Puzzle Booklet – Hexagon to Two

Puzzle Booklet - Hexagon to Two

Puzzle Booklet – Hexagon to Two These booklets are produced in Hungary by hand in limited editions; their contents are made of laser cut wood. The Hexagon to Two has two challenges:  Use the pieces to fill the two smaller hexagon frames inside the booklet.  Fit all the pieces into the larger hexagon frame inside the booklet. The Hungarian mathematician Farkas Bolyai proved that any two polygons with the same area can be dissected into each other.  This puzzle beautifully shows an extension of this theorem.  Here, three polygons are dissected into each other. Cleverly designed with an attractively innovative book cover.  Solution is included. Made by Péter Gál.

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.
