    42 Rain Drop

    Puzzle Solution:

    Remove the base (by pulling straight off in a downward movement) and set aside.

    Remove Cocobolo magnetic top piece.

    Lay Rain Drop on its side, find out which side you can hear the steel ball rolling around on by tilting it end for end. This is the side you want facing up.

    Take the magnetic piece and wave it over the face side of the lower base section.

    Pick up the steel ball and try to "drop" it into the middle area, there you will find a small hole to hide the "size" of the ball.

    You will know when it has fallen into the hole by two ways, first, you may hear it fall into the hole, it has a quiet yet noticeable sound. Second, when you gently tilt the puzzle from end to end, you shouldn't hear the ball rolling around anymore.

    Gently roll the whole puzzle box onto its next adjacent side (being careful not to spill the ball out of the hole, keep tilted back just a bit).

    Now roll the Rain Drop over onto its face side, the ball should be trapped within the hole in the block.

    The block can now be jostled a bit to allow the glass tube to be slid out through the bottom and be removed from the puzzle.

  • 44 Ze RD - Evil Twins

    Puzzle Solution:

    To open the Outer Shell, spin the ball hard. With the Happy Face facing up, it will expand and explode into 4 pieces Inside is a Rhombic Dodecahedron (RD), its derivative. You can open this by: a) A modified Stewart Coffin 3 finger Pennyhedron opening. Press and pull b) Or spin the structure. It will also expand and explode into 4 pieces The last baby RD inside opens like a rose. By pressing simultaneously the 3 triangles together, it slides and opens in coordinate motion. It has 3 SIMILAR pieces inside, a new discovery. REASSEMBLY

    Please follow the inside color markers of the pieces to maintain the outside pattern symmetry.

    For the outer 2 RDs, open and expand 3 of the pieces as far as it will go without collapsing.

    You use your left hand fingers as a jig. Place the inner RD inside and then slide the last piece in. You hear a click as it just start to close. Now flip the structure upside down and jiggle the inner RD until it

    is sitting snugly, hexagonal face facing up. The 4 pieces will now close completely.

    With the baby RD

    Place all the 3 pieces loosely together matching the color markings

    You see 2 triangular spaces in the centers, top and bottom. CLOSE OFF one of these triangles by pressing the 3 sides

    together. Now you can close the other big triangle space.

  • 53 TetraCubed

  • 53 TetraCubed

    Puzzle Solution:

    Hint: This is really three separate problems:

    1. Build a regular tetrahedron using the dark pieces 2. Fit the tetrahedron into the box 3. As you close the box, place the cubes into each of the four empty spaces

    Solution:

    1. To put the tetrahedron together, notice that the 4 pieces are two mirror-image pairs. Each piece has 6 triangular faces and 2 quadrilaterals. The large quadrilateral face has a right angle corner, and the smaller one doesn't. Take two of the identical pieces and put the two smaller quadrilaterals together. This will make one edge of the tetrahedron, and leave 4 triangular faces together opposite the edge. Put the other two pieces together (to make the opposite edge), and put the two sets of 4 triangles together to make the large tetrahedron.

    2. To put the tetrahedron in the plastic box, just make sure each edge of the tetrahedron is exactly

    on the diagonal of a face of the cube. You will find that the empty space
