The Tomb of the Penta Cube

The Tomb of the Penta Cube

The Tomb of the Penta Cube A packing puzzle that presents a very interesting property: no matter which one of the 17 pieces you remove, the remaining 16 pieces completely fill up the packing space. Thus, 17 challenges are provided: put 16 pieces into the packing frame, removing one each time. Designed by Niek Neuwhal and made in Samena wood 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.
