A restricted 3x3x3. It allows only wide turn.
This 3x3x3 is a complete new design. It was inspired by a discussion on the forum of this website.
It acts like a Rubik's Cube with blocked layers. Only three layers can turn, i.e. those in which the rounded "enabler" cubie resides. This puzzle is sort-of the opposite of Fused Cube, where the three layers of the special corner cubie cannot turn.
Another explanation would be: Only three adjacent wide moves (face turn plue underlying slice move) are allowed.
Like the Fused Cube, the Enabler Cube is a doctrinaire twisty puzzle.
The number of permutations of this cube is 1/2 of the number for the unrestricted cube.
If you're looking to buy, eBay is the one place you can find almost anything... if you're willing to wait for it, then pay the price!
