Hello guys!

So here is my newest creation :)
The barrel puzzle is one of my favorite puzzle, I really like it, but it's really easy, when I've got it, after two tries I solved, and now I can solve it in less than 50 sec :)

My brother (Dragan) came out with this idea some time ago, so I wanted to try this and by the way, to make it looks a lot better and make a bigger challenge.

I can tell you that there is a challenge now, I have not yet solved it! Good thing :P
There are parity problem at the end, like for the 3x3x3, so you need to do a kind of algorithm (that I still hadn't found).
But I can tell you that the puzzle looks a lot greater than before, it's a lot more fun, and it's more difficult, so it's a really nice puzzle.

Here are the pictures!

I will also add a video soon, so you will see it better and on other angles :)

P.s.: it looks better in real, you'll see in the video.


,Nikola :)

You are evil :P I already hate my Babylon Tower, and you are just making these more difficult!

Great job and cool idea though!

This is a great example of simple being excellent. I would absolutely make one of these.

This is essentially just a shorter babylon tower which forces column position, no? I ask only because you said it was harder to solve. Is it harder than a whip-it? Yes. Is it harder than a babylon tower? Not really.

Yes it's a lot harder then a Whip-It
What does it changes that it's easier than a Babylon Tower?
Did I talked about it?

Sorry if my comment came off the wrong way. I was just trying to clarify for myself. Great puzzle!
