The goal is to look at the 2D puzzle and recreate it. It will take time and trial and error to figure out the solutions as card layers can be flipped and rotated into multiple positions, and you will have to figure out where within the eight cards each layer goes. Most of each card will be covered by layers on top. Layer pieces are plastic, and the challenges are printed in a folded booklet. Each challenge will be presented as a finished product (see the frog above, bottom right). Try the four orientations on the front of each card and if none look right, flip the card to the back and try the four orientations on the back. Good for those who like a challenge and don't frustrate easily. This puzzle is available in a variety of themes.
- For a beginner, lay all of the plastic layers in the correct order and orientation and let him assemble.
- Increase the difficulty by giving the plastic layers in the correct order, but not the correct orientation.
- Give verbal cues such as "turn to the right", "rotate" or "flip".
