AWESOME NUMBER 64
Every snaak is made of 64 interlocking cuboid units. The superperfect number sixty-four is the first whole number that is both a perfect square and a perfect cube.
It makes the 8 units by 8 units square, which is the iconic chess board. It makes the 4 x 4 x 4 units cube. It makes a hollow 4 x 4 x 4 cube with a 2 x 2 x 2 cube. It makes the eight cubes in a row and the eight diamonds, and other awesome snaak shapes - more snaak configurations than atoms in the universe!!!
