Hmm, I thought the prototype (the all orange ones) were 5 layers. I wonder why they changed them.

In what possible way is this an April's Fools Day joke? The puzzles have been talked about before, and prototypes have been seen before too. Why would this be a joke?

Exactly. I am looking forward to these puzzles, but I too want unbandaged version(s) to be made available.

There were 3 and 5 layer orange cubes. Crazy ones and not so crazy ones (although my thought on the not so crazy might just be crazy)

Some of the bits are too small for stickers.

I'm just sad that there isn't a "make them all kit"

The preorder page has 3 layer and 5 layer standard and crazy 3 layer, but I don't see the crazy 5 layer from the earlier picture (or is that the "Super 5 Layers"). These look like fun, but how to choose just a couple of planets?

First, coloured plastic! Yay!

Second, would someone mind explaining all the variants to me? I guess what I mean is: Is there a method they came up with to make the face types on the 8 planet variants?

On nowstore, I see

Super 5-Layers Pentahedron
Standard 5-Layers
Standard 3-Layers
Then crazy pentahedron of all 8 planets, but some planets are priced higher than others

Calvin, will there be a (rather large) discount for those who buy all 11 puzzles together? That's an awful lot of money otherwise.

These look nice but expensive. Most average people don't have the money at their disposal to get the whole set-especially when it's essentially buying the same puzzle just different configurations. Not as pricey as the crazy megaminx but still up there. Purchasing 1 or 2 might be in order though. :)

Hmm...nice, except that I never took a fancy to solid colours. They make the puzzle more expensive.

Nonetheless, I have to admit that this is great! :) This is one step closer to mass-producing the pentagonal prism:

Due to their price I think I'm just going to get the standard ones instead of all of the crazy planets.

Last two series of planets was so hard to edit and enter in the museum that I am really afraid about this one.

Any volunteers: Who will be the one to buy them all and make images for me?

I’m really not upset about the colored plastic as I do like it with some puzzles and the circle/crazy puzzles seem to work well this way. What I don’t care for is the pillowed shape. The only time I really accept pillowing is when it is needed for the stability of the puzzle. These don’t need it. I do understand why so many manufactures like to pillow triangular shapes as it does reduce the overall size of the puzzle (less plastic used, lower packaging and shipping costs) but I still prefer the non-pillowed ones instead.

On nowstore website, they range from $28.99 to $34.99 to $39.99. Way too expensive for most people to be buying the whole set.

Actually, I see calvin has put a couple of bulk deals on his site:

The whole set of 11 is $340 (http://www.hknowstore.com/locale/en-US/ ... 7b8549dfb3) which saves $64 from buying individually.

Also, there's a set of 3 special versions for $98 (http://www.hknowstore.com/locale/en-US/ ... ed3353770d) which saves $6.

And you can get the 8 planets for $256 (http://www.hknowstore.com/locale/en-US/ ... 3d526e4ba5) whcih saves $44.

Andreas, I'm planning on buying them all as long as there's a fairly good deal for the whole lot. By which I mean more than a couple of dollars off the total price. And given the $340 price, I *think* I will.

de ja vu...

Why can't all the people who hate coloured plastic stop whining about it?!? Complain to the manufacturer!
Coloured plastic are far superior for those people who actually like to play with their puzzles multiple times (as opposed to putting them on their shelf to add to their collection). No stickers peeling off, and the plastic shines up really nicely after a while.

Does anyone know whether the "standard" (non-circle) version is a special edition, or a regular production? I can't afford to get one right now, and it's the only one I'm interested in. I hope it will be available later...

It's the Uranus one right? So I suppose it's a normal production, but I could be wrong.

I love colored plasic.

The purple color is beautifull, so I programmed a simulator for this.

First sequence change 3 centers:

Hi everybody,

someone asked me to run this on a mac.

It's possible to compile the source code on linux. Perhaps it's possible to compile it with x-code on the mac.
The program is written in C++ and uses the Qt 4 library.

Cheers,

Andrea

Hi Andrea,

thank you for sharing this program with us.
Have you ordered the complete set? (11 puzzles)
So far, I ordered the 3 special puzzles and wait for opinions which of the planets are the more interesting versions.

I'm unsure. It's a lot of money for a poor girl. I wrote the program to check how interesting are these puzzles.
The puzzles are very interesting and beautifull. But I want TomZ's 446, too.
Perhaps I order the 8 Planets. To learn this puzzle it's good to use the standard without circles, I think.


Cheers,
Andrea

Thanks so much for doing this. I'm amazed at your ability to just whip up a simulator for it. Very much appreciated.

Perhaps the easiest are "Standard" and "Jupiter"

Solution with 4 Sequences [spoiler]
1) Corners 3 cycle
b D b D'

2) middle layer
E R E' R ( 3 cycle)
( E b E'b) x 3 -> flip 2 edges

3) edges 3 cycle
(R U R U') x 5

Notation:
B L R ( Turn back, left , right outer face)
b l r ( Turn coresponding vertices)
U U' D D' E E' ( horizontal layer )
Z ( upside down)
y ( turn prism)

[spoiler]

Cheers,
Andrea

Hi Andrea

I've used completely different sequences to yours and a different method I think, more a reduction type method. (I'm assuming your spoiler is for standard, not jupiter? So my "reduction" method is for mercury and jupiter so far.) I'd say mercury's easier than jupiter so far. EDIT: No it's not.

I want to thank you again for providing this to play with. It's fantastic! A couple of requests: can the reset button have a keystroke attached, and also how hard is it to enable the puzzle to freely rotate so that there can be, say, a face at front, instead of an edge? I guess then there would need to be the ability to enter F turns as well.

The solution in in spoiler works for standard and jupiter. On jupiter first step solve intuitive the inner circles, then corners, then the rest.
(edit)
With one more sequence you can solve the Uranus:
( alternative corner 3 cycle without destroying circle edges)
[spoiler]
R U R U R U' R U

[/spoiler]

It is possible. Than I must write the program complete new. ( With opengl 3d)
I programed with this funktionality ( 3d , free rotating , mouse input etc) for Bermuda Cubes. In the thread "Solving Bermuda Cubes"
No people are interested for this. No reply in this thread.

The Pentahedrons I cannot program with opengl. It's to complex. There are round (spherical) pieces.
You can use vetices turns l b r or z ( upside down) But a new graphical position is to complex.

Cheers,
Andrea

PS: solved prisms with simulator Standard, Jupiter , Uranus, Mercury

Hi everybody,

someone asked me, to include 5 layer to the pentahedron. Ok, I did this.
I put the pentahedron, bermuda and circlecube/cuboid345 together in one program.
I wrote it to a different thread because it's not the right place here, I think.

look at

much fun

Cheers,
Andrea

If a tetrahedron has four sides, then a pentahedron has five :lol:

When a company only thinks of making profit with easy variants of the same puzzle all using the same mold, they call them planets. In other words if you want to collect, it costs 300$ to get a set :P
