- PUZZLE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Apr. 19, 1910.
Application filed May 11, 1909. Serial No. 495,352.
To all whom it concern:
Be it known that THOMAS PEAoooK, a subject of Great Britain, residing at Jerome in the county of Yava ai and Territory 0 Arizona, have invent a new and useful Puzzle, of which the following is a specification. v
My invention relates to colored geometric puzzles, and the object is to provide amuse ment or recreation inthe process of solving the puzzle.
The puzzle is constructed of a number of flat pieces of suitable material each havi its flat surfaces colored, and being forms into square, triangular -and other geometrical shapes, the whole, when properly joinedtogether forming a square in which, on' the face side, no two pieces of the same color are adjacent at the sides thereof; or, similarly colored pieces may only touch at their respective corners. All the pieces, a
number singly, and the remainder by pairs,
' are reverslble -as regards size. and shape.
The difierent pieces are shaped as shown by the accompanying drawing, which is a view of the face sides of the various pieces when properly joined together, and'on which the various pieces are numbered.
There are three or morecolors used. The coloring of the upper or face sides of the pieces may be varied in any combination of three or more colors, and the variations in the coloring of the separate pieces may be extended to a large number while only using the same number of colors. It is possible tomanufacture a very largenumber of puzzles in which no two would be exactly similar in the coloring of the two flat surfaces of each separate piece while only using the same three colors. an example, in
one puzzle the face sides of the pieces num bered 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 14, and 15 may be of the first color, the coloring of the face sides of the pieces numbered 5, 7, 10, 11, 13, 17., and 19, may be of the second color, and the coloring of the face sides of the pieces numbered 6, 12, 16, 18, and 20 may be of the third color. The lower or reverse side of each piece is also colored in one ofthe same three or. more colors usedon the face sides, but the coloring of the reverse sides is promiscuous; thus for example, a piece havingthe first color on the face side may be either of the first, second, or third color on the reversesiden The ob]ect of the pro miscuous coloring of the reverse sides is intended to render the solution of the puzzle more difiicult.
. I claim:
A puzzle combination of twenty1 flat pieces of suitable material of which t ree pieces are square, two are rhomboidal, fourteen are triangular, and one is five sided, the sizes of each and all of the piecesibein adjusted so that when all are joined togetier 1n the pro er manner a square is f0rmed,-th e flat sur aces of the various pieces being colored on both sides in three different colors, the coloring of the separate pieces both on the face" and reverse sides thereof being arranged so that a square may be formed in" which no two pieces adjacent, at the sides thereof are of the same color on the face side, as illustrated by the accompanying drawing.
