How to play:
Tilt the cube to change the number of dots on each facing.
Arrange the dice so that all sides add up to the same number.
The puzzle has to sit on its feet to make them fall into place.
There are multiple levels to solve (easiest to hardest): 12’s, 11’s, 10’s and 7’s.
This is a 2x2x2 sliding block puzzle with one missing piece to the cube. The difference to other puzzles with this mechanism are dots printed on the puzzle. The goal is to get same sum on all sides. The basic challenge is to arrange the dice so that on each face the number of dots is 7.
Once you achieve that there are some more challenges to try:
– Arrange the dice so that on each face the number of dots is 10 (easy), 11 (medium), 12 (medium), 8 (hard), 9 (hard), or 14 (hard).
– Arrange the dice so that the total number of dots everywhere is 62 (easy), 34 (hard), or 88 (hard).
