After getting a box of goodies at a garage sale, I spent 30 minutes trying unsuccessfully to explain the difference between Optimus Prime and Voltron to my five-year old. And then I found myself supremely challenged to metamorphasize the new-school Transformers. In other words, my ego (or “geek-go”) is bruised and battered. What do I do when my self image is threatened? I turn to Lego, which is much more than you needed to know about the following puzzle:
With the following standard Lego pieces, how can you form a regular hexahedron, aka a cube?
12 of the following: brick 2×4′s
8 of the following: brick 2×3′s
8 of the following: brick 2×2′s
The correct answer must use all the pieces and, like a good cube, the answer must have six, defined, planar faces all of equal dimensions.
