    If at first you do succeed, you've probably missed something.

    The <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">not-so-lone-star-dodecahedron</span hide>


    (or the <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">dodecadodecahedron</span hide>)

    It looks like a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Ditrigonal Dodecadodecahedron</span hide>

    Re: Name that shape

    I may be correct about it not being a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">dodecadodecahedron</span hide>. But I am not certain if it is a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">ditrigonal dodecadodecahedron</span hide>....

    Re: Name that shape

    It's not the answer on the card I'm afraid, although I'm beginning to wonder if I've done a Rudi (i.e. more than one correct answer!)

    Certainly looks similar, but I don't think it's an exact match. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Name that shape

    If this is a Rudi then I am certain that this is the <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">did - dodecadodecahedron or did 12-12-0</span hide>

    found here

    Re: Name that shape

    <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> Maybe! The answer I have is a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Truncated great icosahedron</span hide>, found here. But have a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Truncated great icosahedron</span hide>-shaped choccy bar in any case (if you can find one <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>).
