This puzzle is a hexagonal polyomino puzzle. It’s made from hexagons. There are total 53 hexagon. This puzzle has 12 pieces. The smallest pieces is made of two hexagon and biggest pieces is made of seven hexagon. Some people find some puzzles made from mathematical sets more valuable. Some people want that all pieces made from same number of hexagons. I dont agrre with this opinions. For me puzzles are for playing and for fun.
