Kevin Sadler wrote about it:
“Wide Portico looks to be very similar to Portico J with 3 plate burrs and 3 standard stick burrs but has been made with a bigger grid and has more complex shaped pieces. two of the burrs seem to move easily but the third seems quite hard to unravel from it’s position. Gradually it is possible to see more of the plates and a tactic for extracting a piece starts to appear. Like a couple of other puzzles in this release, it is possible to rotate pieces and shortcut the solution. In itself this is quite fun but even tougher is to dismantle the puzzle with linear moves only. A real challenge at level 31.”
