The aim is to assemble the complex pieces into a cube shape which can be stood on its’ corner in the stand – these 10 identical and oddly shaped pieces need to assemble into a 6x6x6 cube. Just doing the simple math shows that this doesn’t add up – each piece is 18 voxels in volume with 10 of them making 180 voxels in total and the 6x6x6 cube will be 216 voxels – quite a large discrepancy. Hence the name…the Fake cube needs to be assembled so that just the exterior looks like it is complete and hides the holes inside and on the walls adjacent to the case. A creative puzzle that will have you thinking “outside the box!”
