I wonder why they pillowed it. I'd much rather have a cubic Fluffy Cube.

Beautiful puzzle, besides the Feliks Pillow there are not a lot of 3x3x3 variations in which the cubies themselves are shaped differently as opposed to the cube as a whole, by which the boundaries of the other cubies are not restricted (cubies can go into other cubies and overlap with no issue)

Sorry if I'm being stupid or ignorant, but what is the difference between this puzzle and a normal 3x3? I don't get the idea. :?

Holy long lost thread Batman!

It is a standard 3x3x3 mechanism and solve, but the pieces are a bit more interesting.

I've always liked this puzzle simply because of how impossible it looks to turn if you don't understand the cuts.
