MATERIAL: Patagonian Rosewood
RELEASE DATE: 3.3.2020
EDITION: 128 Copies Released

Five Cubes by Ichiro is the final iteration of this brilliant concept. Crafted from beautiful Patagonian Rosewood, this is perhaps the trickiest iteration. The goal is to make five cubes using all the magnets, with none of the cubes overlapping by their neighbor by more than one-half cube. One solution has been found to date; can you find another?

Great series of puzzles

I love Eric's boxes and complex puzzles, but sometimes it's nice to enjoy the elegance and simplicity of a solidly built put-together like this. Magnets make for good fiddling and (bounded) exploration. Recommend the whole series of Cubes - plenty of the unexpected to be found. In fact, my 6 year old son took 3 Cubes and 4 Cubes and within a few minutes had found a stable (but not completely magnetically-joined) 4x4x4 voxel cube to be made out of the combined pieces. Can you find it?


Quality. Fun. Table top game.
Thank you!

! X 5 cubes puzzle

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.
