Inaba Naoki's Puzzle Laboratory

Post by Mephisto » Thu 22 Sep, 2011 2:37 pm

Inaba Naoki is one of the most creative puzzlesmiths today. On his Website "Inaba's Puzzle Laboratory" ( you can fiind more than 400 different puzzle types and 4~5 puzzles of each type.

Most instructions are in Japanese only; only a few puzzles have also English instructions. In the last two weeks I translated ~50 puzzle instructions to English and German, you can find it here:

I hope that I will find the time to continue this project; i.e. translate more of Inaba's puzzles. It will be difficult to translate them all, because Inaba probably creates new puzzles faster than I can translate it :-)

Note that I don't speak Japanese and I'm not a natve English speaker too - two sources for mistakes. If you find an error please notify me.

[Not sure whether this fits better to the rules section or the links section in this forum – maybe both.]
