What is a 'Jeorge Puzzler'?
 Yes? 
 And 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. 
 But then I got to thinking...there are probably other ways of making 36, besides 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 
 I'm sure you're right about that, Jeorge! 
 And that made me think...what about adding up odd numbers? 
 You mean, like 1 + 3 + 5 + 7? 
 That'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! 
 That's Right! And if you want to see a sample, here's one right here: Jeorge Puzzler 
 Hey, now. Wait a minute...you're calling this a Jeorge Puzzler? 
 That'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!
