It has been reviewed by Allard here - I am sure that the version I saw at the puzzle party was not this one.
About a week later my new stash arrived and I was more than pleased to see the extra puzzle. The look and quality of this puzzle is definitely up to Wil's usual standard. It consists of a nice wooden box with a lid that can slide on. Within the box there are 8 blocks of a lighter wood of varying dimensions in 2 layers. Looking fairly closely shows a very small gap on one side but very little "wiggle room"! On the lid is an extra block made from a darker wood held in a small frame - this block acts as a handle to help slide the lid on or off. The aim is to repack all the blocks within the box but include the 9th darker block with it. Looking at the picture at the top it looks impossible - there just doesn't appear to be enough space at all. I tipped the blocks out in the hope that there would be more "wiggle room" to possibly make this puzzle a little easier. As you can see below the 2nd layer of blocks have exactly the same x & y dimensions as the top layer - they are just a different thickness. My heart sank a little when I saw this!
