A clever 2x2x2 mod that can solve into a cube or the shape of a house.
This puzzle can be viewed as a Fisher 2x2x2. "Fisher" means in this case that the puzzle is twisted by 45° within the solid. This analogy is not perfectly right because of the puzzle's absent stickering.
Without stickers and only two sets of distinguishable pieces this puzzle has just 9717 permutations. It behaves more like a creativity game than a puzzle. The pieces even resemble those of a Rubik's Snake.
It was produced and sold in the former GDR.
David Singmaster mentioned it in Cubic Circular #7&8 from 1985.
If you're looking to buy, eBay is the one place you can find almost anything... if you're willing to wait for it, then pay the price!
