Overview

The 36 Cube is an addictive and insanely difficult puzzle. Your goal is to create a level 6x6 cube by strategically placing the thirty-six varied-height colored towers onto the gray base. The catch is that each color must be represented in each column and row. Think of it like a Sudoku puzzle - but in 3D.

Can you solve the 36 Cube?

You know a puzzle is hard when the instructions reiterate that the puzzle can indeed be solved. We're glad they wrote that because there have been a few times when we've been skeptical of its solvability. That's probably because we've never successfully solved the 36 Cube. But legend has it that others have...prove your super-smartness and solve the 36 Cube!

Frustrating? Yes. Impossible? No.
