This is a puzzle-oriented TCB 3.1 hold. Overall it is fairly difficult, but there are some relatively easy rooms near the beginning, and most of the rooms can at least be reached without solving too many of the harder ones.

Here's the latest BoyBlue creation, featuring mostly lynchpin-based puzzles, a sense of humor, clever "doors", and various surprises. I was going to write about the surprises, but then they wouldn't be surprises any more... so Enjoy! :)

By the way, this is a pretty difficult hold, especially the secret rooms. I'd suggest you have a good amount of experience with lynchpin puzzles and the quirks of TCB elements before you try and conquer this one.

The first level is not too hard. The others... well... you'll see. :)

I'm up to level 4, and quite enjoying it so far. It's fun, with all the lynchpin-quirk goodness one may expect from the architect, and slightly easier than his past submissions.

[preemptive 300 reference goes here]

It's fantastic how many great DROD holds there are. This is but one of many. Thank you, BoyBlue for keeping up the quality!

Completed. This hold contains awesome puzzles, especially ones on last level.

I enjoyed this hold a little more than other holds made by BoyBlue I played.

edit after a while: and mastered now, too. That 144-mud-mother room was evil, but doable, and actually turned out to be easier than it looked like. :)
