Product Description
Bamboozle Spirals is a set of spiral pieces that needs to be put together. I (Oskar) designed these spirals originally August 1993. The object is to put the twelve spirals together in a symmetrical way. A seasoned solver would immediately look for a crystal structure with tetraheral geometry. Surprisingly, that does not work. Only recently, I learned that I had rediscovered the Laves Crystal (1932), which was also recreated as the Bamboozle geometry by Koos and Tom Verhoeff (2012). This is an infinite geometry that has some spiral slide-rotate symmetries.The assembly of Bamboozle Spirals forces the solver to build this peculiar geometry. The achieved local symmetry is a three-fold rotation.
