"I am VERY excited to offer this design from Sam Cornwell of the UK. Sam has been publishing excellent puzzle ideas for several years in the IPP Design Competition. When I contacted him and asked if anyone had commercially made his puzzles, I was amazed when he said no. Accordingly, I present to you all the wonderful work of S. Cornwell! Tease is the first of several Cornwell puzzles I will be releasing this year. Sam uses tricky dimensions in many of his designs, by dividing the larger pieces into a much smaller common denominator. Instead of using the advantage of a smaller unit count to up the number of moves astronomically, he shows tasteful British restraint, and zings the solver with a surprising twist.

Tease is moderate in difficulty, yet fun to solve and displays very well. Five moves gets the first piece out, with several more to fully disassemble the construction." -Eric Fuller
