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.

This puzzle is BRUTAL. Definitely pushed my own solving abilities to their limits. It's tough enough to figure out how to manipulate the pieces, and once you've wrapped your head around that part there is just so much puzzle to be solved, so throw on some podcasts or audio books because you're going to be at this thing for a while.
Turn quality is serviceable, but it could be better. It catches a lot — I didn't have any problems with popping but when you're trying to remember how to undo your extensive setup moves, having to stop to fight the puzzle adds the wrong kind of difficulty.
I'm glad I got this puzzle, it was satisfying to finally get this thing solved, but TBH I don't see myself getting a whole lot of replay out of it because it's just a bit much.
If you're reading wondering if you could take this puzzle on... this is considerably more challenging than a Megaminx or Gigaminx. I'd say a similar challenge level to a Rua, but with many more pieces to deal with.
I took a star off because the corner pieces often pop, as do the small triangle pieces occasionally. Fortunately they're easy enough to pop back in, but that can slow you down if you're in the middle of a very long sequence. And you may be executing some very long sequences because this puzzle is extremely difficult -- easily the most difficult puzzle I own and probably too difficult for the casual cuber. But I'm glad I resisted the temptation to give up and look online for a solution... it was incredibly satisfying crossing the finish line to the solved state. If you're looking for a challenge, you will definitely not be disappointed by this puzzle.
