|The Sudo-Koala Puzzle|
For the 27th International Puzzle Party, held in Australia in August 2007, Kate designed a visual pun for the theme of "Sudoku" and "Koala" and presented it to the attendees with a long list of puzzle challenges.
The 36 little laser-cut gray bears in each set (a by-product of our popular Bear Hugs sets) had been hand-painted with koala faces, and each had a colorful number on its chest. There were 6 sets of each number from 1 to 6. Only a limited number of 85 sets were made. Sorry, we don't have any for sale. Of course, we do have our original Bear Hugs and Bear Hugs Jr. available without limit.
Acknowledgments Notwithstanding the plentitude of gray bears that we had stockpiled as "free" raw material to use up, the Sudo-Koalas were arguably our most expensive IPP puzzle to date and a huge team effort. The heroic contributions of all are deeply appreciated. Thanks, guys!
