Recently in another thread I wrote-


Quote:
I also have a Puckube S.Rubiks.

P.S. I have no immediate plans to auction one.



I have now decided to start a ten day auction from Wednesday 8th August at 10.00pm BST.

The color scheme is quite unorthodox... but a great mod anyways!

I'd hardly say that red opposite orange, blue opposite green and white opposite yellow was unorthodox.

You've got the normal opposites, but it still isn't the standard scheme. Your color scheme doesn't have the Blue-Orange-Yellow corner clockwise. I believe yours is counter clockwise

I realise that Scott and if I'd made a super slick 3x3x3 speed cube I would colour it that way. I have seen many different colour schemes over the years and this one is very common. To me unorthodox would mean something more unusual, like the colouring on a 6x6x6 for example.

Ya, I don't really see what the big deal about the color scheme is. Sometimes, I actually prefer a nice change from the normal 3x3x3 scheme. It adds a different twist to a puzzle, and although it has no real effect, can actually make it more confusing.

Uh, yeah... My confusion comes from trying to figure out how it's supposed to turn, when none of the layers match up with each other? I'm guessing that it's a mod of the overlapping cube. Could never figure out that one, either...

Think of it as a cube-shaped puck.

Check out the puck puzzles in the puzzle database.

You could also regard it as an inside-out Square-2, like this one from dlitwin's avatar:Image

The middle layer has to be turned a little first to line everything up before other moves can be made. It's similar to my Golden Cube (with it's unorthodox colour scheme) where there is only one first and last move.
