Hi,

I concieved the idea for this series ca. 5 years ago but I had to wait until this year to get the first entry (except the 3x3x3!). During the DCD I purchased the other two needed puzzles from Oskar and TomZ.
Thank you two.

Looks like you have

G0 = <L, R, F, B, U, D>

G1 = <L, R, F, B, U2, D2>

G2 = <L, R, F2, B2, U2, D2>

G3 = <L2, R2, F2, B2, U2, D2>

I think you're ready to solve via Thistlethwaite's algorithm.

I think you have to explain the variations. The cube on the right is Oskar's?

bmenrigh got it and even made a very clever connection. Very good.

We have here:
1. An ordinary Rubiks Cube. 90°-moves are allowed on all three axis.
2. The "Limited to 180° on one axes" lately presented by TomZ.
3. grigr's Slim Cube: A 3x3x3 which allows halfturns and 90°-moves on one axes.
4. Oskar's HalfTurnCube. Purchased during DCD. Allows only 180°-moves.

In other words:
90-90-90
180-90-90
180-180-90
180-180-180
