Does anyone know how I could obtain one of the hot pepper cubes that were given away at the WC05 after-party? I was there, but was evidently busy stuffing my face with food when those cubes were handed out. These are the 3x3x3 cubes from the Japanese snack company Tohato, and they picture a jack-o-lantern hot pepper on each face. Apparently they are fairly challenging since each face uses the same scheme. I've seen videos of Yuki Hayashi and Katsuyuki Konishi solving it, and they take considerably longer than their normal solving times!

Anyway, I've checked on the Tohato site and eBay but I haven't seen any for sale. If someone has an extra, or wants to sell theirs, please let me know. Thanks!

Pictures and video of the hot pepper cube can be seen here:

Evidently the challenge comes from the fact that each face is similar, but only slightly different

Chris,

Is that puzzle shown to size compared with the other puzzles in the photo? If so, it must be huge.

Doug.
