I asked Greg to help me by filling up long time missed cuboids in my collection.

Today I presented three new twisty puzzles. I started with the "simplest"

2x2x14

Superb puzzle. Good luck in filling up your cuboids collection. Me thinks you won't do it.

But you have yet to beat Oskar's Overlap Cube... with a 2x2x24?! *is scared at the possibility*

Sure, it is a fantastic puzzle, but I don't really like how the outer most pieces start turning in place (after shape shifting, for example)...I think if you added a kind of clicking to it (like on a skewb), it would be even nicer.
