Boney Pentominoes is a revisit of the classic Pentominoes
puzzle, coined and made popular by Solomon Golomb
. The pieces are given a boney structure by using the nTopology Element
software. This results in strong, but very light pieces. Also, the boney structure introduces a level of visual confusion, which is then negated by coloring the pieces. The puzzle is the same as for reqular pentominoes, that is, build a rectangle, a block and other shapes.
