Disassemble and reassemble the 18 piece burr.

Hunchback 40 is a unique burr, which is named after the peculiar burr pieces that construct it. Most of these burr pieces have extra protrusions that give them a "hunchback" appearance.

Many of Alfons' 18 piece burrs have burr sticks with a 2x2x8 dimension but these "hunchback" pieces have 2x3x8 or 3x2x8 dimensions. These strange burr sticks result in a burr which requires more studying of the pieces than just random pulling and prodding.

The "hunchback" pieces restrict movement to many adjacent pieces.

Hunchback 40 is part of the "Hunchback" series, which inludes: Hunchback 32 and Hunchback 35, Hunchback 54.
