The game of Tangram





I love this old Chinese game. I have several different boxes and I even play it on my iPhone.
The tangram literally means 'seven boards of skill', it is a dissection puzzle consisting of seven 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, which may not overlap.

  1. Very interesting--i didn't know this was a Chinese game! I'll have to put it on my iphone too. Remember playing it when I was a kid.
