There is one puzzle I have designed that is not on the website or in our catalog, yet I consider it one of the very best things I've ever done: the Mensa logo puzzle. It is about 8x8", lasercut acrylic, the familiar round-cornered black square with embedded yellow M and globe. It comes in a nice white gift box with instructions (no solution) and is available to Mensans only. Its 16 pieces (based on combinations of equilateral triangles from size 2 through 6) form not only the logo but also the number 50 (for the 50th anniversary) and the numbers 22 (for Chicago Mensa's 22nd HalloweeM party). It is $39 postpaid, and 10% of the proceeds go to MERF.
