The pieces can also be used to make a variety of other interesting 3D shapes. There are also more interesting shapes you can make with Soma cube.

Upon purchase, your magical 3D puzzle is in its original state: on every visible surface of every visible cube there is a silver star.

Elm’s Puzzle Club


Dedicated jigsaw puzzlers know nothing matches the quality (or challenge) of a real hand-cut wooden puzzle. But at about US$ 2.00 or so per piece they are outrageously expensive (a 20″ x 24″ 1000-piece puzzle can cost $3,000). ELMS Puzzles solves the dilemma by offering a rental program that lets you keep a puzzle for three months, by which time you should either be done or realize you’ve met your match.

The wooden pieces (unlike cardboard) are very exact in their fitting so you have to be very certain about having the right piece. Also, many are cut with straight [Read More...]

TaMiGoN – Puzzle Game


TaMiGoN is a new and unique logic puzzle game for Mac OS X.

This puzzle game brings together game elements from the Chinese Tangram puzzles and mixes them with modern Action Puzzle ideas such as color and shape matching. This puzzle game is a follow up to the popular BoXiKoN game but it’s more like a ‘sister game’ than a sequel.

TaMiGoN uses a set of shapes based on the Chinese Tangram puzzle. These shapes are made up of triangles and diamonds rather than blocks.

TaMiGoN uses a set of 400 different Tangram style shapes. Happy [Read More...]
