FUNCTIONAL PUZZLES & DECORATIVE CUBES

 For a while now I've been designing and building wooden puzzle boxes inspired by the Hellraiser universe.  I'm a pretty big fan of the lore and love making wooden puzzles.  (I think I may also be a bit of a sadist since I LOVE watching people struggle to solve my puzzles, lol) 

So, In addition to the new deck boxes, I'm bringing you my puzzle boxes and decorative cubes at a discount for this campaign only!   So let's dive right in and discuss each of them.  (Without giving away the puzzles of course!)

  • Decorative Cubes - These are not functional and have no moving parts.  But they are lovely on display!  
These are NOT functional and have NO MOVING PARTS.  They are for display purposes only.

  •  Functional Puzzle Boxes - I have designed 4 unique puzzles in my series.  Each of the 4 is identical from the outside but solves a different way.  The title of each box is the only clue you get to help you solve the puzzles!  (Kidding....sort of.  Contact me if you give up on trying to solve the puzzles and I'll link you to the solution video.) 

1 - The Screw

My first attempt at a functional puzzle box inspired by the hellraiser universe was titled "The Screw".  Being functional got it a bit of attention and started me down the path of creating the rest of the series.

2 - The Grip

I wanted to make a new puzzle that looked and acted EXACTLY like my first puzzle...with 1 huge difference.  The solution...the type of puzzle...I wanted that to change.  A month or so later, the "Grip" was born!  Of all my puzzles, the Grip is the only one with enough space inside to actually place a treasure.  (It's been used to hold wedding rings during proposals quite a few times already.  Also, it's been used as a proper puzzle in D&D games.)  

3 - Pure Torture

I got caught up in trying to keep the exterior of each new puzzle identical to previous versions while changing the interior in such drastic ways that it makes people go a bit mental.  The 3rd puzzle in the series is titled "Pure Torture" and is NOT for the feint of heart. This box has been known to freak people out, cause them to throw it and run away screaming.  I won't tell you why....but if you are smart, you can find out easily enough.

My Pure Torture puzzle is normally VERY limited. (I only make 6 each year).  This campaign is a very rare occasion where that limit doesn't apply.  However, each backer is limited to ONE of this puzzle.  

4 - Unsolvable

The 4th and final in the series was more of a A-hole move on my part than anything else.  Even though it still has all the same moving parts and is identical from the outside....the unsolvable box can NOT be solved.  There is no panel that opens and no way inside without breaking the box into pieces.

Basic info about my puzzles.  

  • They are made by hand here in the shop.  
  • Every one is made by me and me alone.  
  • Every one is solved and locked before leaving. (You may THINK you got a defective box...you will be wrong.)
  • I lock them TIGHT for the first time you solve them.  It adds difficulty and can make some parts not move as easily at first.
  • You NEVER have to apply enough pressure to break the box in order to solve the puzzles.
  • If you upgrade to 2-tone, it is another difficulty increase as I will paint shut some of the seams and moving parts to cause you further suffering. (Please, give me your suffering)
  • Your suffering feeds my soul and will allow me to live forever...thereby giving me more time to create MORE puzzles in an endless cycle of torture and creativity.
  • The level of difficulty of any given puzzle isn't something that I can quantify.  There are too many variables.  How smart is the person solving it?  How lucky is that person?  How much puzzle experience does that person have?  I personally think they are all pretty easy to solve, but going by the number of people who have asked for the solution, I may be wrong.
Sizes range from 1.5 inches to 5.125 inches

Risks and challenges

As with all previous campaigns, this one is extremely low risk. I've completed several campaigns so far and have more than 1 supplier for my wood. At present I also have 2 machines to help me cut....so even if one breaks down I can keep trucking. I build live on my streams during the campaign and that helps fulfillment to be completed much faster than waiting until funds arrive to begin.
