Some of the joy of a puzzle is determining an effective strategy for solving it. However the Preposterous Puzzle makes us want to claim impossibility. At first glance you see a square completely filled with wooden pieces. then you are asked to insert a smaller square into the middle without removing any pieces.
Obviously there is just not enough space, but apparently no-one told the folks making this puzzle that it’s inherently flawed and unsolvable. But is it?
Put this on your desk and watch as your friends and co-workers cry foul on the Preposterous Puzzle. It silently taunts them and they refuse to open their minds. The all wood construction looks sharp while your puzzle silently snickers.
– Clever Puzzle seems impossible to solve… but is it?
