    Clever pieces

    If you like biting your fist in frustration, nibbling your nails in exasperation and slapping your forehead in eureka-style celebration, you're going to love K-Dron. Why? Because it's one of the most infuriatingly addictive little brain-teasers ever to grace our pages. You'll be hooked in seconds.

    K-Dron

    That can't be right..?

    Without getting too technical, K-Drons are complex shapes discovered by Polish visionary Janusz Kapusta (no, us neither) and they form the basis of this brilliant take-anywhere puzzle. The idea is to fiddle with the K-Dron pieces (four black and four white) and reproduce the various patterns shown in the accompanying booklet.

    Easy

    K-Dron

    It sounds pretty straightforward but it's not. In fact there are 38,416 possible combinations with just eight K-Drons. And once you get up close and personal with a K-Dron you'll understand why. Each of these strange polyhedrons has eleven multifaceted sides and a diamond-shaped face with a 45° angle of inclination. This means K-Drons are symmetrical and asymmetrical, concave and convex. Confused? So are we and we just wrote that.

    Intermediate

    K-Dron

    The K-Dron booklet contains three colour-coded difficulty levels: green for easy, yellow for intermediate and orange for aargh my brain is melting. On the off-chance you ever tire of shape-shifting you can even play a special form of mini chess using the spectacularly versatile K-Dron pieces. Who'd have thought a few funny shapes could be so ludicrously entertaining!

    If you're reading this and wondering why we're harping on about such an ostensibly simple little puzzle, consider this: K-Dron costs less than two pints of wallop; it doesn't bleep, flash or deliver an electric shock, and it's barely bigger than a packet of ciggies. And yet every single gadgetmeister here at Firebox HQ is fiddling with theirs as we speak. *Oi, get back to work you lot!* As for you lot, we strongly recommend you get ordering before the whole world goes K-Dron crazy.
