“A good puzzle, it’s a fair thing. Nobody is lying. It’s very clear, and the problem depends just on you.”
Erno Rubik

The very first article on PuzzleScore was on the Amber Box from Ugears. Since then, we have reviewed many other Ugears models and even shot a video for our YouTube channel with the full assembly of Pneumatic Engine.

We truly love Ugears, the Wooden 3D Puzzles, their motion and a steampunk aesthetic is inspiring.

So, of course, we were super excited to see that Ugears releases many more brand-new 3D wooden models in 2020 and decided to share those with you.

There are 7 amazing new models from Ugears with great variety so everyone will be able to find something special for themselves.
