I will mod a Mercury and a Jupiter to get a circle cube. I imagine that will be very challenging. After I solve that one, which other Crazy 3x3 Plus should I get?

If possible, I would like a list of how difficult each puzzle is. Thank you!

A circle cube isn't as hard as you might think. The extra pieces really only show you the orientation of the centers.
My favorite of the series (though I've only tried 2) is Jupiter. I'd say leave them as Mercury and Jupiter. Or at the very least get a Mercury and one of (Saturn, Uranus) to build a circle cube and Jupiter.


Are you getting stickered or colored plastic ones? I have a friend who really wants a colored plastic Jupiter but everywhere I look they seem to be out of stock.

It shouldn't be.

I will give my opinion of the order you should attempt them if you want to not get discouraged too early! This is based on reduction methods. if you do them solving the circle corners last, it probably doesn't make that much difference.

Circle
Jupiter
Uranus
Mercury
Earth
Venus
Neptune
Mars
Saturn

I have tutorials for all of these if you get stuck on my blog/youtube in my signature.

I've been dying to look for the colored plastic versions. They have a certain charm that the black plastic doesn't have. And I know someone on this forum selling colored plastic Crazy 3x3 pluses, but I am going through so much that I can't get them at this time :(
