About this item

The Tangram is one of the most ancient puzzles in the world, requiring one to figure out the arrangement of the seven pieces of a Tangram set just by looking at the silhouette of the shape.This fresh and original book presents a collection of different types of puzzles. The puzzles here use the pieces as building units only, and present a variety of challenges, from all fields of recreational mathematics. For example, there are symmetry puzzles, cover-up puzzles and even a Poker-related puzzle.Some puzzles may not use all seven pieces of the Tangram set, while others may use pieces from two or more Tangram sets.Most of the puzzles presented here are new and original. Some are based on classic puzzles, but there are also many new and modified ones.In a twist to the classic Tangram puzzles, most of the puzzles in this book do not allow connection between pieces, unless they share a common edge; a point-to-point connection is forbidden. With this slight change in rules, we opened up a whole new universe of endless puzzles and challenges!
