Rubik's Maze is a string of 6 cubes. They are connected in such a way that two adjacent cubes in the string can be twisted around and placed together at any of their six faces in any orientation.

The aim is to arrange them in a 1x2x3 block so that the black line printed on the outside forms a single closed loop.

Each cube has a little groove that goes through the centre of every face. Each adjacent pair of cubes is connected with a piece of metal wire, and because of those grooves the connection can be moved to any face. There are springs around the wire inside the cubes so that they are pulled tightly together.
