The QiYi 48 Numbers Klotski puzzle is an interesting new take on the original Klotski puzzle design. This version features magnetic pieces to make for a fun, satisfying solve experience.
Please Note: These are quite heavy when shipping and may drastically increase shipping prices if multiple are ordered (or with lots of cubes).

- QiYi 48 Klotski Puzzle (7x7)
These Qiyi Klotski are by far the best sliding puzzles, I have ever tried. Would like to get the other Qiyi Klotski puzzles, but looks as if I will have to wait for kewbz to get them in.
I got this along with the 35 puzzle. They are both really enjoyable to solve as you can do them intuitively. Even non cubers would find it fun.
The magnets under each tile are medium strength so they don't ruin the experience (but strong enough so if you turn the puzzle upside down the tiles won't fall off)
Tip: for the last 2 rows, solve them vertically so 36 - 43 first then 37 - 44 :)))
This puzzle was a bit of an impulsive purchase for me, but I don't regret it. One thing I will say is that if you are planning to get a Klotski puzzle, the bigger the better. They are all pretty easy, especially if you're fluent in figuring out puzzles already. However due to the last stages they are not trivial and so there is some challenge.
The quality of the puzzle itself is excellent, the pieces are basically not held in place except by the virtue of being surrounded (basically if you turn the puzzle upside down all the numbered pieces will fall out) which means that movement is extremely smooth and effortless. To avoid annoying issues such as pieces misaligning, QiYi have added subtle magnets to every piece which makes the movement pretty satisfying and keeps things where you want them.
So in conclusion I would highly recommend this, just keep in mind it is pretty easy if you're into twisty puzzles, and also it is bigger than you'd expect. I would estimate 30x30x30 cm in dimension.
