Pentominoes in Ask Magazine

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

I was delighted when Ask Magazine showed an interest in my Pentominoes game and asked if it could be included in their website to accompany an article in the September issue about Archimedes, who amongst other things created the mathematical puzzle Ostomachion.  The puzzle consists of 14 pieces dissected from a square that can then be rearranged to form a wide variety of other shapes and figures.   Naturally I was intrigued and you can now play the puzzle on their site here.
