Suppose you have nine cubes that are arranged in a 3x3 conformation. Then take out the middle cube. Would such a conformation be possible on the DAT or would this be considered a "floating cube?" For example, can a cube stand on "its own" without a cube supporting the bottom? Can we assume that since the cubes are glued/cemented together, support on the sides of the cube is enough to keep it "floating?"

Thanks! (sorry if this doesn't make sense :rolleyes:)

I don't think they do that. Doesn't it say in the instructions somewhere that you can assume all cubes are supported by other cubes? (Meaning no cubes are floating.)

hey chickensoup

no, there are no floating cubes or illusions on the real DAT's cube counting.
Crack Dat PAT has some illusions, but real DAT has none.

I agree with everyone above. there are no such things as a floating cube on the DAT. There may be hidden cubes, but based on what is visible, you can always make an accurate assumption about where the cubes are that you cannot see.

good luck!
