The Tangram (also known as seven boards of skill, 7 Tricky Pieces, 7 Clever Pieces, and Chinese Puzzle) is a dissection puzzle consisting of 7 flat shapes, called TANS, which are put together to form shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape (given only an outline or silhouette) using all seven pieces (pieces may not overlap). It is reputed to have been invented in China during the Song Dynasty (was an era of Chinese history that began in 960 and continued until 1279), and then carried over to Europe by trading ships in the early 19th century. It became very popular in Europe for a time then, and then again during World War I. It is one of the most popular dissection puzzles in the world. A Chinese psychologist has termed the Tangram “the earliest psychological test in the world”, albeit one made for entertainment rather than for analysis. The Tangram challenges the puzzler to produce a given silhouette using all 7 pieces. This great Tangram version comes complete with a 20 pages Silhouette challenge booklet, that include 48 silhouette challenges and the solution. The pieces can be stored in the wooden box with lid. Etymology The origin of the word ‘Tangram’ is unclear. The ‘Tan-‘ element is variously conjectured to be Chinese. The ‘-gram’ element is apparently from Greek. Great gift for any puzzler who love challenge. Ultimate fun game.
