Broken Bricks

Broken Bricks is a nice and fun packing puzzle and this copy also happened to be the last one owned by Russian puzzle designer and maker, Vladimir Krasnoukhov. I bought it from him during the IPP34 Puzzle Party.


Measuring about 7.5cm square and 4.5cm tall, this is surprisingly a seriously heavy puzzle, with a very thick-walled box frame and six pieces made from a combination of Wenge, Bubinga, Paduak and Buche woods. Overall pretty decent construction, fit and finish throughout.

The box has curved edges and and detailing on the sides and the contrasting coloured pieces have diagonal cuts on each of them. 2 solutions exist for this puzzle which is of fairly moderate difficulty.
