As may of you know, I like to share illusions and puzzles to help you think outside the box. My cousin Lois shared this one with me, and I’m passing it on, as it is quick and fun. The first time took me 4.5 minutes and the second time 3 minutes.

A hint is to move all the pieces outside the box so you can see them. I do not share these often, as some readers have no interest. However, I strongly believe seeing combinations and solutions is quite valuable. I hope you enjoy.


A really fun puzzle, whether it proves anything, or not!
