# Soma Cube in a Dee Cube!

## What's a Soma Cube?

It's a 3x3x3 cube that can be built using only some of the pieces of the Dee Cube. Just use the 7 pieces shown in the picture, and you'll be able to make a 3x3x3 cube.

It's

**easier** than the Dee Cube so you might want to start with this puzzle before attempting the 4x4x4 cube.

You can make many other shapes with the Soma Cube pieces. Only a few of them are shown here.
