After observing my puzzle collecting obsession over several decades, my wife suggested that I design a puzzle of my own. Over several years, she continued to suggest that I design a puzzle. There’s a name for a spouse that continues to make the same suggestion over and over, but it’s not coming to me at the moment.
As any life-loving spouse would do, I eventually took my wife’s advice and started to design a puzzle. Early on, I decided on creating a cubic dissection interlocking puzzle. It ended up consisting of 5 pieces that create a 4x4x4 cube with no externally visible voids and a complexity of 3.1.2. Not very difficult, but a great design for a prospective new puzzler to attempt.
My wife SUGGESTED that it be called The Nagging Wife, which seemed appropriate at the time.
