A polyomino is a plane geometric figure formed by joining one or more equal squares edge to edge. It is a polyform whose cells are squares. It may be regarded as a finite subset of the regular square tiling. Polyominoes have been used in popular puzzles since at least , and the enumeration of pentominoes is dated to antiquity. Related to polyominoes are polyiamonds , formed from equilateral triangles ; polyhexes , formed from regular hexagons ; and other plane polyforms.
