Roxanne's puzzle videos

Roxanne Wong is an extraordinary puzzle collector whose YouTube channel is crowded with reviews of puzzles by various ambitious designers throughout the world. A few are puzzles I've previously discussed or worked on.

George Bell's Dice Box
I built these hinged parts to George Bell's specifications, as described in an earlier blog post.

George Bell's Exploding Ball
George allowed me build my own Exploding Ball last year. In this video Roxanne exhibits a colorful version of it.

Air, by George Hart
This puzzle inspired my Rhombic Dodecahedron puzzle.  George Hart's web page shows examples of the pieces assembled and unassembled.

Cuburr is uniquely optimized for the SD300 build process, as described in an earlier post.


  1. You forgot the Rox box Scott. I didn't realize you made all these. I really should read you past posts again.

  2. Ah yes! But there isn't a video, is there? Today's topic was videos.

    I've never built a copy of George Hart's "Air" puzzle, although I built something rather similar yet ultimately different. He and I have been exploring similar ideas with these twisty shapes yet getting intriguingly different results.

  3. Well I can fix that! I think I have that puzzle :) fixed!

    I can't wait to see what you two come up with next.
