right top: 1.3" x 4.2" x 1" box and and same cubes as puzzle on left)
Similar in name and theme to the
Allies Flag Puzzle,
cubes have flags from World War I
(U.S., British, Red Cross, Russian, Republic Of China).
the object is to arrange the five cubes in a line so that each side has no duplicate flags.
Here is a solution and its corresponding graph
(constructed in the same way as for Instant Insanity):
cycle 1: US - 1 - Russian - 4 - British - 3 - Red Cross - 2 - Republic Of China - 5 - US
cycle 2: US - 2 - Russian - 3 - British - 4 - Red Cross - 4 - Republic Of China - 1 - US
