This is the new TETRA Puzzle and playful sculpture
Create playful playful sculptural forms with TETRA:
Or solve the puzzle by forming a 4-sided pyramid, a tetragon.
Warning: This puzzle is easy to play with, but very difficult to solve!
The natural finish woodgrain version of TETRA is even more difficult a puzzle to solve. It comes as 20 attached balls in a single plane. You solve it by turning balls and/or folding balls until the 3 dimensional tetra shape is formed. Difficult enough as that is, the balls can be detached from each other and then attempt to reform the tetra by re-attaching. This last way of solving is extremely difficult and may not resolve unless the balls are attached in the right sequence.
Any pattern you choose, Buckyball is a challenging puzzle. Use it as a puzzle challenge, a meditation, or an attractive art conversation piece-- constructing this 3-D puzzle is a satisfying experience. Order your Buckyball now!
