Hello everyone !
The ostomachion, literally "the battle of the bones" is the first puzzle in history and the ancestor of our current tangrams.
It was probably invented by Archimedes to solve a mathematical problem, or as a source of reflection.
The game consisted of a square base cut into 14 geometric pieces.
The object of the game was to combine the pieces in several ways and using them all, to piece together the square, or precise figures (a helmet, a goose in flight, a tower, a column, an elephant, a boar, a dog barking or a hunter on the prowl).
Have a nice day everyone and have a good game;)
