The challenge is to take these 7 configurations and assemble them in a large cube 3 X 3 X 3 cubes.It must be noted that there are many ways to do this; and this is the general solution of this puzzle.
What is different with this product is that it comes with a set of 60 cards,each being another challence or shape to construct.Just in case you get stuck,solutions are provided on the back of the cards.
This is a puzzle that will be solvable by young as well as adults.It is simple to learn what is to be done and anyone who gets tempted with a puzzle,will readily try to "do it".That is what I call a great puzzle and worthy of the name a classic.By the way, this product by Thinkfun was previously sold under the name of Binary Arts.(same company,just a new name)
GAME DESCRIPTION: This game comes with a few blocks (7 I believe) and you're given these cards where you look at the image and you're supposed to reproduce the image give with the blocks provided (you have to use all of them for every challenge).
AGE: I don't recommend young children to play with this game because it requires a lot of patience. They could however, just have these blocks and play with them and make their own challenges without ever looking at the cards and attempt to recreate the image. My boyfriend and I are both college students at UC Berkeley and we love the game and it's a perfect level of difficulty for us
SKILLS: This game doesn't really require critical thinking (which I would have liked), but rather just playing with the blocks until you recreate the image desired. It does however, require a lot of patience since it's a trial and error type of game.
DELTAS: It's not meant to be played on your bed, couch, or futon. I've tried and the blocks just keep sliding and moving a lot since it is plastic. I also don't like how the blocks are plastic because some pieces don't stay in place the way you want it to. For some of the puzzles, you would have to hold the blocks together to ensure it doesn't fall because most blocks distribute weight unevenly and if you let go, it causes your entire structure to fall.
Other than that, I really enjoy this game and it's really a bargain. Another plus is that the game can be replayed after completing all the challenges since you're honestly not going to remember how you put the puzzle together to get to the solution. I hate buying board games/games in general that you can't really play all the time.Read more ›

I work with kids and this game is GREAT for kids age 10+ (including adults). It may be good for 8- and 9-year old children, too, depending on their mental acuity. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Commander Ducky

It came with 60 solutions on 60 cards for 7 pieces. None for 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 pieces. It could be better. I need the cards with progressively increasing difficulties.Published 3 months ago by Roman Marks
Just a plastic copy of the SOMA cube, that usually comes as wooden puzzle.
So, if you know the SOMA cube and maybe have one, there's no need to buy it. Read more
These are just great fun to have.
I used to work one out before going to bed each night.
They are great "brain-xercisers" and is tricky enough for adults to use... Read more
Very challenging. I bought other Think Fun games before and thought this one would be about the same. This one seems to be much harder.Published 7 months ago by F.I
