Hi all, in 3 weeks I'm off for Istanbul. I'll be there from the 20th~27th. As usual, I'm looking for puzzle shops and puzzlers who would like to meet up.
If you know of either, let me know. I'll be staying near the Istanbul Military Museum, Valikonağı Caddesi Harbiye, Şişli, İstanbul if that helps any.

Me too! :wink:

I did find some nice old wooden secret puzzle box (called Gumbet),
but that was in Kas (Antiphellus, just opposite Kastellorizo island).
I believe there are many more such boxes made in Bodrum, further up
in Turkey, and I will not be surprised if they exist in other places too.
Their quality (in my opinion) is 7/10.
