I present you the new design for the magic myths. I just can't wait for the tiles to arrive any more LOL. I hope you like it.
I have created so far, a 5-tile, 7-tile, and 9-tile magic myths.
The one above is a 7-tile one (using my testing tiles, so please forgive me that there is no theme on those).
You need to notice that there is a consistent and smooth continuity on the stringing that preserves
the stability just like in a normal rubiks magic. In other words, if they had inifinite tiles, you would't be able to distinguish this type of stringing from a normal rubik's magic!
Just think of it as a form of mobius type of stringing
The only catch(?), is that they can never be flat
But in my opinion, that is not a disadvantage. There are similar movements to the magics we all know, but because of its 3-d state, some are not similar at all!!! It moves very nice and it is very very puzzling! (It is a puzzle after all)
The templates are ready and I am (still LOL) waiting for the tiles to arrive. The names of those puzzles as well as their themes are already given as:
5-tile: The Magic Thrones of the Gods
(two different states, one with the throne of Zeus and another one with Poseidon's!)
7-tile: The Magic Wrath of the Cyclops
(one state will look like a Cyclops foot - second image above - and the other state will look like his lair).
9-tile: The Magic Secret of Atlantis
(one state will look like and ancient column, and the other one as an Atlantian fish!)
I have also developed another 5-tile template, where not one, not two, but three(!!!) secret and dangerous (strings could come off) moves are required to bring it into a cube form! (of course, one side of this cube is open).
That one will be Pandora's Magic Box
More pictures in the future!
(please be easy with me, I am crazily busy, I can't even chat on MSN with David any more LOL - sorry David!)
