There are more. Answered

Most puzzles on instructables that I've found have been common 3x3x3's, and maybe a magnetic 2x2x2 :):) (courtesy of burzvingion). Does anybody know that there are like... BILLIONS of other types of twisty puzzles? I'll upload some pics of examples. any questions of what they are and I'll answer them.

YES!!! Finally someone that (just like I do) realizes instructables has nothing on different twisty puzzles, I mean, what about Square-1, Skewb, Megaminx, Pyraminx, etc.

YES. I got my v-cube 7 (the farthest left in the pictures) for christmas. yes, odd numbered puzzles are much harder than even numbered, because on odd numbers you have a set center. sudocubes CAN have more than one solution, depending on the brand of cube you get.

Did you do a ible on making odd number cubes or a basic idea on how to solve them because it be pretty cool if you did one.

I made an instructable, the method I used is usable for any cube over 3x3, but I use it on the 7x7 when I do virtual solves until I get my real 7x7. Don't know what you're saying though super genius, about the even being more difficult, It's way easier than the even cubes, because you know where each center should be. And, I hate parity errors that don't let me get a cross with a passion.

These cubes only bring me nightmares!!! :D If i get one, I will not stop until I solve it! I never seen the triangle one,Master Tetrahedron, look very interesting a demanding...as well as the Gigaminx.

I believe I have fooled around with a friend's tetrahedron, and if I am not mistaken, they are not so difficult.....but it has been awhile so I might not remember that correctly.

probably just a pyraminx. tetrahedrons are VERY challenging, especially masters.

I knew that. Look up "Rubiks Collections" on Youtube.

That actually makes it easier now you have more than one solution

Have you tried one? In much the same way that "orange face up" is not really a different solution than ending up with the orange face down, does that mean that the Sudokube has more than one solution. Do you know what I mean?

yes most definently The orange face up is not really a different solution because on odd number cubes, the centers are fixated, so really it cannot be considered an new solution. For the sudokube's centers doesnt matter like the 3x3x3 for example the top side can be 132849576, 123456789, 987654321,ect

Or, each of those choices could also be the side or bottom, right ?

Maybe there are fewer paths towards solving the sudokube but it is still intriguing in it's own right :-)

I have solved up to a 5 and my brother has 7x7x7 on his wish list many people dont know, but the 5 and 7 are easier than the 4 and 6
