A Plugged Well Sequential Discovery Puzzle by Brian Young
I'm making room for new puzzles and am searching for new owners for them.
A Plugged Well
I really enjoyed solving the Plugged Well. It was a nice solve and finding the barrel of oil is tricky!
Be careful on the re-assembly! Do NOT forget to insert the barrel!
Why I'm selling:
Due to their nature, Sequential Discovery puzzles do not offer any real re-solving fun for me. Once opened/solved, the puzzle itself has lost some of its magic for me.
As I'm trying to concentrate on some specifics I'll probably re-liquidate some of my boxes and SDs, as well as some other stuff over the next few months.

A Plugged Well was purchased second hand for about 200€. Original price down-under was 55€. Initial bid will start at 150€.
Original box is missing as well as the accompanied flyer. A PDF of the IPP solution flyer will be provided after the auction, on request.
Buyer will pay for shipping and 3% PayPal fees. Customs fees/VAT may apply.
The puzzle will only be shipped tracked and insured. The full price of the puzzle (incl. shipping) will be put on the customs forms!
International shipping will be expensive, as DHL has increased their prices recently.
As an estimate: shipping to the USA will cost 37€ for a packages up to 5kg! EU wide shipping will be 14€. If you worry about shipping costs, please ask beforehand, or check dhl.de for prices.
If the final price will be more than 500€, additional 14€ are required to increase the insurance.
Pouching/Sniping -> Relisting:
In case a change in winning bidder is being observed in the last 24h of the auction, the puzzle will be relisted with the old price as a starting bid.
This is done to discourage sniping/pouching in the last few seconds/minutes, as most users are in different time zones.
Please don't do this, as it means additional work for me and the other bidders. Multiple violations will place you on my blocked user list!
Make sure you know what you're willing to pay for this puzzle and just place that amount as your maximum!
Happy bidding and puzzling!!

[EDIT] I just learned that the End time of an auction can be extended. Therefore I will extend the end time, instead of relisting the auction, if a change in the winning bidder occures within the last 24h of the auction.
