Today I received the UNSCRAMBLED puzzle, made by Oskar van Deventer and our very own Bram Cohen.

It is much looser than I had imagined but it is still a fantastic puzzle. I'm definitely glad I snatched up the chance to get this puzzle.

Although I was informed it would take 21 or 22 moves in order to correctly disassemble it, mine seems to have the ability to do it in one.

Starting in the beginning state: (Lower case means upside down.)

UNS-CRAMBL-ED
UNS-lbmarc-ED

After a bit of very light jiggling, the two halves will easily come apart.

This puzzle is supposed to be very very difficult. I hope to do a lot of writing on the puzzle, help finding all of the combinations, as well as find solutions for each position if possible.

Hopefully a video in the next day or so.

NOTE: I will not provide information as to how I obtained this puzzle, as I don't feel it is my information to give away.

Regards,
Noah

Hi :-)

Can i find it on bit-torrent ? :lol:

I been doing some thinking about this puzzle. If the main problem is to keep track of which twists are possible - it doesn't seem like a very good puzzle for me. That would be like the black hole puzzle, where most of the time is spent looking for the next piece. In short, puzzles with hard recognition i don't like. They don't easily lend themselves to speeding.

Am i the only one thinking like this? Of course i haven't touched this puzzle yet :wink:

perfredlund, this is a bandaged puzzle, so yes it has the property that not all moves can be done from each position, but that just makes it of a different genre than rubik's cube. Some people love bandage puzzles, some people hate them, it's really a matter of taste. For people who are into bandage puzzles, this should be a very interesting one.
