Congrats to Dan for the 9x9x9x9 solve! You’re crazy!

12 more hyperbolic puzzles done, so I have under 150 to go. I’m going to move on to IRP and Skew puzzles next. There are more hyperbolic puzzles that I know how to solve, but that are very big (500+ pieces up to a maximum of 2464) and I don’t want to lose motivation.

By the way:

(1) {8,3} 6-Color F0:2:0 is a very interesting puzzle. I won’t give any hints, but anyone who hasn’t solved it, I recommend giving it a try.

(2) I think I found a mistake in the high score list, Eduard Baumann has a {8,3} 6-Color E0:1:0 V0:0:1 solve listed, but actually, the link and date and movecount are for {10,3} 6-Color E1:0:0 V1:0:0. Have you solved that {8,3} puzzle? It has 616 pieces so it would probably have a much larger movecount.

{5,4} 12-Color (Non-Orientable) E0:1:0 - 1034 twists

{7,3} 24-Color F0:2:0 - 2297 twists

{7,3} 24-Color F1.2:0:1 - 1395 twists

{8,3} 6-Color F0:2:0 - 58 twists

{8,3} 12-Color E0:1:0 - 4490 twists

{8,3} 12-Color V0:0:1 - 1086 twists

{8,3} 12-Color B V0:0:1 - 1270 twists

{8,3} 24-Color V0:0:1 - 2881 twists

{10,3} 6-Color F0:2:0 - 67 twists

{10,3} 6-Color V0:0:1 - 855 twists

{10,3} 12-Color V0:0:1 - 1967 twists

{10,3} 18-Color V0:0:1 - 3050 twists
