Hi,

You will probably remember the GloBall family of puzzles, that were first sold 2+ years ago:

The Flower

and the Logic Star

were funcionally equivalent to a Kilominx (corners only Megaminx)

While the Flower does resemble a Kilominx, the Logic Star shape is more complex (Great Stellated Dodecahedron), lending itself to different sticker patterns.

The default sticker pattern is quite simple:

So I decided to apply to the Logic Star an "Alexander Star style" sticker pattern, with six different colors (repeated twice):

(here you can see the yellow face solved, side by side with an Alexander Star - edges only Megaminx)


Blue face solved:

Red face solved:

Comparison with standard pattern:

This makes for quite a beautiful puzzle.

Solving the Alexander Logic Star is easy algorithm-wise (after all, it's just a kilominx), but very confusing, even more that the Alexander Star, since the solved state is not easy to recognize.

Hope you like it.
