A Pentomino is a shape formed by 5 equal squares joined by edges.

There are 12 possible pentominoes (ignoring transformations)

Many puzzles and games use the pentomino pieces including tiling of rectangles and other simple shapes.

Making the pentominoes from cubes leads to a wider class of puzzles including space filling.
