"The official name is "The Five Minute Puzzle That Might Take Longer". I've been wanting to make this since I played with it during the IPP29 design competition. The designer was coy, and I didn't receive permission until Nick vouched for me...so after long ado, here it is! 5MPTMTL is a tricky little guy, with a parity issue that I'm not smart enough to explain. Since it took me (a lot) longer than 5 minutes to solve, I suppose I'm not smart enough to decipher it either. Thankfully I am smart enough to make it, and the result turned out pretty well." -Eric Fuller
