Product Info

Designer Andrew Crowell writes about his puzzle:

"TIC Vault is a hybrid puzzle, combining Sequential Discovery puzzle box aspects with a Turning Interlocking Cube (TIC) puzzle.  The TIC portion has a unique feature, but should not frighten anyone, it just requires a bit of logic.  There are 2 goals to the puzzle. First, is to unlock the vault.  Second, is to find your unique ID number.  because each puzzle will have a unique ID number associated with it.

I am not sure how I would categorize the number of steps involved in solving this puzzle.  If I include every step along the way including building the TIC, it could easily be over 30 steps... But I think it might be better to think of it in terms of sections and there are around 10 completely separate sections that have to be solved.
This design is without a doubt the most complex thing I have ever created. It weighs almost 2 pounds (about 1kg for you people who use logical units), and there are 44 separate pieces, 51 magnets, and dozens of moving parts."

Fellow puzzle designer Boaz Feldman rated this puzzle as one of the best finds of 2023:
"A remarkable 3D-printed sequential discovery puzzle that defies categorization. Is it a TIC? An SD? Why not BOTH? Unraveling its mysteries was a delightfuljourney, akin to a child's experience in a candy store, brimming with joyous revelations."

Just an amazing well built puzzle. When you hear all those magnets clicking at the same time- happy days. Not surprised it was at the IPP
