MiniMatch-II: the Origami version

Mick Guy, chairman of the British Origami Society, has designed a paper-folding teaching module using the 9 MiniMatch-II tiles. He calls them Singapore Squares. His instructions show how to fold paper squares in four colors into the 9 interlocked, interwoven color patterns. A special challenge was to design the folds so the color would occur only on one side, leaving the back blank.

Mick introduced them at an origami convention in Nottingham, England, on April 9, 2005. He reports, "Well, MiniMatch-II in Origami really went down well. Some were up to 2am trying to work it out." Most players eventually found a color-matched solution. Congratulations, all! The kit is not available as a product. It was only a one-time convention event. But you can inquire to Mick if you want to know more about this intriguing art form.
