What is a 'Jeorge Puzzler'?

Learn more about JeorgeHey Doug, you know, the other day I was thinking about Rickie Puzzlers...
Learn more about JeorgeAnd I got to thinking, the reason why Rickie Puzzlers work is because if you add all the numbers from 1 to 8, they add up to 36, which is a perfect square
That's exactly right. So the pieces can all fit together in a 6x6 square.

I'm sure you're right about that, Jeorge!

You mean, like 1 + 3 + 5 + 7?
Learn more about JeorgeThat's right. Only, if you add in 9 and 11 as well, you come up with 36
So we could take all the odd numbers from 1 to 11 and use them to create a puzzle that's also 6x6!

Hey, now. Wait a minute...you're calling this a Jeorge Puzzler?
Learn more about JeorgeThat's right! Because I invented it! And you can create a Jeorge Puzzler too! Just make sure you use pieces with 1 square, 3 squares, 5 squares, and so on up to 11 squares, and make sure they all fit together into a 6x6 box.
Very nice, Jeorge!
