Achet Chufu (Pyramid of Cheops) Please note that piece colors may vary from picture. This pyramid puzzle was René Dawir’s contribution to the Edward Hordern Puzzle Exchange that was held at IPP28 (International Puzzle Party) hosted in Prague in August of 2008. The goal of the puzzle:Build a 5×5 square pyramid using the 16 elements. The pieces are not allowed to touch each other with their inner angles. There are 3 different types of elements that include either 3 or 4 balls per element. Designed and made by: Marcel Gillen

The simplicity of the puzzles is misleading. Although the concept is quite simple – finding the pieces and repairing them together – an amazing level of mental activity is required to complete the necessary steps to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are necessary to achieve what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to a general pattern. More importantly, solving puzzles is great work for the brain and can have therapeutic benefits.
