Objective
Take apart and reassemble the puzzle

This puzzle mimics the external appearance of a traditionnal 18-piece cross, but features very stange pieces instead. It follows that during the disassembling sequence, it is difficult to know if a given piece can move, because we can't guess where the other end is located.

In 2012 confusion and utter disorder return, Alfons Eyckmans made a second version of Chaos which has 3 colors for decorative purposes. With this new model Alfons made reassembly more difficult by introducing multiple colors. The unfortunate puzzler will experience chaos while trying to reassemble this puzzle.
