9784871876018: The Glass Puzzle Answer Book

Nobuyuki Yoshigahara was Japan's most celebrated inventor, collector, solver, and communicator of puzzles. When he died suddenly and unexpectedly on June 19, 2004, many of the solutions to his puzzles were in danger of being lost, as he was the only one who knew the solution. Therefore, this book of solutions to some of his puzzles is being kept in print to prevent these solutions from otherwise being lost. As a puzzle columnist, Nob was an active contributor to many journals and had monthly columns in various popular magazines including Quark. He penned over 80 books on puzzles. Perhaps best known as a puzzle inventor, he commercially licensed his designs, such as the Rush Hour puzzle game, to companies including Binary Arts (now known as ThinkFun), Ishi Press, and Hanayama Toys. He was also an avid computer programmer who used computers to help solve mathematical puzzles. Nob was an active participant in the International Puzzle Party, traveling the world to attend the annual event. In 2005, the puzzle design competition of the International Puzzle Parties was renamed the Nob Yoshigahara Puzzle Design Competition. In 2003, the Association of Game & Puzzle Collectors awarded Nob with the Loyd Award, for individuals who have made a significant contribution to the world of mechanical puzzles.
