jpgamesltd.co.uk is also selling Strijbos on eBay (https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/m.html?_ssn= ... s&_sacat=0). £10 higher than on their Web site. Which in turn is slightly lower than sloyd.fi... And Mr. Puzzle's even less, although for US customers the shipping kills.

Just gotta shop around! Best is direct from Wil, of course, but it can be tough to get his attention, and catch him with things in stock.

Just solved the Revenge Lock. Totally awesome, as all other Strijbos puzzles I have so far.
Absolutely top quality materials and craftsmanship. I especially like the aluminium puzzles he makes.
The Revenge Lock aka The Wanderer is no exception. It feels like a very well made and hravy duty puzzle. Solving it is a great experience. It is quite hard to open, and put back together.
As always, highly reccomended. Contact Will himself to buy one. It might save you some cash. I say ‘might’, because there is also the risk of you ordering some more puzzles from his list.

Now, back to indigo...

Can I also receive his email address so I can get on his mailing list?

Thank you!


I have sent you a PM.


So, I received the First Box from MrPuzzle and I have to say it is definitely harder than I expected. I've been hands on for the last week or so for a total of about 3 hours and I must be missing something obvious. LOL very entertaining and frustrating. :)

Same here. I am not getting any further with the first box so far.
Great puzzle by Will, as always.

Fantastic! I can't wait for mine to get here. Should have gotten it first? Wanderer was good too though

First Box is epic. You get it open and you see that it's only a couple of parts, but oh man, deducing where they are, how they move, if they interfere with each other and if so, how and in what order... All with only a couple of holes to peer into. Fun.

At least you can just put it back together, unlike the Wanderer!

First box is really good! Took me awhile to figure it out and I couldn't believe how simple it really is. Keep us updated with your progress!

I thought part of the Wanderer was putting it back together. Or are you saying that’s a crazy hard challenge?
