to refer it as the big sister of Drawer Box, one of my very first designs, with some nice additions and improvements. It requires 25+ moves to remove the 3 drawers and to find the hidden coin with 3 phases in the game. It is a difficult puzzle, with, I hope, some nice Ah Ha ! moments down the road. The production is just starting. The first 4 copies are already reserved for early birds, but more will come. I will maintain a waiting list and communicate when copies are available.
Long time since my previous release, I needed a (long) break. And expect a (long) break after this release, no worry, I am just way too busy... Gift Box is a packing puzzle, with an apparent cube inside a gift box (I am so clever with names...). I played with that concept for a while and found several interesting configurations. I wanted to have multiple challenges into one. So I settled on a configuration with which you can assemble 3 different 3x3x3 cubes with the same 7 pieces. You take out 2 pieces out and pack the 5 remaining into the gift box. Each game has a few assemblies outside of the box (2 or 3) and one unique solution inside. There might be rotational shortcuts but so far I did not find any. I played myself with Game 3, as a blind solve, and found the packing part actually tricky ! Since we don’t like to have isolated pieces hanging out on collectors’ shelves, I designed a square box to fit under the gift box once assembled and contain the 2 extra pieces. The resu
