我还需要另一套新毛刺吗?

那肯定是.....是的! 

DDD毛刺机盒
DDD毛刺套装内部和零件
首先,在我开始平时的菜谱之前,让我做广告我的朋友史蒂夫的 新博客首页-Boxes and Booze已从Blogger移至Squarespace,现在他 有他自己的域名和今天3d开奖结果漂亮的新站点托管于 盒子andBooze.com. 就像我们很多被迫使用糟糕的新Blogger帖子编辑器的人一样 from Google and hate it, 史蒂夫 has sought an alternative 那 is less dreadful 似乎已经找到了。与我们很多人不同,他实际上已经摆脱了困境 并完成了移动平台的工作。到那边,在站点上加书签,享受 他那令人困惑的酒精饮料品牌。现在,只要我有勇气 尝试迁移将近10年的博客。

关于今天的主题。是的,这是另今天3d开奖结果毛刺!我需要吗 another one? Mrs S definitely asked 那 when it turned up - of course I would 永远不要让她知道什么时候要出售的。我从不让她知道我什么时候 actually in the process of buying new toys, 那 sort of thing is on a 严格地“需要知道基础”,而她则不需要。她唯一需要做的 知道何时该向邮递员,UPSman,FedExman,Yodelman上门 等等亲爱的... hack!哎哟! Oops! 

我有几个?洗脚,令人毛骨悚然地往下看。然后跑上楼 得到他们并拍一张可爱的照片:

嗯,我好像有6个。
我似乎沉迷于拼图游戏-所有这些我都拥有 足够的挑战使我终生难忘,但我仍然从不拒绝更多 them. hack!哎哟! The latest 除了我刚刚开始使用的收藏外,DDD burr set from 埃里克·富勒 in a collaboration with by 达里尔 Adams and Bryan Turner. It was described as:

"在1970年代,比尔·卡特勒(Bill Cutler)发表了关于固体的完整摘要 6-piece burrs 那 could be formed from “notchable”件。他提出了今天3d开奖结果 set of 42 pieces 那 would make all 314 solid, 刻薄的 puzzles. I wanted a smaller set. One 那 was easy to make (notchable) and also 允许足够有趣的拼图来引导用户 难度越来越大。我称这套“DDD” for “Darryl’s Dense Dozen” (或者对我的孩子们,“Dad’s Dense Dozen”). The set is “dense” in 那 it makes 很多难题:

有24个立体拼图 

总共有530个谜题(其他506个谜题为空 孔)

只有今天3d开奖结果解决方案的42个难题"

Whilst I already have the pieces separately 那 are in this set, I really 想要今天3d开奖结果很小的便携式设备,并且还认为拥有今天3d开奖结果 metal set of burr sticks so 那 I needn't be worried about damage. They 生产了一套黄铜,上面有今天3d开奖结果华丽的豹纹木盒子,价格略便宜 Aluminium set with a Padauk box which I chose to prove to Mrs S 那 I didn't 总是买我能找到的最昂贵的拼图 hack!哎哟! 另外,我已经从中购买了很多黄铜拼图 大史蒂夫和阿里 并花一些时间抛光它们,因为我喜欢拼图 而不是老套。哦,是的,你买了 孔拼图?如果您还没有,那么应该在他们卖完之前得到一份副本,因为它们只是 他们的Kickstarter广告系列结束后,他们做了一些额外的事情。

再说一次,由于我的工作量,我没有花很多时间(我 等不及要给整个人群接种疫苗,我们可以做更多的工作 通常),但确实不顾一切地试图写点东西。 I failed to solve the rest of the puzzles 那 had been left from last week's 博客文章,然后单单未能解决任何令人难以置信的复杂问题 的手榴弹拼图 王亚伦 并且需要在我的生活中取得一些成功。 DDD毛刺套装问世 还有一些我能够解决的挑战,这些让我很高兴 再过一周。

美丽的建筑和真正可爱的铝毛刺棒
我通常在组装难题上很糟糕,但是由于某种原因,我能够 度过几个快乐的夜晚,把碎片砸在猫的头上,不要打扰 他太多了,因为铝很轻,而且碎片很好, small. So far I have only solved the puzzles 那 use the solid key piece (which 这可能就是我成功的原因),并且发现它确实非常轻松- 改变了我通常会去做的弯曲弯腰的东西。

万岁!我终于解决了问题!
This success may not continue as I work my way through the rest of the puzzles on the lid and the others in the pdf 那 埃里克 has supplied but I am happy 那 something has gone right for once.

Now, are you interested in Hex? I know 那 I am! If you are a certain age (like me) then you will remember a 某本书 from your childhood 那 your parents would definitely let you read. I know I wasn't allowed to look 在 it - my parents let me drink alcohol instead! 大史蒂夫和阿里 (along with the 天才 那 is 德里克·博世(Derek Bosch)) have created a burr set with a difference 那 will take you back to those heady days of trying to sneak around and look 在 something you weren't supposed to. Yes, They have created a burr set based on hexagonal pieces - it's on the way to me as I type and Mrs S is really not impressed 那 it is large and weighs 3.8公斤(8.5磅)我计划让她放松,并在下次她再见到他们时对史蒂夫和阿里做最坏的事情。

大黄铜十六进制设置在我的路上。
hack!哎哟! 宝贝对不起。
如果您还需要额外的和非常不同的毛刺设置,那么您可能应该访问 Twobrassmonkeys 并在售罄之前购买副本。

确保所有人的安全-那里仍然非常危险...特别是如果您在美国。



2020年9月6日,星期日

周到的设计大师课程...

锁箱
我能听到你们所有人都难以置信地喘着粗气!是的,我买了今天3d开奖结果盒子!
但...
这不是今天3d开奖结果盒子! 埃里克 描述了 锁箱 作为“顺序发现难题框”-答案就在您的面前-描述的主要部分,因此,首先出现的是顺序发现难题。这意味着我可以购买它-我真的不反对带有空腔的拼图,只要对我来说有些特别的困惑。你们都知道我喜欢SD拼图,当然,我无可救药地沉迷于华丽的木材。这种奇妙的建筑令人叹为观止,它是由花型瀑布沙比利制成的,钥匙由沙比利和贾托巴制成(再加上一些金属。到处都是美丽的东西,我把它保留在我的客厅里了,尽管S夫人是再次开始不耐烦,因为那里又出现了许多难题。

这个难题对于手握3英寸x 4英寸x 1.45英寸的尺寸非常合适(我真的不明白为什么Yanks对于小型线性测量不会采用公制),关键是 2.45" x 1.25" x 0.75". 埃里克 described this as one of his best designs to date and 那 tipped me over the edge - there was a bit of a shenanigans 在 the checkout and I missed out when they first went up for sale but after a delay of a few days 埃里克 and Tom 在 Cubic-dissection tried again and miraculously my cart was already full and the checkout happened seconds later...Phew!

女王Ma下海关绑架了很长一段时间,我非常紧张地等待着我,然后才通过皇家邮件索要赎金,我很乐意付钱购买我的玩具。令“我想用我的'点燃'点燃火'的她”感到非常厌恶的是,我还收到了Eric的“改进的一件式包装拼图”之一-今天3d开奖结果多月后仍未解决。

这些照片不能说明难题-我以前从未听说过瀑布沙比利,并想知道它的意思。几乎可以在顶部的照片中辨认出木头上的涟漪,这就是将其标记为瀑布的一种形式。当保持良好的光线时,它简直就是华丽。我读过 评论 通过 布伦特·赫塞尔(Brent Hessel) 然后他给了它全部五个Sinatras,然后我读了我的外科朋友, 史蒂夫苏斯博士涌出 意见, which meant 那 I had to start on this one straight away.

Looking in the keyhole, it looks like he has made a set of internal pathways for the pins of the key to interact with - I did wonder whether he might have made a sort of inverted wooden 复仇. Of course, with any lock puzzle 那 comes with a key, it is obligatory to try the key in the keyway and turn. Will something unlock quickly 那 way?

钥匙转动了...什么都没发生
Just look 在 the waterfall markings in 那!
Of course nothing will happen when you turn the key! In fact, it turns only about 40º and in the wrong direction. Time to investigate further. There are not supposed to be any moves 那 require banging or force or gravity which helps because when turning the puzzle over and over, there are quite a lot of interesting clanking noises inside and sometimes not any clanking noises...odd!

It will come as no surprise 那 there are magnets in this - the pins of the key clanked onto a steel wire puzzle 那 was sitting on my armchair next to me. In fact when I pulled the key off the wire puzzle one of the pins came out - yes, its a teeny tiny spoiler to show it but not much of a spoiler so I will show it:

电磁销-它们是做什么用的?
这给难题带来了许多额外的可能性-是时候在拔掉销钉的情况下放回钥匙了,... NOPE!  What about moving the pins into different positions and orientations? Aha! Interesting things happen inside except I cannot tell what is happening. There is clanking and clinking inside but nothing changing externally. It doesn't take long to realise 那 the hole on the key is useful for something and then there are even more possibilities which produce more completely incomprehensible internal changes - I love it and I am stuck!

Several weeks go 通过 in which I systematically try almost every possible combination of pieces, orientations and directions possible with no progress. At some point in 那 period, I work out what combinations produce what noises most of the time but 在 other times there are some really big noises in there and I think 埃里克 is playing with me. Earlier this week I find a thing which causes something externally to happen and after 那 little buzz of excitement, I am stuck again.

我聊天到 天才 那是德里克·博世(Derek Bosch),在讨论的几个晚上,他告诉我他设法解决了这个问题!天哪,我好厚!他给了我一点点无害的暗示,我意识到埃里克是个邪恶的混蛋,在我完全知道我会一次又一次地做某事的情况下,让我做出愚蠢的事。埃里克(Eric)知道我并不聪明。德里克(Derek)的暗示非常微不足道,我仍然花了将近今天3d开奖结果小时的时间来弄清楚他正在做什么,而且我看到了迷惑人心的误导。它不仅需要进行配置更改,而且还需要以一种意外的方式进行交互以产生出乎我意料的机芯-很棒!现在,如果这给您提供了真正的线索,那么您也是今天3d开奖结果天才,因为我几乎看不懂该段落,而是我写的。

Having used Derek's meagre clue, I have ,ade progress and I continue to try all the things I had done before all over again with the box configured differently. As usual, I have clanking about and no further movement. But this time I think I know what is going on inside and want to try something extra. The problem is I am missing a tool to do 那 extra something. Now what? 可能be of I can...oooooh...Aha! Now 那 was a clever piece of design and with a little fiddling and some rather fine dexterity, I make a move. Solved! There's no real clue in the next photo but don't look if you really don't want any information 在 all.



This explained some of the noises inside but not all. Somehow something didn't feel quite right. That last unlocking move had been very clever (especially in how it made me use what I had already got) but there was too much dexterity involved and 埃里克 very seldom designs puzzles 那 require luck or dexterity. Time to think©再次。我有什么?它有哪些特殊属性?我可以不同地使用它吗?天哪-是的!我再次尝试了最后一招,但有所不同,在单击之前有点摆动和阻力,我高兴地叹了口气!

这个顺序发现难题盒是杰作-无论是在工艺上还是在使木材变得漂亮的木材上,都体现在内部设计的细节上。每今天3d开奖结果步骤都被设计为隐藏的,需要实验,发现和思考,才能揭示其秘密。这真是太好了,并且是2020年我年度十大最佳候选人之一。到目前为止,今年是一场车祸,但是像这样的巨大难题使我摆脱了世界各地的可怕状况。

2020年5月3日,星期日

逻辑进展我的A£$€!

哦!现在看看那个…………嗯!

嗯!上周我可能有点愚蠢!
X射线立方体妥善解决!
On Facebook, it had been asked 通过 someone what our approach to solving puzzles was. There were several fantastic answers 通过 puzzlers who are far better than me 在 actually solving these blasted toys and I had to admit 那 my approach was a little scatter-brained:

我认为这是今天3d开奖结果好方法!
在我开始今天的难题复习之前,请让我先做个小小的宣泄,然后将我大脑的糟糕状态暴露给大家!在我的 最近的评论 在所有即将到来的 百利金拼图, I had given the impression 那 I had solved and enjoyed Volker 拉图塞克's X-ray cube - Enjoyed? Yes, solved? 脸红...nope! Unfortunately, I have to own up to being really not terribly bright!! I had slid open the lid, poured out the contents without paying 在 tention to the arrangement and then assumed 那 the challenge was to put all the odd shapes back inside and close the lid again. I thought 那 the name of the puzzle came from the X shape 那 was visible through the hole in the top and bottom of the box. Doh! Now, whilst I had found doing 那 a significant challenge (and it is certainly one 那 you all should try), this was definitely the main aim of the puzzle. Both Volker and Jakub contacted me to inform me 那 I was not terribly bright! (my words, not theirs).

我又花了今天3d开奖结果小时左右执行平常的工作(如上所示) 在过去的几天里,解决难题的方法广为流传,但我还是一如既往地失败了,不得不尝试Allard愚蠢的“思考©“事!当今天3d开奖结果念头确实浮现在脑海中时,我就要承认失败(显然这不是我自己的念头,我真的很想知道是谁把那个念头放在了我的脑海里,因为那是今天3d开奖结果好主意)-我我尝试了一些新的东西,看起来似乎是正确的。我尝试了几次,然后突然我正确地解决了它-X射线立方体的名称(如您在文章顶部所见)的原因是难题已正确解决,您可以直接看到它!是的!现在,我必须弄清楚如何将其放回未解决的位置....再次!这确实是今天3d开奖结果非常有趣的挑战,如果您只是如果您想使用Allard的愚蠢方法,请尝试随机动作和可爱的心理锻炼。

Now on to my regular 评论ing! Which unfortunately reveals yet again 那 Allard's fascination with using the brain might actually be right! Damn! I hate saying 那!

逻辑进展
逻辑级数是Rick Eason设计的,由 埃里克·富勒。您可能不知道,但Rick负责设计 最好的两个  我曾经研究过的纠缠难题- 棘手的家伙 (又名一日游)-可用 这里 in Australia and 这里 在欧洲),这是今天3d开奖结果坚强的兄弟 棘手的迪克的归来 (又名“城市旅行”)-也可以从Tomas Linden获得 这里 (目前无法从 拼图大师 对于你们在美洲的人)。解决这两个辉煌的难题花了我很长时间,而且从表面上看,解决这些难题需要思想而不是随意的动作。

Initially, the 逻辑进展 was not particularly interesting for me because it wasn't as beautiful as most of 埃里克's usual creations and I didn't realise who the designer was when I first looked on the store. I thus missed out on the first batch after they sold out pretty quickly. Only later, enticed 通过 the designer's name, did I spend some time reading the blurb on the product page. I had been much too dismissive on looks alone. I realised 那 this would almost certainly be a really fun challenge! Lesson no. 1 - always read the description as well as drool over the pretty pictures. 埃里克's description said this:
"逻辑进展 is a very unique cube. With only one solution which must be accomplished with serial assembly, it seems 在 first look 那 this puzzle will be a trial and error nightmare. However, the puzzle is designed such 那 scrutiny of the pieces will reveal their positional constraints; therefore the puzzle can be solved 通过 analysis rather than guesswork."
Having finally gotten around to reading this, I decided 那 I should get a copy and contacted 埃里克, I was pleased to hear 那 another batch was due to be released - phew! When it was released, I missed out on the fancy exotic wood but still managed to get a copy in Maple and Oak. When it arrived it was a rather odd-looking and very rickety 3-inch cube. It definitely is not one of my most beautiful acquisitions! I really hoped 那 it would be as good a challenge as claimed.

拍完上面的照片后,我拉了一下,一簇碎片滑落,然后又滑了几下。拆除后,其中一些在定位销上旋转并失去方向。繁荣!我无法回忆起血腥的事情是如何分裂的。我为我的惯用照片布置了所有作品:

噢亲爱的!这看起来比我最初想象的要复杂!
然后,我将所有碎片捆在一起,以便可以坐下来尝试重新制作立方体。此时,我开始后悔自己的购买!

我的天啊!我可能有麻烦了!
I received this puzzle in 九月 2019 and have carried a bag of bits around with me ever since then and have 在 tempted to assemble the cube 许多 许多 times. Bearing in mind my usual random movements approach, there was absolutely no doubt 那 I was doomed to failure! I idly tried a little thinking©除了头疼不已之外,我再一次失败了。我可能花了10个小时左右的时间,然后对自己的书包中的笨拙和刺痛的结块感到厌倦。我再次阅读说明并前往 里克的网站对于some encouragement and maybe even a hint or two. Rick claims 那 this is the very best of his puzzle designs and remembering those disentanglement puzzles, I was all the more determined to solve it myself. He does have a step 通过 step assembly on his site as well as a text file going over the logical steps. I downloaded the text file and stored it without looking (honest guv!). I HAD to find the logical progression 那 Rick wrote about.

最终放弃了我通常的随机运动方法后,我不得不看一下难题,并考虑碎片的可能排列方式。它由16个不同的L形四聚体组成,每个都在3个体素中具有孔,并在今天3d开奖结果立方体内固定了4个体素长度的销钉,这些销钉将穿过  其他相邻零件上的孔。每个Tetromino只能有今天3d开奖结果4个单位长的销钉,总共16个,确定整个拼图的可能方向很重要。这是我第一次啊哈!时刻!绝对不是我想的那么随意。实际上,您不仅可以计算出杆的可能样式,还可以将其逐层缩小。

然后,我必须查看所有片段并将它们分类为子类型,然后确定潜在的行/列-它在纸上开始看起来相当混乱,但是很多小Aha!发生的时刻:

它看起来比实际情况糟得多。
正如里克所说...这是逻辑上的进步
The paper section was pretty much done with and it was time to play with my wood. Having established 那 certain rows had to have the dowels in certain directions, I worked on some random assembling of more limited pieces. This is much better than picking from all of them and just trying to lump them together! In fact, it became very obvious 那 3 pieces needed to be placed first and there was only 2 possible arrangements for 他们。 This could very rapidly be reduced to just one possible arrangement. Wow!!! I was using logic! Once I got started on the assembly 通过 thought©,事情进展很快,直到我完成了2个完整的图层,并放置了第3个图层的一些部分。

Now what? Again, I only needed to look 在 the shapes 那 I had and think©关于将非常快的可能性减少到接下来的几块的可能性。更多的逻辑给了我最顶层2层的位置,然后拆开今天3d开奖结果部分以使各种新的部分就位就很简单了。经过大约3-4个小时的逻辑运算,我的多维数据集再次完全组装好。

OMG!!! That was an absolutely incredible puzzle! It goes to show 那 beauty alone is not all 那 one should judge them on. The more puzzling I do over so 许多 years now, the more I appreciate when a puzzle designer makes something 那 is pure cerebral solving for a mechanical puzzle. Thank you, 埃里克 and Rick, for making me Think©!血腥阿拉德和他的幻想方法! Rassafrassarickarackets !!!




2020年3月29日,星期日

S夫人在压力下打桩

这是今天3d开奖结果盒子!但是我 不要收集箱子。因此,它不是盒子。
Hi guys, I hope 那 you are all keeping safe out there? Please please please:

呆在家里!

您可能身体健康,但英国的COVID-19死于健康的21岁女孩,欧洲大陆也死于16岁。我们谁都不安全-结果取决于既存的合并症,甚至更重要的是病毒载量。如果您服用大剂量,可能会遇到麻烦。这就解释了为什么医护人员是死亡率高的人群之一……尽管有PPE,我们的接触水平却很高。即使使用PPE,也很容易长时间转移注意力并擦擦眼睛或忘记使您的手变得粘滞。由于大多数重症监护药物(至少在欧洲和大洋洲)是由麻醉师提供的,因此急诊科和急诊科的工作人员也首当其冲。即使你 不要以为你有危险-记住你 不想杀死您或他人的父母/祖父母!

我不确定我还能写博客多长时间-我的职责每天都在变化,还有临床职责,我正在处理耗材/设备,并且随着工作人员的离职需要重写随叫随到的角色周围。在接下来的一周左右的时间里,我将在晚上和周末做更多的工作,可能暂时无法解决或解决任何难题。我会尽我所能,尽我所能为您准备一些东西。

在一周中,事情变得很忙,而我的闲置时间却降到了零。晚上,我似乎无法专心。所以 星期六是一段时间以来的第一天假,我决心为今天的博客文章解决一些问题。我已经收到 埃里克 S太太在门廊隔离后的一周内释放了包裹后,于本周初。它用通常的橙色胶带标记着立方解剖难题,我花了一点时间与一只贪婪的猫搏斗以占有(他迷住了薄纸,甚至更爱串!)里面是今天3d开奖结果盒子。但是,不是,不是盒子-不可能是因为我 不要收集箱子。空腔中充满了9个漂亮的木制组件-我确实收集木头了!!!流口水!

9种不同的木材和展示柜
包装盒上通常的信号和精美的做工
I knew 那 I had to have this just because of the woods and the workmanship. Plus I have become more and more addicted to interlocking puzzles. This particular puzzle - yes, it is effectively just ONE puzzle was designed 通过 Lee Sallows (I am ashamed to say 那 I have never seen 那 name before) and fabulously made 通过 埃里克 from Black Limba, Walnut, Mahogany, Leopardwood, Wenge, Spalted Tamarind, Canarywood, Quilted Maple, Paduak, Red Grandis (Box). The Blurb (which I didn't read said:
Reticulated Cubes is a fascinating exploration of 3x3 cube puzzles with a novel twist. Each box contains nine pieces, and there are eight possible cube solutions. The goal is to organize the pieces in the box such 那 any three pieces 在今天3d开奖结果 straight line will assemble into a cube (tic-tac-toe style). The solution is quite difficult to find!
因此,这是一种数独和多个连锁难题! Fab!

首先,仔细看看零件和盒子:

甚至网格都很漂亮!
您最喜欢哪种木头?
I initially set to just random cube assembly and realised 那 individually they were not 那 hard to make (no rotations or multiple moves to get them interlocked) but then when I tried to make 2 在 the same time, it got harder quite quickly and then a third was really tough! I tried again and only could make one! None of the remaining pieces could be assembled! OMG! Time to Think©(那很痛苦)。我拿出一张纸和一支铅笔,做了一些加法...几次!我最终制定了今天3d开奖结果计划-我的计划隐藏在扰流板按钮的后面- 如果您打算自己解决此问题,请不要单击它。



完成最初的计划后,我便和早餐在S夫人的早餐桌旁坐了下来。她对碎片的数量和喃喃自语的迅速发作感到困惑。 that occurred next to her. After an hour the muttering had escalated to swearing and she was starting to get annoyed. She asked me what I was trying to do and then asked whether I had a quieter puzzle to play with. When I told her 那 I HAD to solve this for the blog the following day she gave me an ultimatum...You have GOT to do this within another 2 hours or you MUST move onto something else! Aaargh! As if the pressure of work and blogging 还不够-她是今天3d开奖结果刻薄的斗气女人,右腿有力,所以我非常认真地对待这一切。

After another 10 minutes, I actually had a second epiphany - the initial pattern 那 I had thought of could be narrowed down 通过 looking 在 further restrictions in the pieces 那 can interact together 在 all. This was made quite a bit tougher 通过 the fact 那 I seemed to be incapable of interlocking 2 pieces 那 really HAD to go together. Then...Aha! I had a breakthrough and some more pieces were placed in the grid and finally, just as I came up towards my deadline, I had it solved. Phew - such pressure from both puzzle and Mrs S!

解决方案在另今天3d开奖结果扰流器按钮后面-再次 除非您确实想查看解决方案,否则请不要单击它。



Wow! What an incredible puzzle - the design is fabulous - I loved having to think about multiple assemblies 那 went side 通过 side and am delighted with 埃里克's workmanship and choice of gorgeous wood. My addiction is well served 这里 - even Mrs S liked the look of it even if she did not like my swearing.

Luckily I was able to solve it before she a) murdered me or b) physically took it off me and put another puzzle in my hands! Next up, my puzzle fro this evening is how to write a rota 那 usually has 30 people on it providing 3 tiers of cover with only 18 people, some of whom may disappear 在 any moment (but I don't know who will be disappearing)!  Wish me luck.

确保所有人的安全-真正注意所提供的建议。这对您和您的家人都是危险的。如果您听从建议,那么这可能会在今天3d开奖结果月左右的时间内得到控制(忽略复活节的“橙色傻瓜”计划),我们希望卫生服务不会超出他们的承受能力。

我要下车了吗?

一定不行!

PackTIC#8
By pure luck, I am still 这里 and ready to blog! Mrs S continues to cough her lungs out day and night driving me to thoughts of strangulation and smothering. Despite a move to the spare bedroom and adoption of a pair of rather uncomfortable earplugs, I can still hear her 在 all hours of the day and night. I have refrained from murder purely because I thought 那 you crazy puzzlers out there might miss my drivel which would cease if I were to be arrested. Even her laser-burning stare has been weakened and only produces a slight tingling between my eyes.

The question I ask myself and more often 那 Mrs S asks me frequently is can you have too 许多 Turning Interlocking Cubes (TICs)? Mrs S was moved to ask me 那 (or something similar) after another box arrived on Friday from Bernhard - a little pre-Brexit treat to myself before customs and duty will be added to packages from Europe.

痉挛
神经质
ElfTIC-需要一些修补胶水
泻药
遗传学
这些应该让我忙一阵子,除非S太太恢复体力并决定让我离开!

显然,我不能拥有太多的TIC!最近我一直在和另外两个 安德鲁·克罗威尔来自杰出的木材教授的惊人设计, 布莱恩·梅诺(Brian Menold) 从木博士那里 埃里克·富勒。文章顶部的图片是PackTIC#8-只需将5片插入框架即可制成常规的4x4x4立方体。应该很容易吧?也许是为了你,但不是为了我!我喜欢这些难题,但即使现在也真的很难解决。

More recently these puzzles have been sent out to fellow sufferers in pieces as assembly puzzles and, despite my lack of assembly skillz, I agree 那 this is the best choice. I started with the puzzle from Brian 因为它比较小,因此如果我有机会在安静的时间玩耍,我可能会打耳光然后回去工作。第一项任务...弄清楚它们如何形成立方体,而无需将其实际插入框架中。尽管形状怪异,但我确实很难找到立方体装配体。最大的方形块看起来应该受到很大的限制,但实际上,它可以以几种不同的方向插入。是的,我知道我在找些微不足道的借口,但我确实对这令人费解的方面不满意!一世 脸红 to admit 那 it took me over 7 days of trying to find the positions 那 the pieces need to be in. I usually advise any trainee anaesthetists or medical students 那 I have got bored with teaching and need to amuse in some way 那 they should start with the larger pieces and see what

终于找到了位置,是时候组装立方体了。实际上,我在这部分并不算太坏-可能要花一些时间,但是一旦我知道应该去哪里,我通常只会挣扎一点,真正享受这个过程。这次只花了我大约½今天3d开奖结果小时来组装我的立方体。布赖恩(Brian)认为这一难度比其他一些难度要低,因为它只有15个动作和4个旋转。我爱它!非常聪明,真的很完美。贴身舒适但不紧绷-我怀疑在英国夏天,如果潮湿一些,首先不弄干可能是不可能的,但就目前而言,这是今天3d开奖结果惊人的挑战。对于今天3d开奖结果绝对的初学者来说可能有点困难,但是绝对可以炫耀并吸引某人进入爱好。

组装好了!今天3d开奖结果可爱的难题。恰到好处的困难。
Next up I moved to 生物技术, the TIC 那 turned 埃里克 off to these puzzles!

生物技术
生物技术 is one of the most difficult TICs 那 Andrew has designed - 埃里克 described it like this.
"BioTic是一只野兽!解决该问题需要28个总动作和9个旋转。"
I knew I was going to buy this because, well, it's a TIC but, with a description like 那 I was slobbering all over my keyboard! Sorry for 那 image! It arrived in 十二月 and after a little fiddle and a photo, I put it down to develop my cold and feel sorry for myself.

The puzzle is made from a gorgeous dark Sapelle and Walnut pairing and is seriously chunky (considerably bigger than those made 通过 Brian) - this was to ensure 那 it would withstand the complex movements required to get the 6 pieces inside the frame. Two of the best puzzlers in the world, 乔治·贝尔 and Goetz Schwandtner wrote rave 评论s on the page and said how much of a challenge this is. I decided after reading their 评论s 那 I should solve something else first and started on the PackTIC#8.

成功使我大吃一惊,我转向了BioTIC和BAM!撞墙!看着较大的部分并计算出理论位置是不可能的!通常,我可以一次和今天3d开奖结果框架一起玩,从而弄清楚各个部分的去向。这样可以发现可能的放置位置,并有助于可视化其他零件的放置位置。有了这个难题,最大的拼图就可以在几个地方放在外面,对您没有帮助。移至下一部分,我 根本找不到将它们放入框架的方法! lp!一周后,我去了Burrtools,至少向我展示了这些展示位置。我知道这是一种作弊,但挑战的一小部分就是职位。

看到一切都在哪里之后,我开始了聚会和耶和华,那几乎是不可能的!我可以看到装配结束时,只有3个零件插入了框架,但是3个更复杂的零件将是巨大的挑战。他们应该按什么顺序?他们甚至怎么会进入框架?什么是生命的意义?哦,是的,那将是42!我为此工作了好几天又一天又几天,并且获得了巨大的AHA!当我设法将最大的一块放入框架并将其操纵到最终位置的那一刻-phe!下今天3d开奖结果。我需要放置另一块形状奇特的大块,而第今天3d开奖结果块总是无处不在。又过了几天,甚至S夫人都从她的咳嗽声中抬起头来,对我对成功的感叹。最后,最后一块需要放置,并且实际上被堵住了。需要一天或两天,我明白了!

我的天啊!真是挑战!
这个难题非常棘手-旋转的绝对数量是其中的一部分,但是主要的困难是零件的复杂性,只是将它们操纵到框架中。它很棒,已经成为2020年难题的候选者!克罗威尔先生,你真是个天才-请继续设计它们。我要去TIC吗?绝对不!

如果您有机会玩或购买这些拼图, 不要犹豫-他们很棒。 Brian仍然有一些 集群难题 (another non-cubic rotational design 通过 Andrew) 那 I 在这里评论。不要错过-只是因为它不是今天3d开奖结果立方体, 不要小看它的乐趣。

我将评论放到Eric的商店后,我和Eric进行了一些聊天,他现在不打算制作更多的TIC,因为他觉得自己无法将它们做得足够好。 played with and also make a profit without charging a fortune. I am sure 那 you understand his reasoning, he has an expensive lifestyle to finance as well as several dependent staff to pay. He has not completely ruled out making more in the future but not for a while 在 least. Here's hoping he does make more.

有对有错

秘密毛刺
祝大家新年快乐!希望大家喜欢我的 除夕后 我今年的前10-12个或13个(或更多)难题?放在一起很有趣-您同意我的选择吗?您是否认为所有难题都不应该存在?通过在帖子下方评论让我知道。对于新的一年(实际上是新的十年)的第一篇文章,我将缓慢而温和地开始,对木博士制作的今天3d开奖结果华丽的拼图进行小幅回顾, 埃里克·富勒。的 秘密毛刺 is a remake - 埃里克 has kindly agreed 那 there are a few classic puzzles 那 he (or others) have made over the years which 许多 newcomers to the puzzle world have never had a chance to play with or buy. This puzzle is a design 通过 马塞尔·吉伦(Marcel Gillen) (famous for the Chess pieces which have been reproduced beautifully 通过 花山 - 仍然可用 单独在这里)。 秘密毛刺的原始版本是在2002年制作的,数量非常有限(在我感到困惑之前)。当然,我无法抗拒美丽的毛刺,而且描述听起来很有趣:
Unique in 那 it's difficult in both assembly and disassembly, there are two locks inside the burr 那 interact much like Cutler's Ball Bearing Burr. Instead of steel bearings, 秘密毛刺 uses small wood rectangles
How can anyone resist a burr 那 has two separate hidden locking mechanisms? I had solved Allard's copy of the Ball Bearing Burr 在 a recent MPP and had found it interesting but not terribly difficult and wistfully wished 那 I had bought a copy. So when 埃里克 released these to the world, I jumped...quickly! I might also have bought a copy of Oskar's paperclips too (I have been trying to buy a copy of this one 在 auction for years).

我只是 无法抗拒Eric的另今天3d开奖结果重新发行!
奥斯卡的回形针
我是华丽木材的吸盘,并且有一些秘密毛刺可供选择-我立即住在令人赞叹的Bloodwood,Sapele和Walnut上(仅制作了13份)-仍然有几份在撰写本文时,Cherry,Walnut和Figured Maple版本的版本仍然可用。

This one arrived just before Xmas which helped defuse Mrs S' ire 在 yet another puzzle package. She knew 那 she was going to receive yet another nice handbag for Xmas and 我也不能抱怨我也收到一些木头碎片。

I set too immediately after our evening meal on Xmas eve (it is our tradition to have a classic swiss fondue which gives me a wonderful cheese buzz - Mmmmm!) I was almost disappointed 那 within a few seconds I had managed to remove the first piece without really doing much more than wiggle it all about a bit:

2个非常有趣的锁片
I had no idea how the puzzle locked, so I put it back together again and fiddled to lock it and then tried to work out what I had done to unlock it. Every time I had done it with just wiggling - 那 CANNOT be right! 埃里克 (and Marcel) doesn't do puzzles 那 open randomly. I was doing it the wrong way.

I kept the first piece out and explored the way it had been locked and, with a bit of turning about, I found a second set of locking pieces. Now 那 is very interesting...a small thought started to brew. I wonder whether the 2 mechanisms might interact in some way? What if I do this? Followed 通过 this?
啊!
Now 那 is rather clever! There is definitely a right way to solve this puzzle and it takes just a bit of thought to work it out. You cannot avoid solving it the wrong way first because 那 gets you enough information to then work out what should be done. If you have bought a copy then make sure 那 you don't just disassemble the whole thing after the initial random removal of the first piece - take the time to explore the 2 locks 那 埃里克 described. They interact and it is 那 which is the real puzzle 这里. Once you have worked it out then go ahead and completely dismantle the puzzle, scramble the pieces and 在 tempt a reassembly. Even this is not terribly tough but is still a lot of fun.

A 13 piece burr - or is 那 17 pieces?
I am certainly delighted 那 I bought this remade puzzle. 埃里克 has done his usual masterful job on the pieces and his choice of woods is fabulous. Remember 那 he has a couple of copies 仍然可用 现在。对于寻求高水平毛刺的人来说,这不一定是今天3d开奖结果难题,对于寻求良好探索的人,以及对它如何锁在一起的一些思考,这是今天3d开奖结果难题。有一种简单的方法(这是错误的),而一种正确的方法是美丽的。谢了哥们!

希望2020年将带来更多神话般的新玩具-我期望从 朱诺 明天到达,其中将包括他今年的第今天3d开奖结果顺序发现难题(仍然可用 目前)。尽管即使今年没有新的难题,但无论如何我还是有很多积压要做的事情!

再次-祝大家新年快乐。


2019年八月18日星期日

我在箱子上很烂!

是的,这是今天3d开奖结果盒子 看起来不太困难!
I am sure 那 the majority of you will recognise the box pictured above and you will all laugh 在 me when I say 那 I could not open it! For those who 不要马上认出它,这是伍德医生制造的毛刺, 埃里克·富勒. A few months ago he released a bunch of these in different woods and due to work pressures, I was not quick enough off the mark to get one of the more gorgeous sets. However, I was just able to buy a copy of the Cherry, Ash, Walnut and Birch set just before they all sold out and have to say 那 I am not in the least disappointed. It is simply gorgeous even in the more mundane wood choices. 埃里克 has put all of his usual magic into the manufacture of this set - the joinery is simply perfection itself and it looks beautiful. The lid lifts off to reveal a lovely ordered set of burr sticks which have been perfectly engraved with their piece number for selection according to the booklet of challenges.

27个漂亮的毛刺棒和今天3d开奖结果“填充物”
今天3d开奖结果人需要多少个burrsets?这是 有点尴尬地回答 - 在 the moment, I must say 那 在 least 4 is the correct number!

杰里·麦克法兰(Jerry McFarland)的“ 42件burrset”-亦称焦糖盒
314种固体毛刺以及许多 许多 额外的孔状毛刺!再加上杰里(Jerry)添加了今天3d开奖结果额外的棍子

终极毛刺-Jack Krijnen
从第1级到第8级的637个挑战

五级毛刺吴K先生
162个可能的5级装配

埃里克(Eric)用与我上面已经拥有的终极钻头完全相同的零件制作了这套琴。那我为什么要买呢?除了无法抗拒Eric的作品外,它还被修改为Pen-ultimate burrset。最终的组合是基于2x2x8的棒料制成的。由于解决方案期间的横向运动可能受到很大限制,因此每个摇杆上的额外长度使组装工作在某些地方更加困难。为此,埃里克(Eric)从2x2x制作了毛刺棒6 stock and to enhance the puzzling the set had been analysed 通过 the amazing 天才 那 is 肯·欧文 (check out his brilliant new blog 这里)。

So having established 那 I already have more six-piece burr challenges than I will ever be able to solve (have I told you all 那 I am rubbish 在 assembly puzzles?), the next question must be where is 那 booklet of challenges for 埃里克's set? Yes, I asked 那 too! I had not actually read the full description of the item before clicking buy and only after it arrived did I realise 那 this 毛刺et was also a box. Apparently, there is a hidden drawer in the box which contains a booklet of challenges - hence this is a box too. It is very well disguised but when looking and feeling the box closely it is obvious where the hidden drawer is and of course, it is locked tight. So no puzzling until I can open the box...GULP!

我从套装中取出所有的毛刺棒,欣赏它们,并在...内部寻找隐藏的机制!然后我意识到棍子0和红色棍子都是固体,因此今天3d开奖结果是多余的……还是吗?埃里克(Eric)不会只是为了在盒子里装好包装而额外加了一根棍子。在所有28个棍棒打包成今天3d开奖结果不错的7x4阵列之后,但是如果只有27个棍棒,则可以很容易地将其很好地排列成9x3阵列,不需要额外的棍棒。另外,为什么要用另一种(也相当华丽)的Padauk制成?很明显,其中嵌入了一块磁铁 这对于解锁抽屉至关重要。必须有今天3d开奖结果需要使用磁铁的隐藏机构。我开始探索用这种磁铁可以找到的东西,并且有几个非常不错的Aha!片刻。我发现了隐藏的磁铁,我发现可以通过在磁铁上使用磁铁来完成事情,然后我被卡住了!千古!在整个互联网上,我看到了益智的朋友打开他们的抽屉,开始困惑他们的毛刺,我 无法开始。我的痛苦之声蔓延开来,并受到其他人的鼓励,继续前进,而不是过分考虑。困惑仍在继续……但未成功。

Eventually, 埃里克 was on FB and saw 那 I was on-line. He sent me a message and asked what I had found and could do. I gave a hypothesis of what else I thought I ought to be able to do and he indicated 那 I was correct...but my set would not do 那. I was sorry to inflict pain on 埃里克 but his response was one of absolutely 高超 customer service, he told me 那 in my set I obviously needed a stronger magnet and the following day he posted out a replacement key-piece (no extra charge 在 all). A week later I received another stick with a MUCH stronger magnet embedded in it. I immediately put it to the test and the much-expected movement 那 I had been unable to perform with the smaller magnet was now easy for me. So I did it and tugged on the drawer and...and NOPE! Aaaargh! As I said, I am 垃圾 在盒子上。再一次,我花了几个晚上玩我的平常游戏,一次又一次地做同样的把戏,就像 疯子,期望在某些时候会有所不同。当然啦 didn't and I still could not play with my burrs! Eventually, I caved 在今天3d开奖结果nd asked 埃里克 for a bit of help, wondering whether there was another issue with my burrset (it is very common amongst us addicts to state 那 if we cannot solve a puzzle then it must be broken - 那 gets stated 许多 许多 times 在 the Midlands 益智派对).

埃里克确认 开头的内容超出了我的想象,并给了我今天3d开奖结果特别的但不是描述性的线索,我(令人惊讶地)理解了这些线索,但无法立即进行。然后他说了一些关键的话:
"Remember 那 I like to make things look like they 当他们这样做时不要动弹。”
Within a few moments of 那 I responded:
“该死!刚刚找到它!该死!那很好隐藏!!!”
I have to say 那 I feel 那 I got my money's worth out of this puzzle and 那 is before I even got to play with the burr sticks!

我的天啊!最后!
Now I was able to explore the set further. There was a nice Cubic Dissection logo sticker in the booklet and the booklet itself provided the full analysis 那 Ken had made of the Ultimate set with shortened sticks and also including the assemblies 那 do not end with solid burrs:

要解决许多挑战:

  • The Ultimate burrset with stick-length of 8 had 535 unique solutions with voids whereas the Penultimate set 这里 has 708 - 那 alone will take me most of the rest of my life!
On top of this, there are an enormous number of other assemblies possible which will provide interesting puzzling - potentially another 20,322! Homing in on the slightly more challenging ones, Ken's analysis states 那 there are 3,479 piece sets 那 require a minimum of 2 moves and a maximum of 3 moves to remove the first piece, 51 sets 那 require a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 5 moves for the first piece and 3 sets 那 require 5 moves.

该分析不仅是一项令人惊叹且非常完整的工作,而且在小册子中也进行了精美地阐述,并且只要您的视力良好(对我们的“老年”困惑者来说是今天3d开奖结果问题),那么这就是一项工作艺术以及令人困惑的奇妙资源:

最后!字体很小,但是很漂亮,并且终生存在拼图难题! Don't tell Mrs S!
最后,我能够挑战自己组装一些东西。正如您对埃里克(Eric)所期望的那样,毛刺棒绝对完美地契合在一起!玩这套游戏很高兴-我会组装一些,然后当我手上有更多时间时,将其存放起来供我退休。

组装了毛刺,立方解剖标贴自豪地粘贴在盖子的内部



仍未解决-可能是今天3d开奖结果盒子!
Finally, as proof 那 a puzzle is a box...Juno's 撞车 赢得了评委的评审团大奖后,现已售罄 日本设计比赛, was sold to me as a Sequential Discovery puzzle which I adore. However, 朱诺 insists 那 it is also a box which we have established today 那 I am truly awful 在 solving! He says:
"拼图有今天3d开奖结果内部空腔,它也被分类为拼图盒。为了使拼图的定义更清晰,我们将一条面包放在型腔中,它可以帮助您实现拼图的目标。"
面包是我之后的又一挖洞 乔治·贝尔 stated 那 a puzzle is a box if you can put a loaf of bread in it and there have been several of 朱诺's puzzles where he has had a 开玩笑 有了这个。几个月前,我收到了这份副本,当每个人都解决了我周围的问题时(包括我完全失明的朋友爱德华),我惊讶地看着,挑战几乎结束了,并在那里呆了几周。是的这绝对是今天3d开奖结果盒子-不是因为有面包,而是因为我完全无法解决它!我会继续努力,希望在一年结束之前就可以打开它-有些困惑需要我数月甚至数年的努力!谢谢,朱诺!
