When I first heard about the really high level 18 piece burrs that had been designed by Jack Krijnen (Burrly Sane) I decided that I would really love to try one (in fact I don't have any 18 piece burrs at all). After contacting Jack himself (a delightfully helpful puzzler!) who told me he didn't have any left, I put out a call on the Puzzle World forums to see if anyone else had one available. I got a reply very quickly from Guillaume Largounez that he had a friend who made puzzles for him in wood and had made several versions of the Tiros burr designed by Alfons Eyckmans (if you follow the link then you can see that he is rather talented).

Allard about selling some puzzles and Allard was kind enough to let a few other collectors know. I bought the Drunken Dancing Fraulein designed by Stephen Chin and entered this year as his IPP31 entry in Berlin where it was in the top 10 voted by the puzzlers who attended. It is a beautifully turned puzzle box which I managed to solve quite quickly and will post a review when I can - it has a very ingenious mechanism!
I have also bought more toys from Bernhard Schweitzer, after his return from IPP31! I obtained:

That is it for the moment - watch out for future reviews!!
So as I said: "I am a puzzleholic".
BUT I don't actually want to break my habit! I do need to control it a bit before my wife divorces me since I am impinging on her shoe/handbag collection!!!
