Theseus Cube

Theseus Cube

Theseus Cube A fine-quality packing puzzle designed by Bernhard Schweitzer. The objective is to assemble all six different pieces into the cube shape shown. This puzzle includes Philos’ trademark cover, which features a hole to display the finished puzzle while holding the pieces in place. Designed by Bernhard Schweitzer 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 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.
