Euler’s 36 officers, a Rubik’s cube, and a Sudoku puzzle walk into a bar…

36-cube-puzzle

… and this “World’s Most Challenging Puzzle” results.  The 36 Cube is available from ThinkGeek, who likens it to a 3D Sudoku puzzle.  The game was developed by Dr. Derrick Niederman of MIT and is based on Euler’s 36-officers problem.  The goal is to place the colored pieces so that each color appears only once in each row/column and the ending arrangement must result in a perfectly smooth cube.  It would make a great holiday gift for the puzzle lover in your life.  It’s $19.99 at ThinkGeek.
