Puzzle
- US Version
You must paint several cubes that will form a base platform when put together. All cubes are the same size, you have to paint them all at once, and you can only paint the visible sides of the base. For example, if you painted a base made up of two cubes, you would only paint four sides of each cube. If you wanted to make a base made up of cubes painted on one side, two sides, three sides, and four sides, what is the lowest number of cubes you would need? You can place cubes on top of each other.

You would need seven cubes. You need at least five cubes just to get a single cube with only one side painted. In order to paint one of those five cubes on two sides, you need to add another two cubes. Once that basic configuration has been made, the rest of the cubes should follow.
