Magic Square Tile Puzzle 25
This new puzzle from Cheatwell Games consists of 25 square card pieces, that are supplied in an attractive presentation box.
Each piece has a butterfly in the centre. There are 5 different butterfly designs, and each butterfly appears on 5 different tiles, making 25 tiles in all. However the puzzle is a lot more complex than it appears. Each tile has parts of a butterfly around the edge, and so all edges have to match.
The simpler solution is to make a 5 x 5 square, in which all the edges match. However even this is not all that simple.
The more challenging solution involves forming a 5 x 5 square, in which each design of butterfly appears once and once only on each horizontal or vertical line. This makes the puzzle rather like a visual version of Sudoko.
With elegant artwork, and the tiles printed onto thick, quality card, this is an attractive and challenging puzzle.
