Hexed by Kohner - A Proto-Tetris?

Found this during a recent move. Kohner put out several versions of Hexed from 1968 to 1974. This edition was bought for 69 cents in a drug store in 1973.

All you do is dump out the pieces, and put them back into the box.
Sometimes you can solve it in a minute, other times it takes several hours.

Here's a solution that's not printed on the box.

Maybe Hexed was an inspiration to the creators of Tetris. Only the lawyers know.

We haven't been able to solve ours and it's totally frustrating me and my daughter...

I received my HEXED on Christmas 1979. I have not traced any solutions lately. Personally I have over 100.And my box looks better than any on ebay
