The Cross Breaker

Home / Puzzle Playground / Puzzles / Tangrams /

F. A. Richter and Company manufactured this puzzle at the end of the 19th century.

First produce the seven pieces that form the rectangle in the center of the illustration. For this you may use our
Print n Play Version.

Now make the figures shown around the central rectangle using the whole set of the pieces for each of them. You're allowed to rotate the pieces as you wish, and even flip 'em over. But you can't overlap the pieces.

By the way, the story of this puzzle says these seven pieces were formed by breaking up a cross. Can you find such a cross as well?.
