  • Step 1

    Form a circle of 6 Speks. Place one Spek in the center of the circle, then add one on the outside like so.

  • Step 2

    With a different color, wrap a chain of 13 Speks around the edge to create an irregular pentagon. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until you have a total of 30 irregular pentagons.

  • Step 3

    Align 3 irregular pentagons like so, then bring the two outside edges together to form a pyramid.

  • Step 4

    Using your thumbs and index fingers, push the bottom edges and interior of the pyramids together to form this unit. Repeat until you have 10 units.

  • Step 5

    Begin attaching each unit by aligning the 3-Spek edges.

  • Step 6

    Once you have formed two rings of 5, attach them by aligning the remaining 3-Spek edges.
