A three piece packing puzzle based on a 3x3x2 box cavity with two different entry holes. The objective is to fit the pieces in so that nothing sticks out of the box. A seemingly simple task, but the pieces have to do a lovely little dance in order to solve. The assembly is made tougher by the shape of the pentomino piece that restricts the placement of the other two pieces and is not helped by the fact that the other two are identical. Another great puzzle brought to you by Pelikan! (Ships in an unsolved state.)
