Chest of Hundreds

Chest of Hundreds This puzzle consists of nine differently-sized rectangular prisms, each of which has numbers from 1 to 54. In order to solve the puzzle, the pieces must be assembled such that the numbers on each face add up to 100. Designed by Georg Pfäffinger and made in Beech by Philos. Philos is a German puzzle manufacturer that started in 1996 as a manufacturer and distributor of toys. They make a wide variety of wooden puzzles, as well as some less common strategy games, playing cards, and dice.

Trying to see how the pieces fit and re-assessing where they can go if they do not fit is a good exercise to check and re-evaluate the choices. Each piece can only come in one place, so there is no compromise and negotiation that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to continually re-evaluate his decisions and learns to be patient with the process because it is an integral part of the game.
