Hello Twisty Puzzlers,

In this picture I show you a puzzle, that I'm trying to solve at the moment.

I want to know if you can guess what it is.
It's a puzzle that is not as easy to solve as some may think, at least for me ^^

Maybe we can make a quiz series out of this if there are other persons that want to show some hard to recognize puzzles :D

greetings
David

It's a mixup 4x4? It doesn't look like it though-perhaps it is a SQ224 mod?

Looks like a piece swap between a Witeden SSQ1 2x2 and their same-sized 4x4?

Yes, Jared and Ben are right :)
It's a Mini 4x4x4 with just one square 2 layer. This way I can scramble it in very unexpected ways. I solved it now, hardest part is the reparation of the square 2 layer. After that you can reduce it to a 4x4x4 Ai Bandage cube.

Have some of you also combined puzzles like that or other strange looking puzzles ? please post them here :D

Well it looks the same as the normal 4x4x4 only that the center pieces of one layer (sq2) are a little wider then the others(and the edges smaller). But you can't see that at the first glance.
I have already build it back into the normal 4x4x4 so I can't take a picture at the moment, but I'm not even sure if you could see the difference on a picture.

Another thing I did was exchanging only the edges and leave the normal 4x4x4 centers. That way you could make the normal 4x4x4 middle layer moves through the layer with the sq2 pieces but also with a little fudging the sq2 moves.. That was really weird but didn't worked that well.

edit: If you look at the picture you can see that the red sq2 center piece on the right side is a little higher then the yellow piece beside it. Also the blue center piece on the left is wider then the blue center piece beneath it.

You mean changing the two mini 4x4's layer into SQ224's layer? They're exactly the same from the outlook. I didn't think of making this easy mod before. May be try it somedays later~

Nice one~

No, just one layer, if you exchange both layers you still have a sq2x2x4 with another shape. Solving wise it is more like the 2x2x3 Camouflage II with a few extras because the normal 4x4x4 pieces can get mixed into the sq2 layer. After solving the sq2 layer its a bandaged 4x4x4 cube
