Golden Cube 2 Extreme
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A sequel to Tony Fisher's classic puzzle, made by the inventor himself. It has some small differences to the original.

15 years since after he created the original Tony Fisher revisited the concept of the Golden Cube and bult another version with the same techniques: Sculpting by hand and casting in polyurethane resin.

As with the first, it is solved by shape alone since all the parts are unique and there is only one colour.
The solved puzzle is the equivalent to a partly turned Skewb. Like the first this adds to the confusion when trying to solve it but on this new version the partial turn is different, less obvious and less natural.
The original Golden Cube had a triangular piece with no obvious orientation. This could lead to parity problems though unfortunately it was not included in Meffert's factory version. This new cube has two such pieces. Since internally they are not the same type of piece, two different parity issues can occur.
The original Golden Cube had 14 pieces just like the skewb it was made from. Golden Cube 2 Extreme? however has just 13 pieces. This is because two are bandaged together. This restricts the number of moves possible at any one time and adds further difficulty to the puzzle. It's like gluing two pieces of a Skewb together and then trying to solve it.
Some of the parts are quite similar. This means it is harder to decide what should go where.

Edge length: 76 mm
Weight: 320 grams

Beyond this basic version Tony also made three subversions:
1. Same as above but without bandaging. (image 2)
2. Same as above but with white body and black stickers. (image 3)
3. Combination of 1 and 2 (without image)
