Recently I have been playing with my dogics. Here are some pictures of the fun I have had with them. I feel that a dogic can be played with like it was intended but in addition I have fun making new designs and color variations. When Mefferts reproduced the dogic he made them with a 2, 5, 10, 12, and 20 color variations. I have been trying to make all the other variations I can, here are some pictures of my dogic variations.

Box of Dogics that I started with and spare parts. It took me a while to collect these and spent a lot of money on them. I have all 5 dogics and now a few more for spares.

Very nice!

I like Pac-Man and the simplicity of the all black centers.

Now for a challenge :twisted: . Try solving the 5-color Dogic such that when looking at each of the 12 vertices, each vertex has all 5 colors around it, and each vertex has the colors in a different order.

I think you'll find this significantly more challenging that it might seem at first.
