"Sources say that the late Mr. Wolfgang Schneider invented this packing puzzle in the early 90's. The 21 pieces pack into the box with an extremely tricky and non-intuitive solution. I cannot stress enough that this is a very very difficult puzzle, requiring not only patience but also unconventional thinking to solve. Mr. van der Poel has informed me that he purchased this puzzle from Mr. Schneider and that it was not in fact invented by Mr. Schneider, but rather brought to market by him. Thank you for the clarification William! As it turns out, the actual designer is unknown." -Eric Fuller
