Magnet puzzle game and ornament

36 pieces of magnetic color plates,
each 1.47 x 1.47 inches , 6 oz
Let's face the bitter truth: our ability to concentrate on tasks tends to be on the thin side now a days. So, what can be better than an easy way to exercise your attention span? This is a game that eases you into focus through the satisfying task of building patterns as you find color-to-segment correspondences (a bit like with domino chips, but in this instance, in four directions).
We know one solution to this puzzle in which the 36 pieces conform to a six by six pieces square—if you are interested in that particular challenge; additionally, we recommend a game that consists of building paths, scoring one point for each side (if you match two sides of a piece, needless to say, you score double).
And it looks kind of cool on your refrigerator because it is magnetic.
Fun detail: although the dark areas are made of black ink, something in our minds keeps on tricking us to believe it is only dark brown. Does the same happen to you?
