    Stack and whack is shaped differently from OBW, although they are both kaleidoscope variations. The cubes are from the OBW, not stack & whack. I don't know if they will mix. Stack & whack blocks are squares, and OBW blocks are hexagons.

    Trace out your shape (hex, square, ect), and draft your own cube, it is really easy. JUst look at a picture and make your "bars" about 1" wide, notice color placement, ect. No reason not to do this just because you do not have a pattern handy.

    It is my understanding that one block wonder blocks are made from equilateral triangles - all the angles are the same. 60, 60, and 60 degrees.

    The stack and whack ones have pieces that have a 45 degree angle where they come together in the center.

    Stack and whack are sewn together as a full block, one block wonder is sewn together with just half and then joined at an angle. At least the ones I did were.
