1. Polydrafter

In recreational mathematics, a polydrafter is a polyform with a triangle as the base form. The triangle has angles of 30°, 60° and 90°, like a set square—hence the name. A polydrafter's cells are halves of the triangles in a plane grid of equilateral triangles. Unlike most polyforms, a polydrafter may have cells joined along unequal edges: a hypotenuse and a short leg. Polydrafters were invented by Christopher Monckton, who used the name polydudes for polydrafters that have no cells attached only by the length of a short leg. Monckton's Eternity Puzzle was composed of 209 12-dudes. The term polydrafter was coined by Ed Pegg, Jr. The 14 tridrafters—all possible clusters of three drafters—make an excellent small puzzle that is surprisingly difficult to solve by hand.
