Media: Jon Carroll's Column 專欄報道

On July 15, 2008, popular columnist Jon Carroll of the San Francisco Chronicle published a column about the Chinese Puzzles exhibition and announced that it would open "next Tuesday" (July 22). However people started arriving on July 15 while we were still busy installing it! Some visitors came long distances, so we managed to give them a quick "preview."
Read Jon Carroll's article, Ingenious Pieces.

Chinese Puzzles: A Video Documentary 中國古代益智遊戲:春节央视十台节目

These two videos are excerpted from a program that aired on national television in China on Chinese New Year in 2008. The program was in Chinese, so I added the English subtitles. The first video is about Linked Rings Puzzles, and the second one is about Burr and Sliding Block Puzzles. The man you see below is Ruan Genquan, inventor of many "ingenious rings" puzzles.
