Twistypedia is a collection of terminology developed by twisty puzzle designers and enthusiasts of this forum. It was initiated by Oskar van Deventer as a private site to collect and provide exact definitions of special, twisty puzzle-related terms. On his proposal, this content was handed over to TwistyPuzzles in August 2021. A big Thank You to Oskar for this library, and to Frank Tiex for integrating it into TwistyPuzzles.com.
