All right, I finished all ten in around 40 minutes. My brain hurts, and I want to sleep now...

I finished them in about 10 minutes. I got all green dots except 1 yellow. What does that mean?

You're not finished. You have to have all yellow dots to have the correct number of cubes. Look in the window to see the amount allowed, and there is a counter under your build...

Did It! A little harder than the 1st time. You can see the proof Here (http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2006-2/1151485/finished_it.JPG)

Ok, I got all green except number 5 which is yellow. I will admit I figured out quickly on the first one to start with a full block and shoot out the holes on each view and then started over to get my time (yea yea cheater lol). The last one I got lucky and did it in maybe 2 minutes. Total time is 7 minutes (computer clock doesn't show seconds).

I then checked the video solutions and he did it like me .... yellow also. I for my life can't see any other solution. Anyone make #5 green?

Green is bad, Yellow is good. Green means you got the right view for each plane, but you have the wrong number of blocks. Yellow means you got the number of blocks and the profile for each view is correct. So you need to go back and get all the green turned to yellow. Then tell us your time!

I thought #10 was the easiest. From first sight to complete on that 1 was about 30 seconds for me.

The only way I was able to complete the entire puzzle with all yellow was to build up the blocks 4 high in shape of the pattern looking down two dimensionally. Then I would look at it from the side and front, removing the spaces that were required to make it look like the image. Then the remaining pieces that needed to be removed to get the count right were easy to figure out. That's why my time was so long...

i found the easiest way to get the puzzles done fast is to fill the area, take away the colums that cannot be seen from the top, then the front, then the right, and just take away pieces that are doubled up.

I found a glitch too!!! on puzzle 6 you can make it with 10 pieces but that gives to a green. you need to make it with 11

LOL how did I miss that about the yellow. Guess I should read closer lol. Anyway, it was much harder I'll admit. I took me 24 minutes to get all yellow. Finally...I can go to bed lol.
