I've finally split up the allother page - it had so many images, not all of them were loading before timeout. I've created a separate page for Dexterity Puzzles.

I have considerably enhanced my section on R. Journet dexterity puzzles.

I have added a lot of images to the Tanglements page - I may have to split up that page, too, soon...

I have added a condensed What's New page.

Moon Pi This is a sculpture puzzle called "Moon Pi" made by the artist Bathsheba Grossman, using a direct-metal 3-D printing process (Ex One / Prometal) driven by a CAD design. I learned about it via James Dalgety's Hordern-Dalgety Puzzle Museum site. James (and others) say it is very hard to assemble. We'll see.

Maxwell's Top Not exactly a puzzle, but pretty cool anyway - I'm getting a Maxwell's Top from Lee Valley. Read more about Maxwell's Top here and here.

I'd never heard of Maxwell's Top before I discovered references to it while looking for references to a particular puzzle book called Engineer Through the Looking Glass. Chapter 4 is available on-line as a PDF.

I finally updated my Books page. Check it out for a link to a free puzzle book you can get.

I thought it would be fun to put a "What I'm working on lately" section on my home page.

I had ordered two puzzles from Puzzlecraft, but they never arrived. I made several attempts to contact them, by phone and by e-mail, but they never got back to me with any response whatsoever. I am mystified by their behavior, and I had no choice but to cancel the charge. I am still wondering what happened, and I am disinclined to do business with them again.

Happy Memorial Day!

Got another copy of Binary Arts' Mystery Shapes designed by Oskar van Deventer, Rising Mountain stacking puzzle from Brilliant Games and Puzzles, took a chance on another magic trick - Ring on Bolt, a Peanuts packing puzzle, the Mental Case from Frik 'n' Frak, another Dovetail by Reiss (my other one was "chewed"), a lot including an Apple by Lakeside, Tee Time from XEX, another set of wire puzzles, and a 1934 Chicago World's Fair Egg jigsaw.

Note regarding the Ring-on-Bolt trick - don't bother. I should have learned my lesson by now about magic tricks not making good puzzles, but hope springs eternal :-)

January 29 2005 - The New York Puzzle Party

Tom Cutrofello hosted a puzzle party in New York city. There were about 30 attendees, with presentations on various topics throughout the day, puzzle swapping and buying/selling, and puzzle talk. I had a great time and got to meet several "puzzle celebrities." Kudos to Tom for organizing and pulling off a very pleasant event!

Here is a link to some photos of the event, taken by my friend Brett and his father.

I brought along a selection of duplicates and other items for show and trade, and was able to pick up some fun additions to my collection:

William Waite - Double Cross I received a "Double Cross" (without the tray) from William Waite (Nemmelgeb Murr). I think I actually prefer it without the tray - the pieces mate tightly and seem like they would be difficult to manipulate if they were in a tray.
