Die 5 Elemente - Mini

Die 5 Elemente – Mini This is a smaller version of the Die 5 ELemente.  This puzzle consists of five different shapes in five different wood colors. Designed by Siebenstein-Spiele founder Jürgen Reiche, the initial challenge is to assemble the puzzle such that there are no tiles of the same color in any row or column. For the additional challenge, arrange the tiles such that there are no tiles of the same color or symbol in the same row or column. Made in five woods by Siebenstein-Spiele. Based in Munster, Germany, Siebenstein-Spiele was founded in 1992. Although the company is mainly known for board games, Siebenstein-Spiele also makes many wooden puzzles, several of which have been designed by company founder Jürgen Reiche. NOTE: Wood colors may vary.

The simplicity of jigsaw puzzles is deceptive. While the concept is very straightforward – find the pieces and fix them together – there is a surprising level of mental activity required to carry out the steps needed to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are required to undertake what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to an overall pattern. More importantly, solving jigsaw puzzles is a great work out for the brain and can actually have therapeutic benefits.
