When these shapes touch the shapes in other tiles, they form a new shape. These new shapes occur where corners meet and where sides touch.
These shapes may be open or closed. The shapes in the example above are open because they do not end at the sides of the block; they leave "openings" at every side. It may take more tiles to close the shapes.
This shape crosses six tiles before it closes.
Some shapes never close. I call them "stripes."
There are unique shapes for each unique arrangement of tiles . . . what shapes are in YOUR blocks??
