Here is another really clever wooden puzzle that was very kindly sent to me by Oy Sloyd Ab in Finland, and it is called Capital H:
Capital H (and several other of Sloyd's designs) was thought up by Vesa Timonen, a brilliant puzzle designer who has come up with many great puzzles, including one of my favourites; the Cast Loop by Hanayama, but it is actually made by Sloyd themselves.
It is comprised of seven wooden pieces. Just like the Raketti that I reviewed last week it is also made from birch wood, which I find has a really nice feel to it.
The goal of this puzzle is to make a capital letter 'H' using all of the seven pieces provided that you can see in the above photo. I won't lie, I found this to be quite a hard puzzle, it took me several days of on-and-off puzzling to solve it, and I did have to smile when I did eventually find the solution, it is very clever. Sloyd rate this puzzle as a level 5 out of 5, and I think that's a pretty reasonable rating. As always though I don't want to go into too much detail and spoil it for any of you, but trust me when I say that considering the price is so cheap (about €7) you really do get your money's worth here!
Once again this puzzle was very kindly sent to me by the lovely people at Oy Sloyd Ab in Finland, and you can order this puzzle (and many many others) directly from them. And honestly I cannot praise them enough, they are a pleasure to deal with!
