Hi,

When I first saw the ghost cube sometime ago, I realized how nice jumbling puzzles look when stickered black over white body ... and so I created the black on white family.

Image

(those are extended 3x3x4 and 3x3x5)


Image

(when jumbled, the inner white parts are more visible, adding to the effect)


I have one fisher cube pending to be added (once I get the stickers for it) and of course, the inspiration for the family, the ghost cube, is still missing ... :cry: ... maybe now that the helicopter cube is out, the TwistyStore will decide to make it again.


Hope you like them :wink:

I've always agreed with this. :D They look fantastic - simple idea, brilliant effect. :D

I'm a bit confused about that 3x3x4-if it's the C4Y version it doesn't shapeshift so it would therefore be unscrambleable and unsolveable (unless it's an extended 3x3x4 or a custom "Off-center" 3x3x4 made by making a 3x3x5 on only half of the cube)

It's a 3x3x4 extended.

Very nice! I actually stickered my gold golden cube with black stickers and it has a similar effect.

looks really nice as a family! but be aware that while all of these puzzles shape shift, I believe the only puzzles that jumbles is the square 1.

Technically, depending what definition, the SQ-1 doesn't jumble either. Or it does.

I don't even know what I was getting at. Some people define jumble-ness as not being able to be "unbandaged" to become a regular puzzle. With the SQ-1, it definitely blocks turns when it's shifted, so I guess it's jumbled. But you can "unbandage" the corners to get a Square-2, which doesn't have this problem. But you could also cut the pieces again and again and again.

Weird that I never thought about it as a jumbling puzzle before though.

You are right about the jumbling comment. I actually wanted to say "shape shifting", which is the relevant property for these puzzles.

Jumbling puzzles by default allow cuts to occur on a partial turn, in many cases the angle is irrational, as in the Helicopter Cube.

If one considers the edge-turning tetrahedron, or Master Pyramophix, as only 180 degree turns permitted which return the puzzle to it's initial state, than on a stretch, you could call the 90-degree move a "jumble", althogh it certainly doesn't block anything. You've just unlocked the cubic 3x3x3 geometry class. An irrational rotation is guaranteed to bandage a lot of cutting planes, hence the ~71 degree splice more on the Helicopter and Crazy Comet. If a published solution is to occur, they will have to come up with some special notation for this unique move. Maybe Japp could devise up something on his Puzzle Page. :scrambled:
