Introduction: Lego Stacked Sticks Interlocking Puzzle



This puzzle slides together quite easily, if you know the trick! Try to put the pieces together in the wrong order and they will block each other from interlocking. 

Step 1: The Parts

You will need:
-128 1x2 plates
-12 2x2 plates
-52 2x2 tiles

Step 2: The Sticks

Each piece that you need to make will be a 2x8 stick that is made of a combination of plates and tile. There is an entirely smooth one, and two types with a 2x2 plate on them, either at the very top or two studs down. The picture shows all the parts you need to make. 

Each part is made of of 4 of these sticks, 3 with a 2x2 plate and one smooth one on top. 

Step 3: Part A

Follow the pictures to build Part A.

Step 4: Part B

Follow the pictures to build Part B.

Step 5: Part C

Follow the pictures to build Part C.

Step 6: Part D

Follow the pictures to build Part D.

Step 7: Solving the Puzzle

I built a nano one. It works just the same. When it was finished, it was 4x4 on the top

I built a mini one a couple years ago! instead of 2x8 sticks, I did 1x4 sticks.

Did it stay together? I imagine with only one connection point for the parts that it'd be pretty difficult to handle the puzzle.

Thanks! I tried to get out as much stuff as I could for the Toy Challenge 2 but I have a few more things that I'd like to post in the future.
