Early civilizations shaped our world by solving puzzles.  Faced with a problem they were able to visualize and execute a creative solution with few resources.  These brilliant innovations are the foundations of our modern society and the mark of True Genius.

The people of ancient China had a particular interest in numbers and mathematical patterns and even believed certain numbers to be otherworldly.  Ancient Chinese scholars gave high significance to a particular pattern called the Magic Square - a square consisting of a series of numbers where every row, column, and diagonal line add up to the same number.  Lo Shu's Magic Square dates as far back as 650 BC and added up to 15.  Our modern twist on this ancient treasure challenges you to find a higher number (38) and pit your wits against Lo Shu's true genius.

Goal: Arrange the numbers so that they add up to 38 across all 15 rows (5 Horizontal & 10 Diagonal)

Difficulty: 4/4
