Once the shape is unraveled, getting it back into a cube turns out to be much harder than it looks . Fair warning: this puzzle has 47 steps to bring it back into a cube. Starting with a 3x cube is recommended.
In this special box you can find 27 wooden rods.
All of them have the same size, but are sliced differently inside.
To create a burr puzzle (interlock puzzle that has 2 rods on each side), you will need any 5 different rods + the 0 (zero) rod- which is the only fully squared rod.
With 3 different objectives this is the perfect game for any coffee table. See how many solutions you can find for the triangle and the two three dimensional pyramids.

The challenge :Balance all the nails on the single peg in the center without letting the nails touch the base!

Strategic game with a surprising end.
Originally played by the royalty of Madagascar, Fanorona was a pass time for the wealthy. It still holds up today as an extremely strategic game for two players.
22 white balls & 22 black balls set on the board as in the picture.
For each turn, a player moves one of their balls to an unoccupied space. When a ball runs into or moves away from a line of the opponent's balls they are removed from play. The player who has the last remaining balls on the board is the winner.
You will have to find a tactical way to capture the last balls on the board.
