Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Jumble Pebble is yet another jumbling puzzle in the vein of Meteor Madness, Astroid Attack and Big Boulder. However, the geometry of this jumbling puzzle is an enigma. Can you find it at Wikipedia? Or will its geometry remain as illusive as Jumble Rock?

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

This look like it would bandage pretty quickly. Is that due to the underlying (mystery) geometry or by design?

Why should every arbitrary polyhedron have a special name?
It does look nice, though.

The geometry jumbles, which explains its apparent bandaging. Compared to other jumbling geometries, its bandaging is very mild. People who can solve the 3x3x3 should not have too much difficulty in solving this puzzle. It is more work and logistics, but not fundamentally harder.

To distinguish it from any other arbitrary polyhedron. Either, someone else has discovered this geometry before. In that case, I prefer to reuse the reference to that earlier discovery instead of coining a new, redundant name. For lack of such a reference, this geometry is tentatively called "Jumble Pebble".

Oskar, you mentioned in the Jumble Pebble thread that these crazy solids are constructed by putting random polygons together. Could you show us the polygons?

I am happy that you answered my questions in the video:
4 untwistable stars in a tetrahedral configuration.
12 heptagons in sets of three. The sets for themselves have a tetrahedral configuration too.
12 hexagons come in pairs.

What you forgot to mention:
It has 48 corners pieces and 42 edge pieces.
