Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

Being geographically challenged I was really dreading solving this cube. Until I realized that you can't make a picture cube out of a mirror cube. It doesn't work...for the simple reason that each piece is unique. That means you can actually ignore the map and just solve it like a regular mirror cube. The only added challenge is the centers...which of course need to be oriented properly. But that isn't very difficult...until you run into parity at the end...and you realize that one of your centers...the Pacific Ocean...isn't oriented properly. But don't feel bad because without a magnifying glass it's almost impossible to discern the orientation of that center. Bottom line: this puzzle should have been built from an assymetric/inequilateral cube. That would have made it more challenging because you would be forced to solve it like a picture cube...and also require you to know a little geography.
I got this cube for Christmas in black plastic. It looks pretty great, but out of the box it was slow and catchy. I solved it a few times and then loosened the tensions on each side by a half turn and added some Lubicle Silk. It turns well, feels sturdy, and corner cuts a bit. It is not much more difficult to solve than a normal 3x3. I gave this four stars instead of five because it does not reverse cut and still catches a bit, and after a few days some of the stickers are starting to peel up at the edges.
The cube turns really good, and the stickers look great. It's a cheep and really great cube if you have the money you should really get it.
