I have learned to solve the original 3x3 Rubik’s Cube a long time ago. It’s really not hard at all once you start to understand the algorithms. So I applied my knowledge of the 3x3 Rubik’s Cube on the Megaminx. Obviously you can tell from the picture, I am not successful. What you see there, took me about 4 days to get to. Now for the life of me, I can’t figure out the last fucking layer. And I refuse to look it up on Youtube.
Let’s get into the Mf8 Megaminx V3 itself, enough of my complaints and frustrations. So the Megaminx feels a solid and measures about 3.5 x 3 x 3.5 inches. The construction of this is really nice, you don’t feel like you are going to break it by turning too many pieces. And speaking of turning, it turns like a dream! Everyone who has ever owned a Rubrik’s Cube, knows that you need to lube it up before you begin. Out of the box, the Megaminx did not require lubing. In fact, it spins just as well as my 3x3 Rubik’s Cube that’s been lubed. This is really shocking, how a complex puzzle like this one doesn’t require any lubing.
Now the twelve faces of this particular Megaminx are protruding. This gives it extra grip and helps you identify the colors more quickly. The best thing is, you don’t have to worry about the stickers peeling. Do you know how annoying it is to have peeling stickers on your cubes?! I’ve pried at the protruding colored faces to see if its loosely glued in, but it’s actually really good quality. So funny thing about the twelve faces, there are six distinct colors, then six colors that are just a darker shade of the original six. This took me far too long to realize and made me throw a bitch fit when I solved three layers, only to realize that the colors were completely off.
What are you waiting for folks? If you love ruining your life, and spending countless hours on a handheld puzzle, get one! Do not be discouraged by the twelve faces. If you know how to solve a 3x3, I guarantee you will get up to the last layer like I did ha ha.
