Product Description

Amazon.com

No doubt about it: Pentominoes is like a Mensa test from Hades. It's as if they took a typical I.Q. exam, ditched all the "Hat is to head as glove is to... " and scrambled word stuff, and left you with all the spatial shapes questions. The equipment is diabolically simple: 12 three-dimensional polygons fashioned out of heavy oak, which are stored in a felt-bottomed oak frame. The enclosed booklet challenges solvers to use these pieces--which resemble anything from a plus sign to the letter L--to replicate the 54 designs and patterns shown on its pages, things like a 3-D pyramid and a 2-D rectangle. The fiends at Square Root Games magnanimously provide five solutions to the 54 challenges; if you want the other 49, you have to send them $5. --Tony Mason

Our daughter asked for Pentominos for Christmas. She later told me they have
plastic multi color ones and that's what she thought she'd get but likes these.
Plus, they'll last forever in wood! Maybe check in with your child on colored
or wooden prior? But great product!

We love pentominoes! This is a great set and comes with a small puzzle book. The puzzle book has a few answers in the back (you can look up the rest of the answers on the website given in the book). This a great gift (pair it with the book Chasing Vermeer). Hours of problem solving fun.

Pentominoes have challenged and entertained people who love puzzles for years.Unlike many puzzles that have only one solution,Pentominoes have many puzzles and solutions.Somewhat similar to the well known Tangram Puzzle,there are many,many figures or puzzles to challenge you.Pentominoes,(pent means 5) are made by many different companies,and from several types of materials.This is the classic 12 piece Pentomino set.Each piece is configured of 5 squares or tiles,sinto figures somewhat resembling the letters,I,L,P,T,U,V,W,X,Y,and Z,which are obvious.F looks like it has its arm backward,and N take a bit of stretch of the imagination.These letter shapes can be made using 9 of the pieces.Using all 12 pieces,rectangles can be made consisting of 60 squares.Also rectangles can be constructed with dimensions of 3 X 20,4 X 15,5 X 12 and 6 X 10,and there are many solutions to these rectangles.Squares of 60 can be made 8 X 8 by allowing empty squares at the corners,in the center,and various other symmetrical locations.The 6 X 10 rectangle can be constructed in over 1000 different ways.Some sets come in with all pieces the same color,whereas others have half of the pieces one color and the other half a different color,some sets have three or more colors,making for interesting and challenging puzzles.Some sets come with a booklet of figures to make.There is an interesting book for anyone looking for a great number of challenges,"Pentominoe Puzzles-- 365 Teasers To Keep Your Brain in Shape" by Eic Harshbarger available here on Amazon.If the 12 pieces are constructed with 5 cubes instead of 5 flat tiles,a whole different and challenging number of 3 dimensional figures can be constructed.Read more ›
