Hi,
in the past I hinted to this one or two times.

These are ALL bandaged Skewbs which are worth making. All others are duplicates of some sorts or trivial.
And they will be the first puzzle I will resticker.

Greetings.

Arch! Too many Skewbs!!!

Seriously though, good work. I love your obsession to complete series. :)

Very nice. Now, do you have a favorite? Which one is the most interesting / challenging? How are bandaged Skewbs to solve, compared to e.g. Meffert's bandaged cube?

Hi Andreas,

Yes, I'd like to know, say, which 4 are a good representation of the solve, offer diversity from each other, and give a range from easier to harder.

Cheers,
Burgo.

PS Nice work :D .

Compared with Mefferts Bandaged Cube solving is quite different since Mefferts Bandaged Cube has 7 blocks which still can be moved relatively free. On a bandaged Skewb many pieces are connected two one of the two cores.

The four variants I like most?
See the image below. These four are highly symmetric or they are restricted (the behave non-bandaged although they are).

Before I could got for that series I had to know all truly different variants for the Master Skewb => I had to filter them out of 2^96 variants.
I conclude: not yet!
