Introducing the intriguing 40 Degrees, a tangram-style puzzle with a twist. Designed by the masterful Jürgen Reiche and brought to you by Siebenstein Spiele, the 40 Degrees puzzle promises to challenge your spatial reasoning and puzzle-solving skills.

Crafted from beautiful laser-cut wood, each 40 Degrees puzzle is a unique work of art. The varying wood grains and tones give the puzzle a distinct character, making it a stunning addition to any collection. Measuring 8.5" x 3.5" x 0.5", this puzzle offers a world of challenge and intrigue that will captivate and delight.

The objective of the 40 Degrees puzzle is to use the 20 pentominoes to create the various shapes provided in the included printout. With a difficulty rating of 6/10, this puzzle is accessible to puzzlers of all skill levels, but don't be deceived – it's sure to keep you engaged for hours on end.

Pentominoes are perhaps the most recognizable shapes in packing puzzles and are widely used in puzzle design. Typically, a pentomino is comprised of five equal units joined together, and there are 12 known shapes. However, the 40 Degrees puzzle offers a unique twist, featuring 20 pentominoes, including duplicates.

What sets this puzzle apart is that the pieces were cut with a 40-degree angle, adding an extra layer of complexity. Despite the small size of the pieces, the puzzle turned out beautifully, with the shape of the tray resembling three fused rhombi. As you analyze the pieces, you'll notice that even though there are identical pentominoes, the pieces themselves are slightly different due to the 40-degree treatment. This can be turned to your advantage, as you can see where each piece might go despite another similar pentomino.

The 40 Degrees puzzle offers countless shapes to build with the 20 pentominoes, ensuring that it will challenge and entertain you for years to come. Building shapes outside of the tray's outline is even more difficult, as it becomes harder to see the limits of the shape. The tilt on the pieces may take some getting used to, but with practice, you'll become more adept.

In conclusion, the 40 Degrees puzzle is a brilliant take on a known concept, offering originality and challenge. Siebenstein Spiele has once again showcased its dedication to creating innovative and engaging puzzles. Whether you're a seasoned puzzler or new to the world of pentominoes, the 40 Degrees puzzle will captivate and challenge you.
