I know this puzzle has been on this website before, but as far as I know I am the first to have a Pochmann teraminx with this color scheme. Big thanks to Oliver for reprinting the stickers twice until they were perfect! I am about to solve it for the second time. The first time it took about 4 hours rather than 2 for a normal teraminx.

The part of the Teraminx that takes the longest is finding the right parts... With this sticker mod... **shudder**

It is a great sticker mod and it would be a good use for a Teraminx that is being under used. The new stickers add a lot of complexity to piece finding, so I am curious to know how your future solve times develop as you gain more experience with solving the Pochmann version of the Teraminx.

I actually specifically bought this teraminx for this puzzle. I purchased it on eBay for $53. Since I know you have a Petaminx (I watched your unboxing :D ), I know you know what it turns like. The Teraminx I used for this puzzle turns about equally as well. I'm still solving it because I had a load of homework to do. I'll tell you how long it took when I'm finished.

Most of us are biased towards non super puzzles because the original Rubik's Cube never had super centres. If it had then the puzzle world would be a little different. Well done on making and taking on the ultimate Teraminx challenge.

I solved it! Sorry, I know the picture was upside down the first time. It's some weird quirk with the iPad camera. It took about 3.5 hours total to solve it this time.
