“I already own The Rattle Twist duo (I & II) made for me by a very good puzzling friend and I was very keen to investigate this 3rd one in the series. These puzzles are designed by the amazing Osanori Yamamoto and his devious mind manages to produce wonderful challenges with very few pieces which may or may not require rotational moves. This puzzle shares the same pieces as the original but a different plate for them to be arranged within. There are 4 different woods available and I couldn’t resist the Maple and Purpleheart combination. Just 2 pieces in a simple frame? Shouldn’t take long? I thought so and I thought wrong (as usual) – it took me several hours. There’s at least one rotation and the pieces get caught amongst each other blocking most moves. Eventually I had to stop and think what I needed to do and how the shapes would do it before solving it. Random moves would not work for me here. Lovely idea and I’m pleased to own the third in the series – so beautifully made too.”
