Seven Hockey Pucks Solution
Home / Puzzle Help /

There are several ways to solve this puzzle. Many of you sent in great graphic illustrations to your solutions - thank you!! We show them below to illustrate these types of solutions.

Way 1 - 2D Solutions.

Draw a triangle. Then from each of the three angles of the triangle draw a line to the opposite side of the triangle. Make sure that all the three lines intersect in one point.

Now put the seven pucks on the next points:
-- three pucks - on the three corners (vertices) of the triangle;
-- three pucks - on the sides of the triangle where the lines drawn from the respective corner points cross these sides.
-- one puck - on the point where all the three internal lines cross.

In this way you'll have six rows of three pucks each, namely, the three sides of the triangle and the three internal lines.
