Polyominoes are polyforms constructed from unit squares joined edge-to-edge on a regular two-dimensional Cartesian plane. The name comes from dominoes; one domino is composed of two ("d-", short for "di-") unit squares ("-omino"). Here is a puzzle containing all the polyominoes of order 1 through 5.Polyominoes of Order 1 Through 4.

These puzzles use the 1 monomino, 1 domino, 2 trominoes, and 5 tetrominoes, for a total of 29 squares. Square-plus (design from Kadon / Kate Jones): solutions 7x3-plus (design by Dan Klarskov): 17 solutions Skewered square (design by Dan Klarskov): 1, solutions Skewered 9x3 rectangle (design by Dan Klarskov): 5, solutions.Pentominoes were formally defined by American professor Solomon W.
