I need help, does this puzzle solve in the same way as the Rubik's rings or the Hungarian rings? And please explain what happens when you push the buttons. And finally, has anyone written a solution for it yet? The last puzzle I bought took me ages to figure out, and my friends all expect a solution within a few minutes. (obviously not puzzlers) Without a solution handy, they just mess up what I've done, and walk away. Real frustration.

First of all, there should have been a solution to the puzzle in the packaging. Anyway I'm guessing you have not pressed the buttons yet. This makes solving it very easy. Just choose a side that you want solved first. Get all seven marbles of that color onto that side. If one is on the opposite side, spin that side until it is on one of the other 2 sides and turn one of those two until it is on the side you want. Once you get all seven, choose another side. Keep doing this until solved. Pressing the buttons will lock the two opposite sides together and they move as one piece. Once pressed, they can't be unpressed, EVER! Eventually a solution guide will pop up for that. Enjoy!
