Solving of MT hyp G4GX {4,10} cb v001 —– || 09/02/2014 || 10

Remark : small

Solving of MT ell proj h-octa v 1.5:0:0 —– || 10/02/2014 || 14

Remark :

Small but very interesting puzzle:

You have to realize that there are only belt moves in principle. So faces stay at home.

You need maximum 2 moves to get edges at home. Than you have to apply a commutator very carefully to get the vertices home (4 twists). I was left with four wrong orientations. To get rid of these I had to apply the commutator twice. This gives 14 twists.

To get less twists you must repeat the exercice until you are left with no orientations after 6 twists (by chance).

Interesting

The puzzle has 6 vertices which show exactly all 4!=24 4-color permutations neclecting cycling (24/4=6).
