Each side of the box with four others. Pay attention to how each side connects to four other sides of the cube and in what arrangement.

Do this other sides of the cube and you'll find an inconsistency that differentiates the odd cube out.

From what you can see in boxes A and C, you know that the star is connected square, sun, heart, and diamond. It doesn't touch the X.

According to boxes B and D, the X touches the heart, sun, square, and diamond.

Hey, Wait a second! There's something fishy about one of those arrangements.

Box A is one of the three identical boxes.

The face with the X is directly opposite the face with the star.

Use these two clues to see it they apply to boxes B, C, and D. They won't hold true to one of these boxes.




Try to picture how the boxes look unfolded.


Good Thinking!

If you break down boxes A, B, and C, you can see that they all share the same arrangement of decorations.

However, when you break down box D, you can see that its faces are arrangement in a slightly different manor, and might look something like the above diagram. However, you can't know for sure, because the other three faces of box D are unknown.
