COMMENTS: As mentioned elsewhere, I enjoy odd shaped burr puzzles. Some of them are less fun though when built...they're shaky or don't move or interact well. The Le Taupe by Alfons didn't have that problem. Movements was tight and satisfying, with each piece sliding effortlessly once you discerned the direction of the next move. It was just a lot of fun to maniuplate and solve, so when Alfons emailed me the big brother design I knew immediately I'd make it. I used the same woods in Le Grand Taupe, but switched them to give a nice symmetry to the set. The level 14 solution is also a nice step up in difficulty. If you have the first, I highly recommend grabbing the second!

Construction of this puzzle is wonderful, with a nice smooth fit.
