EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is
New from Winning Moves Games is the Rubik's Triamid. The Rubik's Triamid is what happens when you blend an original Rubick's Cube product with geometric mechanics. Much like the Rubick's Cube, the objective with the Triamid is to mix and match the puzzle until all the sides feature the same color. What makes the Triamid unique is that it's in the shape of a triangular pyramid and features four sides. Each Triamid puzzle comes with ten individual four-dimensional pieces, technically termed "truncated rhombic dodecahedra", that can be attached and reconfigured using four black “joining sections”.
Is It Fun?

The Triamid is a classic puzzle that can keep you busy for hours as you try to figure out the best solution. The removable joining sections and the truncated rhombic dodecahedra make the puzzle challenging and dynamic. Its small size makes it an ideal travel-friendly toy for those long journeys.
