Dayan/MF8 3×3 Crazy Planets


DOUBLE WHAMMY!!

Today, we have a pair of cubes. One looks normal. The other – not so normal!

This is kind of a kit. There has been LOTS written about this. 

Originally, the set of crazy 3×3 planets were released. 


A set of eight cubes that had various crazy faces. Some turned, some didn’t. You’ve seen an example of this with the Crazy 2x3x3 is showed before. 



But then………..the idea came about to mod these cubes together to form a kit. I think this was down to Cha Reeves (rline on the twisty puzzle forums or Twisty Puzzles in YouTube). 

He detailed his idea in this video.

This then evolved into making a kit out of just two puzzles:

A two circle face
and
A four circle face

Here is a link to a discussion on the TP forums. 

Here is a layout of all the possibilities with just these two cubes (as well as the ones pictured above):

I haven’t even scratched the surface of these, as you can see mine didn’t even progress from a six circle face!! Mercury, I think….

I think I used Pete’s video on stickering the right way. 

Here is mine scrambled. If you like variation, assembling and value for money, there is no way you shouldn’t have these. 

Four more days to go!
