Tile Deal Puzzle
A puzzle in which 63 squares, divided into 10
separate tiles, are arranged and rearranged so that they always
occupy the same space (63 square inches, for example) but each
time the tiles are rearranged, one tile is left out of the
reassembly until you are left at the end with three separate
tiles that will not fit back in. Yet you still have 63 squares
every time you do this. I give you the original templates for
making this yourself from cardboard, magnetic sheeting, vinyl
floor tiles from the Dollar Store, hardboard or thin wood. Note:
This is NOT the same configuration of tiles that is sold by
others commercially, but is based on Winston Freer's original
configuration, with no need for beveling the edges of the puzzle.
My "Wizard Touch" is to show you how to perform with
this configuration in a way that I believe is superior to the
commercial versions that sell for hundreds of dollars. However,
if you'd like to try making one the hard way, I give you a
configuration to work with for that purpose.
Wiz Kid Qua-Fiki shows you how to make a smaller
6" by 9" puzzle from wood, as he demonstrates on the
Video below. The e-Book includes his smaller version plus
