This Pyramid Puzzle challenges you to assemble the nine pieces to make a pyramid shape. No squares of the same color touch each other. Pieces may be rotated, but not overlapped or flipped.
This puzzle uses the exact same game pieces as the Beehive Puzzle I shared last week. So, if you’ve already printed that puzzle, you just have to print this new puzzle board for twice the geometric puzzling fun.
This puzzle is from The Big, Big, Big Book of Brainteasers.
This book (one of my fave puzzle books!) is out of print and only available as a used book on Amazon, but you can still access quite a few of the puzzles for free, though.
Amazon’s Look Inside Feature lets you look at quite a few of the puzzles in The Big, Big, Big Book of Brainteasers for free. Just keep clicking “Surprise Me!” on the left pane to see a different page of puzzles.
I highly recommend printing the game pieces on colored paper to make it easier to see which squares of the pyramid have been covered.
The gameboard is printed on 11 x 17 cardstock. If you don’t have the ability to print on this size of paper, I have also uploaded a letter-sized version.

I intentionally do not make answers to the printable math puzzles I share on my blog available online because I strive to provide learning experiences for my students that are non-google-able. I would like other teachers to be able to use these puzzles in their classrooms as well without the solutions being easily found on the Internet.
However, I do recognize that us teachers are busy people and sometimes need to quickly reference an answer key to see if a student has solved a puzzle correctly or to see if they have interpreted the instructions properly.
If you are a teacher who is using these puzzles in your classroom, please send me an email at email@example.com with information about what you teach and where you teach. I will be happy to forward an answer key to you.
