The Plan

An overview of what we are going to create in this chapter.

In this last part of the course, we’ll be building the game of Pentominoes—the favorite game of legendary CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite. Pentominoes is something like a cross between Tetris and a puzzle. The player is presented with a set of shapes called “pentominoes” and a game board of a certain size. The player must figure out how to place all of the pentominoes on the board so that they fit together to evenly cover all of the available space, like a puzzle.

Each pentomino is a shape composed of five even squares joined together. There are 12 basic shapes.
