The master of the Soma variation has been at it again! This time Haym has included some balls into the design.
Each of the 27 cubes of the puzzle has an indentation on one face. the pieces are then arranged in such a way that there is only one way to place all the balls on the inside of the puzzle to enable you to get it into the box with the lid seated. Burr Tools says there are six solutions but this includes all the ways in which you could rotate the assembly into the box.
A cool second challenge involves finding the two remaining way in which you can seat all seven balls on the top of the puzzle. Your puzzle is shipped in one of these three total solutions.
I have several versions of these and all come with ball bearings for the balls. The Greenheart and Tigerwood versions are rather heavy. And the Longhi and Holly versions are just a bit smaller than the others.
