As usual, I couldn't wait doing this, so here I present it to you...:"The Secret of Atlantis" Puzzle "Thousands years ago, there existed a powerful civilization, whose residents became very
corrupted by greed and power, and were destroyed by the wrath of Zeus, the King of the
Olympians Gods. Until today, historians and explorers are still trying to answer the questions of
what happened to the lost continent of Atlantis and how it disappeared.The answer is simple. Atlantis still exists, but has shrunk into a small puzzle. This is the secret of Atlantis... a puzzle that holds within it a legend of infinite knowledge..."

A single loop odd numbered tile magic has no parity problems, i.e. an odd numbered tile magic,

In terms of appearance, this 9-tile magic myth
puzzle looks like a piece of art.
I am scared to scramble it because the solved states look very attractive, and I can't believe I actually built this thing... or... maybe it wasn't me after all...!
