New Thing #337: Build a 3D Puzzle


I thought I’d be terrible at 3D puzzles. I’m never that great at spatial problem solving and figuring out how to fold a complex box or tie a knot are my worst nightmares.

But this 3D puzzle of Big Ben was almost too easy. It turns out that each side uses the same set of pieces as the others so once you figured out one the rest are a breeze.

The only trouble I really had was folding the top bit. It took just about as long to close up properly as the rest combined.

Thank god I didn’t get the Eiffel Tower instead.
