36 Cube is a new puzzle game by world famous game maker Thinkfun. 36 Cube is the brainchild of Dr. Derrick Niederman, an MIT Ph.D. who develops puzzles for fun. He came up with the idea while writing a book on whole numbers, after unearthing a mathematical supposition from the 18th century.

36 Cube is an innocent-looking puzzle with a challenging solve-ability factor. Simply snap 36 boldly-colored plastic tower pieces, six each of six colors, into a square base with 36 welcoming receptacles. Make sure the finished puzzle forms a perfect cube, each color appearing only once in each row and column, all the same height.

I would compare 36 Cube with a kind of 3D Color Sudoku, as in each row or column each color is only allowed once and then you have as an extra the height of each color which just makes it very difficult when solving large game grid. I would also like one enhancement for the online 36 cube game, and that is adding the number of the height of pieces you drag onto the game grid.

Buy 36 Cube from Amazon.com. Happy Puzzling!
