Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A midturn 3x3x3 still in hexahedral shape but with such an awkwardly oriented axis system that every piece is uniquely shape and therefore sticker can be unicolored.
The principle behind this puzzle was first used by Tony Fisher or his Golden Cube. The Golden Cube is a shape modified Skewb.
The Ghost cube is a shape modified 3x3x3. Like the Golden Cube the axis system is reoriented within the hexahedral shape that every piece has an unique shape. Furthermore the 3x3x3 is in midturn when pressed into this shape which is also the case in the Golden Cube.
Because of their unique shapes the pieces would not need stickers at all. They are applied here just for aesthetic reasons.
The first sample was assembled by Geert Hellings shortly before DutchCubeDay 2008.
In 2014 Mefferts published a mass produced version. See images 4-8. Before that it was available only as custom made puzzle.
In March 2014 four metalised version (Gold, Silver, Purple and Royal Blue; images 9-13) followed for 36 USD each. Also, a special "Jade Green" very limited edition was available only for members of the Jade Club for 39 USD.
