"The Key Puzzle is a 2-dimensional version of the The Binary Burr. Goh Pit Khiam has been using BCPBOX and other programs to develop high-level burrs. When I came up wth the idea for the The Binary Burr, he quickly came up with this 2-dimensional puzzle which uses the same principle. This was my souvenir puzzle at the 24th International Puzzle Party." -Bill Cutler
