The idea behind this is to expand on the colorless cube family.

the evil cousin is a cool twist of a classic puzzle. the Bandaged Cube.

Its made by extending a 3x3x3 on three faces, then bandaging the in classic manner with the last regular size corner in the UFR position

the thing is that the bandaged cube pieces cant be oriented, they can only be in a wrong spot, so colors are not needed.

My puzzle is not finished yet, so I'll wait with the pictures for now.

I'm affraid I have made a puzzle I'm not able to solve, so if anyone could help me out, I am not good at making up solutions on my own :D

I should mabe put together a regular Bandaged cube and learn it before creating solution to the Evil Cousin,

so what do you think of this idea?

I'm proud to be the first to say well done! Can't wait for the pics. Sounds hard, although I am not the biggest fan of extensions.

I know what you mean! but on this puzzle the extensions doesnt feel like "dummies". they are in fact the whole puzzle

;)

EDIT:

I like to add that obviously the centers have orientation, but wich not directly shows in their extension

EDIT 2:

also, the puzzle has more solutions, than a regular bandage cube due to the fact that there are several identical pieces.
