Troll Cube 1 http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=24122


Troll Cube 2 is another simple sticker mod possible to generate numerous parities. (edge flip, corner turn, edge/corner swap) The idea is to strip many stickers under the condition:
1) Troll Cube 2 should be identical to 3x3x3 cube.
2) Troll Cube 2 should troll you.
I don't believe this cube maximized the number of teared stickers, but hey. 8-)

This is what a scrambled Troll Cube 2 looks like.

The goal of the cube is simply putting all the same stickers in same face.
This is what a FAIL looks like.

Troll cube 2 is mathematically identical to Rubik's cube, and have only one pattern solved. Thus, theoretically, you have only one way to re-sticker it to make a normal cube.
I will not upload solved pattern in this thread.




= How to make a (scrambled) Troll Cube 2 =

1) You need 1 solved cube. If you have blank cube and some stickers, go to 3).

2) Scramble: B F L2 D' L D' B U F B2 L2 U2 R2 U' L2 F B' R D' F2 B D B' U' L2 D (White Up, Green Front)

If you have blank cube and some stickers, just sticker them like above.
I'm explaining in a hard way because it's recommended not to know the solved pattern at all. (If you memorize the pattern, this is identical to normal 3x3x3 cube)

4) Scramble little more, and go for it! (The solved pattern should follow the official cube color arrangement)

This reminds me of a discussion we had a few years ago about the most stickers you could take off and still have 1 solved solution.

Lemme see if I can dig it up...

Yeah i wanna mention that it won't maybe the case with the most stickers ripped off at possible.

Uiqoo gave more importance to how many pieces should the player move when the parity occurs - in other words, "Trollyness"

But i can certainly say when very first of this project the theme of the puzzle used to be that.

Thanks for this, it was super fun! I was actually a little disappointed on how easy it was. Maybe it was just the scramble, or maybe I just got lucky. If anyone needs the solution let me know ;)
