The Colorful Cube is a
packing puzzle with a twist. 9 multi-colored "L" shaped pieces have to be put
together to form a cube, each side having a different color.
Not only do you
have the six outer colors on the sides of the assembled cube, but the inside of the pieces
are colored as well - with all six colors plus a surprise 7th one. The seven colors used
are: White, Green, Yellow (see left picture), Pink, Red, Blue (see right) and black on a
few inside pieces. You could almost think of this puzzle as a loose Rubick's Cube.
A plexiglass case and assembly diagram are provided.

A mechanical puzzle is a self-contained object, composed
of one or more parts, which involves a problem for one person to solve by manipulation
using logic, reasoning, insight, luck, and/or dexterity. - Jerry Slocum
