Puzzletts in Seattle, USA also has them, I think for $32 each.

Last year I bought one in San Francisco in a shop located at the
Trocadero Center (probably misspelled). However I can't really recall the
name of the shop (Game-something), but I did find shops with the same name in
Carmel and Santa Barbera.

I think the last brochure I got from Ishi had some 5bys. Unfortunately I
can't find a copy. Anybody else?

Having seen mentioned this Ishi so many times I finally take the time to ask some
questions myself:

Does Ishi also sell puzzles by mail order overseas (i.e. in Europe,
especially in the Netherlands) or better: do they a distributor overhere ?
How can I contact them for a brochure ? Is this the same Ishi which sells

Does anyone have the address of Meffert in HongKong ?

Maybe it is good idea to make a list of company's, shops ordered by location etc,
