5L Puzzle Review!

在2018年的头Yoshigahara设计大赛,Hajime Katsumoto received the Jury 1st Prize Award for the incredible pocket-sized puzzle known as ‘5L.’

Recently, MINE made available a limited run of this wonderful puzzle on his Japanese store and I was very quick to shout out and attempt to obtain one. Here are my thoughts on this surprisingly unique and fun puzzle. If you don’t own it yet just buy it.

Review in progress…

*Assembly (ASS) Non-Interlocking classificationrequires the arrangement of separate pieces to make specific shapes without regard to the sequence of that placing, they may clip together but do not interlock in 3D. Some have a container and are posed as packing problems. – James Dalgety & Edward Hordern (http://puzzlemuseum.com).
