Hello,

I would like to present my new puzzle - Checker Cube. It was built from ordinary white 4x4 cube and has only black stickers (as checker board). It's funny to solve it. Enjoy!

Best regards,
Vladimir Yaroslavskiy

Nice idea, looks very clean. I had this idea a while back, I was going to make it with black and white 4x4x4s, and sticker them with opposite colours (black stickers on white plastic, and vice versa). So long as you know some super 4x4 cube centre solving algorithms, it should be quite easy.

Meffert's shop has a 4x4x4 DIY in one colour (black or white, I forgot which). Last year I asked if he had it in the opposite colour too, and explained why. He agreed that this design would look better on a 4x4x4 than the incomplete ILLusion on a 7x7x7, and he will send me e-mail again if he finds the second colour in the warehouse.

Well, while I've been waiting for that e-mail, you built yours. So which of us is the KO? :wink: :?:

These are black stickers on a white puzzle.

Meffert's isn't the only one with 4x4x4's.

My idea wouldn't have needed stickers.

Misread the post, I though you said Which one of us USED the KO.

My bad.
