Original comments

Combining two into a Large Triangle might not work well, as joining two would lead to a Strange Stone Diamond, which does't exist (yet?). The fact that it's Usable tells me that you may have to collect and multi-use *four* of them...--AltyMcAltAlt 08:28, 10 December 2007 (CST)

Well, if you join two triangles, so two of the sides go like so- _||_ with / and \ in th e appropriate spot, you end up with a bigger triangle. (Which will also be equilateral.) This can be repeated to make a stone square., by making an "equilateral diamond"... Then turning the triangle 45*. The problem in testing this would be getting the triangles in the first place, I suppose. - Mojotech

  • The description says it's an equilateral triangle, all sides are equal length, which means you don't have a 90degree angle (all angles are 60degress) so your example does not work and the original statement holds. Two identical equilateral triangles will not combine into another triangle. --Plater (t|c) 13:32, 10 December 2007 (CST)
  • This is correct. If you combine two, you'll get either a parallelogram or a diamond, depending on the orientation you choose. If you want a new, larger triangle, you need to use four. -Debs 16:27, 10 December 2007 (CST)

This is just a thought, but I've been playing Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker lately at my friend's house. In it, you have to use a crane to pull up the three pieces of the Triforce from the deep, which are, coincidentally, triangles. I don't think the angles and what not really matter, maybe try using one when you have exactly three in your inventory? It might be something good, considering it has a "gimp" prize that goes with the triangles.--Steelchimera 15:37, 10 December 2007 (CST)

This triangle is 7 inches to a side, whereas the larger one is 9 inches. If Jick is actually following the laws of geometry, combining 4 would make something with 14 inches per side. Still probably worth a try, though. These things, as well as the spheres, are tradable; in the interest of spading, why don't we lend these to each other and find out? Do we know who has these (or the large ones?) EDIT: There are three sizes. Maybe using one with all three in inventory... --Ducksan 08:00, 11 December 2007 (CST)

After looking through the maths involved - area of the triangles and such - it seems unlikely that medium triangles would combine to make a large one. The simplest possible relationship (as far as I know) would be if each is made of n^2 'unit' triangles, with 'n' being the length of the side. (That is, the medium triangle is made of 49 tiny triangles and the large is made of 81). Has anyone tried pulverizing or untinkering them? --jolson4 10:43, 11 December 2007 (CST)

  • Wow, I feel like a fool. I meant to type "by the way" in the last update I made to the page, but put "FYI" there instead. Please, nobody think I'm trying to be a jackass. My brain just stopped working. --Southwest 20:35, 11 December 2007 (CST)
