NEW Fascinating Wooden Puzzles and Games at!

Frik-n-Frak's Curio Shack
...adds more than a dozen NEW intriguing products!

As mentioned in our previous entry, we have recently added 15 NEW products to our already extensive selection of wooden puzzles, brain teasers, mind benders and educational games!

In our previous blog entry, we took a look at SHUT THE BOX - the ultimate in world famous bar and tavern games, FOUR SQUARES PUZZLE - a handsome four piece wooden packing puzzle and the delightful 3 PIECE BURR - a new FAVORITE of Frik-n-Fraks!

This time, lets take a look at a few more of the NEW Wooden Puzzles that are available at Frik-n-Frak's . . .

    This is by NO MEANS a "new" puzzle! Although new to Frik-n-Frak's Curio Shack, Pentominoes have been around for a very long time! They are among the most popular wooden games chosen for use in the educational field as they encourage the use of one's imagination and stimulate creative thinking.

    Some of the oldest polyform puzzles first formed as chessboards. An urban legend tells of the famous puzzler, Henry Dudeney, who in a course of a disagreement while playing chess, broke the chessboard over the head of his opponent. By remarkable chance, the result was 12 pieces each made up of 5 chess squares. With a bit of thought, it was discovered that the 12 pieces could be pieced back together to form a full chessboard. The pieces of the board were, in fact, the 12 pentominoes pieces.

    Many people are able to look at these 12 different wooden shapes and identify letters in the alphabet: I,L,P,T,U,V,W,Y,Z. The letter "F" looks like it had a bit of an accident and the letter "N" takes a little imagination.

    If you think building blocks is kid's stuff, try to build the original square pattern that the puzzle is delivered to you in. Try to build a rectangle size 6x10 blocks. Although there are 2339 solutions to the 6x10 rectangle, you'd be proud to find just one! A 5x12 rectangle has 1010 possible solutions! A 5x4x3 Cube has 3940 possible solutions, but there are only 264 possible solutions for a 6x5x2 cube. When you're up for the ultimate challenge, try to find 1 of only 2 possibilities for building a rectangle size 3x20!

    Solid Pentominoes are a must have for any puzzler. They offer an endless variety of challenges at many different levels! The Solid Pentominoes are in stock and available HERE.

    The Salvadore String Game is a Classic Disentanglement Puzzle. Also known as the Mouse Maze, Rat Trap and various other names, this is another of the more popular wooden games that we've recently added. Not only popular, it's a tough disentanglement puzzle!

    The object is to get the mouse (the little wooden ball) and the string through the hole and ring maze and completely off the puzzle. One wrong move and you've made the job even tougher! Talk about a tangled mess!

    The Salvadore String Puzzle displays very nicely in its upright position thanks to a handsome wooden base. Typically, this puzzle is offered without the base. Our version makes it perfect for a desk accessory or coffee table puzzle!

    The Salvador String Puzzle is delivered expertly packaged with a puzzle solution diagram. It can be ordered HERE and shipped to you within 24 hours!

    The AJ Puzzle is a LARGE 6 inch interlocking burr. It's just slightly smaller than our new TAVOR Puzzle, but still larger than most wooden games in its class. Its 12 wooden pieces, when properly assembled, form an octahedron that surround a wooden sphere. The AJ Puzzle is a good looking chunk of geometry that will display very nicely in your office or game room!

    Once you decide it's time to stop looking at it, it's time to get to the challenge! First, you must disassemble the 12 pieces to remove the ball from the structure. Once this task has been completed, try to put it all back together again! Be sure your calendar is clear as this is NOT an easy brain teaser!

    As with ALL of our NEW Wooden Puzzles, a solution sheet is provided with its delivery. To see a picture of the AJ Puzzle or to place your order, click HERE!

We'll continue to examine more of the NEW Wooden Puzzles in future postings! Keep an eye peeled to this blog!

========Latest Profile==========
Energy & Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY)
Current Price $0.15

Recognize this undiscovered gem which is poised to jump!!

Please read the following Announcement in its Entierty and
Consider the Possibilities
Watch this One to Trade!

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stock appears poised for growth! This one will not
remain on the ground floor for long.

Keep Reading!!!!


-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This stock will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
