I'm not sure if this idea has been tried before:

Block the rotation of 2 opposite (top and bottom) centers, so that the only permitted moves are F, B, L and R.

Any thoughts?

I have a cube like that made by SmaZ, but it's an edges only cube.

Effectively, yes, but one could bandage internally just by supeglueing the center cubes directly to the core, rather than to each other. :wink:

Actually that puzzle is different because it allows slice moves between the centers that are blocked. You bandage would make it so that only the F, L, B, and R faces would turn. The one described is technically that, but allows the extra E slice move. So as far as I know, your puzzle would be unique.

Or you could build it with a 2/3face kit. The 3faces have the 0face locking to the core mechanism, which is just like gluing without the glue. It's essentially Saturn without circles.

I guessed as much, if anyone had done this, it would have been you! :lol:
