Square 1 Cube

My newest geeky puzzle: the Square one.

What it looks like unsolved:

And solved:


It's a lot trickier than the rubix cube, and i'm only just figuring it out. I currently have it cube-shaped but not solved. I think I like the constant shape of the Rubix cube better.
This is the best site I've found so far.

I well remember when the Rubix cube became popular...it was followed by a long string of games.

I'm too young to have been around. I can do a 3x3x3 and a 5x5x5 pretty well, but this is my first thatt isn't necessarily a cube. I solved it twice today with the instructions.

Square 1 broke my brain!
The Pyraminx is good fun, too :)

The pyraminx looks pretty cool. It looks to be somewhat easier than the 3x3x3 cube (at least in terms of ideal # of moves and solve times), and I like that it always stays in the same shape. I'll have to try it sometime.
