I would show you how it started out looking before I messed it up, but I can’t… at least not yet… because I haven’t been able to solve it yet. 😉 But I have gotten one side figured out! So here’s a view of that side. You’ll just have to believe me that it’s a cube when it’s solved.
There are no colors–all sides are shiny silver. There are only different widths to tell you how to solve it. The 7-pieces-to-a-side cube above that my Mom got me does not move or solve anything like a regular cube. This one, on the other hand, solves exactly like a regular cube, except that you have to wrap your mind around the idea of solving for size instead of color. 🙂
Think that sounds easy? Well, here’s what it looks like messed up. Still sound easy? 😉
Actually, it isn’t all that hard. But it does require some brain adjustment, and that little bit of pause gives me a tiny chance of actually beating Kristin. I haven’t done it yet, but I’ve come within a second or so!
