That looks freakin' impossible to solve. If I knew the mech it would be slightly easier. But for now, I am officially stumped.

GREAT PUZZLE! :D

True that does look complex, but I think that the Ghost Cube is more difficult because it is asymmetrical in the solved position. Also, the different colors may help in pairing pieces as well.

It's only a 3x3 mechanism.

I thought of that one first, but there are 3 adjascent edges in one spot in some places.

Greenhill's Cube is one of the most beautiful puzzles out there. The sample that Anthony brought to Eindhoven was perfect. It's light, it turns well, the stickers are all perfect and hand made, and I've never scene a better paint job!

I can only support this and I am glad that I will have one during the next months.

Great description MarkSS!
I have a 3x3x3 dodecahedron from Anthony, so I can tell about the quality.

Anthony Greenhill has made a lot of fantastic puzzles. Around what year did he first make this one?

Geert would know for sure I think.
In my opinion it is from 2008.

As an excuse I might say that I wasn't a member of this forum in 2003.
Thank you Thomas.
The pictures unfortunately have vanished.
Some work to do for Sandy or David!?

Has anyone bandaged one? I would imagine that would be a beast.
