About


Puzzles and brain teasers are in a niche industry that very few people know much about. We want to bring puzzles and brain teasers to the world so that everybody can enjoy the fun of playing with puzzles. We feel these three puzzles will do that. They are very unique made from anodized aluminum, so that they look extremely colorful, decorative and durable. Because they're made from metal, the feel of these puzzles is amazing. Just because they look amazing doesn't mean they're easy. All three puzzles are difficult to solve. 

Slideways is the least difficult. It's easy to take apart, but much harder to put back together.

Dirty Dozen and Lattice are both hard to take apart and hard to put together. The Lattice puzzle takes it to a whole new level. It is one of the most difficult puzzles we know.

You can play with all of the puzzles for hours. At first glance, it looks like they are made from one piece of metal, but on closer inspection you see all the separate pieces.

The Dirty Dozen and Lattice are unique in that they maintain their shape, until you know the first move.


When you get that first move, you can begin taking the rest of the pieces apart. These puzzles will give your brain a real workout. Your brain will need to use creative, alternative thinking patterns as you try to find the solutions. You will get hours and even days of entertainment. 

OUR STORY

Allan Stein started this company over 30 years ago. It all began with a line of 10 puzzles that he thought would be good to bring to the public and also for his own enjoyment. The first puzzles were made in Allan's basement out of coat hangers. They seemed quite crude at the time, but did work.

Over the years Puzzle Master has developed a website and a worldwide reputation in the puzzle community. We have the largest online inventory of puzzles available for sale in the world.

We have been networking and building a community in the puzzle world for many years. This includes making the joy of puzzling know to everyone old and young around the world. Allan travels worldwide attending puzzle conventions and meeting with designers and collectors from Japan, Israel, Australia, China, The USA, Germany, Czechoslovakia, and many other countries. Many of the high-end collectors often have thousands of puzzles in their private collection.

An important part of puzzles is that they are fun and entertaining. In addition to that they are great at enhancing alternative thinking and problem solving skills. 

For this Kickstarter project, we found two designers who produced fantastic puzzles. Jerry Loo from Singapore and Ray Stanton from the United States. Jerry Loo is the designer of Lattice and Dirty Dozen. Ray Stanton is the designer of Slideways. For 2019. We thought these would be the best three puzzles we could find for Kickstarter.

We want to bring puzzles to more people outside of our niche and feel these three puzzles Slideways, Dirty Dozen and Lattice are the best to start with. We would love your support so that more people can enjoy puzzles and get more involved in the puzzle world. 

                                                                       THANK YOU!

Risks and challenges

This is our first crowdfunding campaign but we have decades of experience manufacturing and selling puzzle to our niche industry. We have existing relationships with manufacturers and designers which allows us to produce amazing products for you, the end user. This is our first time taking manufacturing to this level. For this reason, like with any project, shipping times could be affected along with slight changes in the look of the product.
