Take apart and reassemble the pieces.
A traditional 6-piece burr puzzle, beloved for over a century! The plain-seeming exterior of this burr belies the mysteries within. While one may pickup and disassemble a simple burr in seconds, the toughest burrs flummox even hard-core puzzle lovers. This broad range of challenges has kept burr puzzles in the forefront of puzzle collections for decades. Yamato Block is part of a series of small 6 piece metal burr puzzles made by Grave Raven. Each puzzle in the series appears identical when assembled, but each variant is made up of a different combination of pieces. Grave Raven has designed their burr pieces to interoperate not just with the other 5 pieces in the puzzle you purchase, but with ANY piece they produce in the same series! This means you can start your collection with a single burr puzzle, and add individual pieces or entire sets later, assured they will all fit together. Yamato Block – While the origin is unknown, this design was once sold in Japan but has been spotted frequently in other venues. Will you be able to reassemble it?Note: Contains pieces (001, 188, 824, 975, 1024, 1024) These burrs use “6 mm series” pieces, which means each little ‘cubie’ is nominally 6 mm center-to-center.
