Yuu Asaka's new puzzles!

Post by balsam2 » Sun Feb 24, 2019 3:13 am

I just recently ordered a few puzzles from Yuu (these were discussed extensively on another thread). He mentioned that he was about about to release two more puzzles.

With his permission, I'm sharing pictures of the new puzzles. They look... interesting...

I'm not sure when they will be officially released, but I'm very excited - - his puzzles are really fun and interesting.

Just got these puzzles in the mail along with wave 7

Solved wave 7 in a few minutes, but the new ones are both taking longer than any of his others (including 29!)

I won't say much more (don't want to provide any spoilers), but I highly recommend picking up both of these puzzles. But if you haven't solved any of Yuu's other puzzles before, start with 19/29, as those are the most delightful.

One more thing-- I noticed a certain very popular YouTuber solved jigsaw 29 last week and so the puzzles have been in short supply (and are now sold out at puzzlemaster). If you want to order, I recommend ordering directly from Yuu- substantially lower prices even after factoring in international shipping from Japan.

My order of the two new ones should be in its way, once Yuu has the new packaging ready.
And can't agree more: order directly from Yuu

What's this 'new packaging' everyone is talking about? Is he moving to something fancier/more branded as he becomes more established?!

Don't know. He wants 200¥ per packaging (so nothing too fancy). My package is on its way.

Awesome- they look great!

Just solved Wave 5- It has a superb aha moment, on-par (in my opinion) with 19/29!
I also did Wave 7, which was fun, but not nearly as hard as the others.
Cloud 9 is a beast. I've spent a bunch of time on it and so far made no progress
