Kevin Sadler writes about Lucia:
“Another incredible design showing the skills of Alfons. This seems to be something new from him. I have seen him design a number of interlocking cubes and various burrs over the years but I have not really seen him spend much time on a rather special and enjoyable type of 6 piece burr. These have the sticks based on a 3x3x8 voxel grid which allows the construction of the obstructing marts to be much more intricate and more like a maze to navigate. The first one like this was the Dracula from the last release. This has been beautifully crafted from Acacia with a lovely grain. The exploration is fun and with a level 10.3.2 the disassembly is fun without being too difficult. For those of you with some real burr skill, I definitely recommend scrambling the pieces and after a break attempting a reassembly. It is tough but even I managed it with only a medium struggle.”
This puzzle was crafted in Europe with absolutely fantastic quality. Each of the puzzles of Pelikan design are unparalleled in their class! Every piece of the puzzle is precisely cut and very well made; you cannot find its equal anywhere else. The diversity in wood makes each puzzle a unique masterpiece.
