The Ultimate Puzzle - This may be the best version you have ever seen.
You bring out puzzle pieces that are arranged into a rectangular frame. You remove one of the pieces, yet the remaining pieces still make up a perfect rectangle. Not only one piece, but you even remove a second, then the third piece. Each time when a piece is removed, you can easily reassemble the puzzle into a rectangle.
In the end, even after removing the pieces, the surface area of the entire block puzzle remains the same and still fits perfectly in the wooden frame it came out of.
More importantly, there are no secret moves involved in this effect. Nothing is added or stolen, and the reassemblages are clean.
You can also do the effect backward. Add three extra pieces to the puzzle, and the area remains the same.
The method is genius - based on mathematical principles, the area and volume are cleverly stolen after the pieces are overturned.
This is truly a masterpiece that you and your audience will love.
This video is pretty great to explain how this works, enjoy.

Quality craftsmanship along with a deceptive idea that is brilliant. Without knowing the secret it boggles the ordinary mind. Will be a conversation piece for everyone you show it too.
I have ordered TCC products previously (Puzzle Ultra and their original -and best- packet trick holders V:1) so I knew the quality would be beyond compare. The 3 stage routine is great,however I'm paranoid about people seeing the edges (Those who know,know!). So I leave the completed puzzle in the tray with 3 cubes left to one side and in view. When people ask about the puzzle I go into my script about my girlfriend training me up to fill the food cupboard more efficiently on shopping day. I turn out the pieces and then complete the puzzle,with the 3 cubes now included. Proving that I can store tins and boxes more efficiently now,thanks to my girlfriend! Props are well made and will last a lifetime. Thanks TCC.
This is a lovely version of the Winston Freer puzzle. It looks beautiful and works perfectly. One nice aspect is that it's easy to do the secret move simply by turning over the frame and dumping the pieces out. Then, only a few have to be turned back over.
You may also want to attach nice-looking number stickers onto the pieces to make it easier to remember which ones to shift when.
Overall, a great price for a lovely piece of magic
Superb puzzle. Probably even better than the Rolls Royce from John Rogers. This is beautiful wood and perfectly constructed. Less chance of breaking . The puzzle is modelled on Winston Freer, the best method of area puzzles by far, in which you achieve 3 additions or substractions. Interestingly, there is no typical tile markings, so you cannot say there are 63 tiles ( 9 x 7 which is typical of most of these puzzles). The cost of doing this is that the pieces can only be brought together in the 3rd phase. Without the "tiles" as with this wooden puzzle, the pieces can be apposed in all 3 phases, so it is potentially an advantage. The pieces are not marked with numbers 1-10, but you can add your own stickers or just leave it blank once you are familiar with the pieces and workings. Properly presented, this is one of the most mind boggling magical puzzles. I cannot recommend the TCC version enough at the current price.
If you are looking for the absolute best version of the Winston Freer puzzle...this is it! Best quality. Worth the price.
Of course, this is a very simply puzzle, the minor "trick" notwithstanding. Given to someone to solve, it's not like they are going to miss that feature :-). But still, something to occupy their kid while we talk. Well made, nice finish. You can leave it out to generate some curiosity.
Beautiful made piece. I will treasure this one for the rest of my days. Thank you.
Good packaging, excellent product
What an extraordinary puzzle!
The material is of excellent quality and the method really bluffing.
Let me show you my presentation with a mini suction cup. This allows most of the pieces to be left in the frame and even tilted the frame during the presentation.
On the other hand, sorry not to reveal the story that illustrates what is happening.
