Lee Sallows has made a bunch of magic squares using shapes rather than numbers. Each row of the center square above will combine to form a square of equal size. Each piece in the rows also happens to be of equal size for this rarer square. I like Lee's illustrations of his squares. Go here to see a lot more.
This might be a little too fiddly for a dungeon puzzle. I suppose you could have the shapes from one row lining a certain room in a mosaic signifying . . . something. Or you could give the players actual, tangible shapes and see if they can figure it out. But I just think it's cool.
Saw it first on Slashdot.
