And the Envelope Says ...

Earlier today, we dropped off all of the envelope puzzles (for backers at the Thinker level and above) at the USPS. Depending on where you live, you could receive your package as soon as Monday. We would love to see some unwrapping photos or videos. If you do one, please post a link here or on our Facebook page, but please try to avoid spoilers of the solutions at the beginning.

It feels great to finally have the last physical component of this Kickstarter campaign behind us, but it feels even better because we think you'll really like the puzzles. We may not know shipping packages, but we know puzzles. What follows is a summary of what you'll find in your envelope so that you can double-check the contents. If you are missing something, let us know ASAP and we'll get you a replacement component. Difficulty levels are on a 5★ scale.

The envelope is a 9"x11.5" white stay-flat mailer. There is nothing puzzly about the envelope, but hopefully it has not been bent or folded. If you have a pet cat, dog, or rabbit, they may enjoy this puzzle.

Fold-up puzzle: ★★ by Parker Lewis. This is something large that you can fold into a 3D shape, plus a double-sided 8.5x11 sheet with instructions and clues.

Overlay puzzle: ★★★★ by Bruce Leban. This is in a small manila envelope that is sealed with a sticker. Inside the envelope, there is a double-sided instruction card plus sixteen (16) pieces that you will overlay to solve. The 16 pieces are all different, though two may appear identical if you do not have them oriented properly (the less shiny side goes up; proper orientation will make solving easier).

Assembly puzzle: ★★★★★ by Roy Leban. This is in a Ziploc bag that has been divided into three compartments. In each compartment, you will find a flat shape. The three pieces are all different. There is also a separate single-sided instruction card for this puzzle. This is the bonus "thank you" puzzle we added, a special, limited edition of an unreleased physical puzzle by Roy.

      I got my puzzles yesterday! Thanks so much! I wasn't expecting them to be so well put together.
      Looking forward to the end of the Year Of Puzzles... and would love to see another year!
