This is a new puzzle of mine that is going to my good friend Claus. I hope he enjoys it. VIDEO! Spoiler for those who don't have youtube: it is a pillowed 2x3x3 where the pillowed layers can turn independently of the layer that they are pillowed two. If anyone can describe it better please make a better spoiler in a post.

So it looks like a domino, but isn't? Interesting. 3x3x4 domino.

So its not a Domino at all, instead a shaved down 3x3x4.

I dont get why you want to pillow this thing, when regular transformation is possible.

Or just wait for the production model to arrive. I know I do

Pillow the other faces too! I like this concept, but the pillowed layers are too pillowed. Still looks nice though.

Great puzzle and even better idea.

Yea, why mod a 3x3x4 into a different puzzle when you could have the 3x3x4? It is completely illogical...almost like modding a 3x3x3 when you could have a 3x3x3.

It is not for me, way back I recieved an order for a 2x3x3. Well, before I got to starting it the 3x3x4's came out. I was already going to make it off of the 3x3x4 but instead of gluing the top and bottom layers I asked him if he would mind if I left them as is and turnable. Thus the Tanner domino was made.

Such a lovely puzzle. Luckily I saw your youtube video before I saw this thread so all the spoilers didn't ruin the surprise for me :lol:

I forgot to adress that, I pillowed it so it would be the same size as a 3x3x3.

So it's basically a babyface 3x3x2? Nice idea.

Edit: I meant babyface on 2 sides.

I could have made it any where between 3x3x4 sized and 2x3x3 sized.
