“On Facebook, Tamás has been designing and producing some absolutely incredible challenges and has worked with Pelikan over the last year to bring them to reality for us all to enjoy, however, I have not seen him design a packing puzzle before. I was surprised and delighted to see the Umbrella amongst the latest arrivals. This packing puzzle has something special which is just what I would expect from Tamás – all the pieces have a unique box like design which allows them to be changed into 2 different shapes. The workmanship required to create this puzzle is astounding – the American Walnut L shaped pieces have a stem and a box round that stem which slides freely into each of the two positions. All the pieces need to be placed into the Ash box. There are quite a lot of solutions and it is a rather delightful soothing process to try and find them. There is always a single voxel gap inside and I have attempted to find solutions which have that gap in various different positions. This is a lovely idea and fun for all experience levels.”

I am a huge fan of Tamas designs. His burrs and mazes are from a parallel universe where everything is … spectacular. Now he offers a packing puzzle and it is, again, an amazing idea. The pieces have a special sliders that can change the shape of these pieces. Now you have not two but 4 different pieces you need to pack inside the box. I had a chance to play with the copy made by Tamas in Vetrkovice Puzzle Party last year – thanks to Pelikan team I own one now.
