Five Cubes by Kohno Ichiro is the final and trickiest iteration of his brilliant concept. By careful use of magnetic polarity, the pieces are dissimilar despite their appearance. The goal is again to assemble the pieces into a symmetrical shape of five distinct, equal-sized cubes with none of the cubes overlapping by their neighbor by more than one-half cube. All magnets must be engaged for the final shape to be stable.
Our work is handcrafted to very precise tolerances and must be kept within the range of 40-60% relative humidity at all times. Failure to do so may cause inoperability or permanent damage.
Quality. Fun. Table top game.
After I got the 1X3 cube puzzles I liked it so I decided to try the 1X 5 cube. Great fun and not as challenging as I though it might be. Before I found the correct solution I was able to find 2 other variations.....but these all didn't hold together and some had the magnets showing. The correct solution has no magnets showing, all sides are smooth and hold together without coming apart. All in all good fun and very well made. Love the wood.
A very very original puzzle idea, thanks to the Cubicdissection team, I cannot remember to similar puzzles with magnets, and - really - it is not trivial to solve
