    I feel like folks saying "this is cheating" also think that the only way to solve any ordinary puzzle is to do it with the picture side down. If the puzzle designer didn't want there to be such a solution, then they could have used completely flat colors and a plastic base. Would have been just as cheap. Or they could have made it so the solution actually involves pieces which are placed in the puzzle against the grain of the wood. It would look strange, but also be a harder solve.

    there is 2 axis symmetry in the puzzle so how hard can it be? there must be some pieces at least 2 times or 4 times, and as you said the last one has the 4 way symmetry the whole puzzle has.

    I don't think the wood grain was intentional. And a flaw in the puzzle design

    love your videos FLEB! anytime I'm in a chill mood and wanna watch a guy solve some puzzles i come to either you or Mr Puzzle. puts me in a calm mood and relaxes me! I'm not super into puzzling, i do own a few and have played around with friends puzzles, but i really love the art behind making these and the thought and skill needed to create such elaborate and challenging puzzles. keep up the good work! love the content.

    I like when he said 4 way symmetry, but I noticed ..... You can turn over each piece so the last piece would have 8 ways it could go♾

    Do you know if the wood grains were purposeful? I feel like of it is that's brilliant. But if not it feels like cheating.

    • FLEB
      FLEB  Year ago

      I don't know 100%, but given the designer, I think that it's almost certainly the intended way to solve it.

  • healthflo21
    healthflo21 Year ago

    So you cheated. That is the trick. If the game came painted, you wouldn't have been able to solve it.

  • Emil Sørensen
    Emil Sørensen Year ago +1

    Not to imply anything, but is the puzzle really intended to be solved using the wood grains?
    Reminds me of how I'd solve Rubik's cubes by tearing it apart and putting it back together again. I mean, it works. I'd probably do it. It's not that easy to come up with the idea.
    I do wonder if the designer isn't at home going "Doh! I forgot the pieces shouldn't come from the same piece of wood!"

    • FLEB
      FLEB  Year ago

      I think so! Given how incredible the designer of the puzzle is, I doubt he would have an unintended solution in his puzzle.

    I love how as he says "be careful to match it with the wood grain", he does it so it doesn't match with the wood grain.

    I really love this puzzle in articular because it has that "Method to the Madness" It appears to be a "trial and error" type of thing but there is a simple yet not blatantly obvious trick to it.

  • Joshua Williams
    Joshua Williams 2 years ago +1

    When I looked at the shape of the puzzle, I figured it would have 4 quadrants with exactly the same solution, so I would have put the pieces in groups of 4, then worked on one corner to find the solution. Since there was only one of the last shape, I knew that would be in the centre.

    is it possbile the designer didn't plan on people looking at the orientation of the wood gran while solving the puzzle. It seems like a bit of a cheat

    • FLEB
      FLEB  2 years ago +1

      It's possible, but the designer is probably the world's greatest living puzzle designer. I would be VERY surprised if there was a solution path that was unintended.

    "Be careful to align the wood grains on the last piece."
    Doesn't align them properly. I can't express how mildly annoyed I am, and if this was intentional, damn you Fleb, damn you!

    • FLEB
      FLEB  2 years ago

      Oh whoops! No, that was not intentional. I think it's rotated 180 degrees?

    this look more like a flaw on the puzzle itself, but still, puzzle is all about finding a way to solve it, and that's 1 way.

    Great video, I love puzzles but people love to talk and talk and talk and talk before getting to the reason I clicked on the link. To see the puzzle. I don't mind people telling you about a puzzle but do it briefly or during the solve. I watched one the other day where 5 mins they were still talking about it not even holding it shifting angles nothing just rattling off. I was already a bit irritated and the talking made it worse so I thumbs down and went to another video. This one on the other hand is done right!!

  • Alexander Wong
    Alexander Wong 2 years ago

    Oh my God, he matched the last one 180 degree backward, i think. It's bothering me a lot XD
    Edit: Pretty sure it's backward, RIGHT AFTER HE SAID BE SURE TO MATCH UP.

    Okay Ive been a sub for a little while now and I still cannot understand how the F R I C K you solve a puzzle by looking at the HECKING WOOD GRAIN LIKE WHAT I DONT UNDERSTAND

  • burgersnchips
    burgersnchips 2 years ago

    I think using the wood grain is cheating. You solve the puzzle by trial and error not by using a clue left because it was made using eco-friendly materials.

  • MennerMovies
    MennerMovies 2 years ago

    Another clue seems to be that it is all about squares. There is a tilted square in the middle, and all pieces have parts of squares that seem too be complemented with other half squares, but in the wrong way, so they don't form a square together, but then again the whole puzzle seem to be filled with it. The outline is a square, also.And ther's a distinctive pastern of diagonal symetry, if you look at the beginning.

  • Mark Gearing
    Mark Gearing 2 years ago

    Hmm... really don't like using woodgrain as a hint - it seems to me that you're cheating. Are we saying this puzzle wouldn't be able to be solved if it were infection moulded?
