Burl Tile Puzzle Box by Robert Yarger (Stickman Puzzles)

Sold out
The Burl Tile Puzzle is an amazing puzzle!
Created and crafted by Robert Yarger January-November 2016.
Woods used are Walnut, Leopardwood & Tamo Burl, the puzzle measures approximately 7 x 4.5 x 4.5 inches.

The crafter describes this puzzle as:
This puzzle has a single hidden chamber, accessed by manipulating all tiles on both sides to fully complete an intricate burl pattern. A special “runt tile” removes, producing a space for tiles to be manipulated like a traditional sliding tile puzzle.Tiles can also be rotated and exchanged from one side of the box to the other through use of its twisting end. A well-hidden trick will also allow them to lift up and rotate into different orientations within the box.
Once this puzzle is solved, internal logic bars can be flipped over and re-inserted to create an entirely different puzzle solving process. This secondary solution can lock tiles in place, so they can’t move until neighboring tiles are manipulated into certain positions. Managing to free a locked tile will at times also
indirectly lock yet another tile in place.
This puzzle is EXTREMELY difficult to solve. Number of steps to unveil the hidden space vary depending upon the starting position of the Burl Tiles.

One of only 50 crafted!

Comes with 9 page illustrated solution booklet.
*Buyers must be verified upon purchase.
