The object of this puzzle is to scramble up the 5 different colors and then organize them back to the same orientation that they started in. Unlike most rotational puzzles, the Geranium has all of the colors on the same plane.

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.

Crazy Unicorn – Black body

Crazy Unicorn - Black body

Crazy Unicorn – Black body The mf8 Crazy Unicorn Cube is a 3×3 shape-mod with 4 corners that can rotate, each of which includes a part of three edges and three centers. It also has a segment on each face that remains stationary. The additional moves allow the puzzle to be scrambled in more ways than a traditional 3×3.

The simplicity of jigsaw puzzles is deceptive. While the concept is very straightforward – find the pieces and fix them together – there is a surprising level of mental activity required to carry out the steps needed to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are required to undertake what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to an overall pattern. More importantly, solving jigsaw puzzles is a great work out for the brain and can actually have therapeutic benefits.
