"I noticed a lot of interesting board and stick burrs coming out on Ishino's site so I decided to make batch of them. After looking at a couple dozen designs I chose six for their representation of the various concepts and levels of difficulty. Four Stick Eight is a whopper when it comes to difficulty, having a level 21 unique solution. This is a very difficult and confusing puzzle. Even with directions it can get tricky! The four woods display nicely once the puzzle is assembled, and overall I like this design a lot. Construction is excellent, with close tolerances but plenty of room to maneuver." -Eric Fuller
