This is the final post in my series about the puzzles in the 2014 Puzzle Design Competition . All photos are by Nick Baxter from the 2014 Design Competition website.
Tel Arad - Yael Meron
I had a good time solving this one, folding problems tend to involve a bit of logic and a bit of trial and error. You can see which pieces need to be adjacent to which pieces based on whether there is string joining them. Yael had a smaller version of this as her exchange puzzle.
Tetra-Pack - Ton Brouwer
The assembled puzzle looks great, with the points of the cube poking out the sides of the tetrahedron. It was disassembled when I found it, so I tried putting the pieces back in. It turns out that the tetrahedron likes to block you at every turn, the first few pieces are easy but then I started getting stuck. I would have liked to spend more time with this one, it is a neat design.
Thor´s Hammer - Stephan Baumegger
3 Celestial Stars - Stewart Coffin, Stephen Chin, George Bell
3 Pentagons - Koshi Arai
Trinity - Michail Toulouzas
Two Dogs - Diniar Namdarian
Whitebox - Volker Latussek
Well, that's all for this year's design competition, I hope you enjoyed it! I know I've been slacking off on the blog recently, but hopefully I'll be getting started with more regular posts again.
