Difficulty Grand Master

This is one of the most difficult packing puzzles in our collection. Shipper's Dilemma includes twenty five z-shaped pieces that all need to fit neatly inside the box. If you thought packing your luggage for a week-long vacation was difficult, think again.

The Shipper's Dilemma is appropriate for advanced puzzlers only. There are millions of ways to get close enough to almost shut the lid, but only four known solutions. For those intrigued by the idea but not yet up for the challenge, we recommend starting with the Half Hour Puzzle or The Procrastinator.

Shipping & Returns

Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.

We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.

We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.

Return Policy

We will gladly offer a refund or store credit in exchange for any items returned within 30 days of the original order, as long as the items are still sealed in new condition. We cannot accept returns of opened or used items. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.
