Quintillions or solid pentominoes: A challenging game puzzle that is also a work of art

Review of

Quintillions, A Set of Solid Pentominoes created by Kadon Enterprises

This is a set of solid pentominoes where the squares are approximately ¾ of an inch thick. The craftmanship is extraordinary, all of the edges and faces are as smooth as possible and the grain of the wood is very attractive.
 The set comes with a folding grid for the pentominoes that is 9 by 12, giving the “player” great flexibility in how they put the pieces together. The package contains a 63 page booklet of structures that can be made from the set. As is normally the case, there is a wide difference in the difficulty of the problems, some are three-dimensional structures.
 There are hours of challenging fun inherent in this collection, the pentominoes are the ideal set of polyominoes, there are enough of them to make it interesting but not so many as to be impossible. While few toys can double as a work of art, this is definitely one of them.
