Fun little set, just wanted to resolve the last error NH AC AM -> NH AG AM Thanks to Mikko above for resolving the others :)
This set is a lot of fun and handsomely crafted. The wide number of possible configurations is amazing, and soon teaches the solver to think about how complex the filling of a "simple" space can be. One suggestion for new owners is to begin a notebook on the solutions, because although the puzzle includes the possible combinations of pieces, it does not give final orientation, nor the correct sequence of construction. This box set cannot fail to satisfy the most ardent puzzle fan, and would make a great gift. I wish someone had given this set to me long ago.
Great set! It has 5 errors in the tasks: NH EA DM has 57 units (should have 56) -> NH EA BM, MN IC BK has 58 -> MM IC BK MG BH MG has 58 -> MG BH MC JM EC DM has 57 -> JM EC BM NH AC AM has 54 -> yet to be (re)solved ... or if someone has better information, hit me with an email. 1 task to go... - mixa
