As the title reads, this is coming to HK this year. October 5th through the 7th. Plaza Hollywood in Diamond Hill for any locals who read this and don't already know.

Well, this year Kim asked yet again if Michael and I would put some of our toys on display and after the back and forth about locked display cabinets we both agreed to do so. From the 27th of September through the &th of October you can see many of Michael's hand made puzzles along with a few of the mass produced ones he's done. You can also see a bit over 100 of my collection. Mostly twisties, but a few burrs and a few other bits and bobs.

This year, the organizers did a bang up job of getting publicity together for the event. Today I'm going to give you a few of the photos that have shown up around the city:

There is also a nice piece in the Apple Daily newspaper. and here

I've been blogging about some of our experiences over the past couple of days.

As more of the media bits come out I'll add them to here. Of course, I'm kind of having to be there for bits and pieces of the competition so I'll let you know how that goes as well.

I've merged the two topics together. They are essentially the same. My initial post has links to the online version and the videos. Just go click on those!

Enjoy the google translate and the continued error. (see if you can spot it)
