The object of the Scramble Squares® puzzle game is to arrange the nine colorfully illustrated square pieces into a 12″ x 12″ square so that the realistic graphics on the pieces’ edges match perfectly to form a completed design in every direction.   The full 9-piece puzzle creates an enormous number of possible combinations in a 3 piece x 3 piece pattern, but only one possible solution! The package features an educational panel of information on the subject matter of the puzzle along with a trivia question. Puzzle art by Greg Huber.  Educational facts by Marshall Gavin.

Trying to see how pieces fit and re-assessing where they might go when they don’t fit is a good exercise in checking and re-evaluating choices. Each piece can only go in to one place so there is none of the compromising and trading-off that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to constantly re-evaluate their decisions, and teaches patience with the process as it is an integral part of the game.
