Tutminx by Very PuzzleProfessor PyraminxOn Monday I received two puzzles in the mail.  One was the Tutminx by Very Puzzle and the other was the Professor Pyraminx by Mefferts.  The Tutminx is kinda crazy.  It comes blank and requires stickering which is kind of fun.  The actually puzzle itself is a bit annoying as you have to keep track of your turns as its easy to jumble the puzzle.  If you jumble the puzzle up too bad the puzzle will cease up and certain face will not move.

Mefferts Mosaic Cube

Well, I got my new Mosaic Cube from Mefferts today.  Honestly the cube, though manufactured professionally, is still highly unstable.  The puzzle exploded several times on me after the first couple turns and isn’t very easy or fun to maneuver.  Which is too bad, as for a puzzle, this is a fun one to solve.

My first attempt, before the cube exploded, was to solve the corners, solve the edges, and then solve the centers.  But when the pieces went flying I learned that the centers aren’t floating pieces but actually joined together to the centers on the adjacent sides.  So after seeing the mechanics I realized it might be easier to solve corners, then centers, and then the edges.  This solution proved to be quite efficient, and I had the puzzle solved before leaving the post office parking lot.
