It gives only small number of "easy puzzles": 3,4,6 colors, 3 layers; 3 colors, 5 layers. But 6 colors, 3 layers is a classic Rubik’s cube 3^3, so it’s not so easy.

I believe many people have solved the easier ones and nobody knows who’s the first one to solve each puzzle (probably Roice is always the first one). What should we do about them? Should we only put the hard puzzles in this list?
