Here's a quick and easy, but fun sticker variation of the Square-1. I call it the Crooked-1.
Solving it is probably not much more difficult than a regular Square-1, but I think it looks pretty cool.

Thats cools. I wonder how much the difficulty of the puzzle would change.

I'm sure not much as long as you knew what colors belonged on which side... It would be interesting.

You know, sometimes the most simplest way of looking at things can create new ways of looking at things! lol


Creative sticker design. ;)

By my awesome powers of reasoning, this neither a cylinder nor a cube! (okay Square-1s aren't cubic in the first place, but the joke is there.)

In fact, only 2 other people here will get it.....

I was thinking... you could shave this position back into a more cubic shape. That would be awesome. I might do that.

Can you say "pseudo F2L"? ;-) Great idea. I love the simplicity of it.

I'd say my favorite thing about Thomas is even when he makes simple mods they look so good
