Welcome to the Penrose Puzzle Room. Here you will find plenty of uniquely designed puzzles to keep you perplexed and puzzled for a long time to come. All of the puzzles' patterns are mathematically based and designed by Sir Roger Penrose the well known English mathematician.


The original 45 piece Gamebirds

Forty pieces are kept in play on the gameboard built into the box. Using just the two shapes, small and large birds, the goal is to completely cover the playing surface. Sounds easy? It's not; and there is only one solution. At higher levels you substitute a rogue dog for a large bird and the solutions change. By the time you have five dogs substituted you'll have gone through potentially 23 different solutions to just one puzzle. This one will keep you occupied for a long time.

  • 45 pieces
  • 26cm diameter
  • High quality plastic pieces
