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.
