12 Bastards is a seemingly innocent 12 piece burr puzzle, but the puzzle is hiding something. Once the puzzler has a hour to inspect the workings of this puzzle he/she will discover the "dirty" secret.

This puzzle is actually a 15 piece puzzle! A simple 3 piece burr is framed by a 12 piece burr that completely encases it. both the interior pieces and exterior pieces conflict with each other.

A fine puzzle that is sure to entertain!
