Hey guys, i finished my first mini-master magic today, and I am going to make more as orders come. They are the same size as a magic, but solve like a master magic. They also have the signature linked to unlinked solution that the master magic's all have.
Buy them here[/url].

The cost is $19.95.

Heh, yes it is. And i'll be selling these as long as people are buying them. I think that this puzzle is acualy pretty fun to play with. Especially the first part, it's hard to master those first few flips without your right hand getting in the way of your left. But i managed to get it down within 50 solves, still i get hung up there when i try to go to fast. lol

That's really cool that you developed your own solution to it. I was somewhat disappointed to discover that the Harry Potter magics had the same solution as the Rings. I'm tempted to pick up a couple of them. Does the $19.95 price also cover shipping, or would that be extra? L8r.

There is a $1 shipping / handling charge added. And yea, creating my own solution took alot of stringing / destringing. I strung 6 prototypes durring the creation of this puzzle.

I'll probably buy one in a month. I just spent a lot of money on puzzles so I think I'll slow down a tad before buying more.

Oh wow... I'm impressed! :-) Whenever I make mine, I cut little squares of paper 1cm in size and write a number/letter for each tile and tape it written side down to the centre square of my blank template. Then I come up with "the solution" for the new puzzle and write a letter/number for each position on the blank side in dark pencil or a different coloured pen so I know which side of the puzzle is which. For anything that's ambiguous I'd also include an arrow pointing to the top of the tile. For example, B is pretty clear as to orientation, but H and I are not. Write them sloppily enough and you wouldn't necessarily know which letter it is, and forget about which way up it is. Same kind of deal with 6 and 9. Once everything's marked, I take the pieces of paper off and then slowly and very carefully peel back the tape so as not to damage the writing underneath, then put the little pieces of paper in an envelope for safe keeping and clearly mark it with the name of the puzzle. Even if the prototypes get lost somehow, I'll still be able to use those sheets to reconstruct the puzzle. L8r.

*cough* regular master magic solution *cough*

I had an orgasm (not actually) when I saw you solve it, now I gotta watch you speedsolve it. I love the Master Magic, so I like this, I'll buy one next time I see you in person, maybe Rutgers Fall?

Well, that's certainly not the way that I solve the Master Magic... instead of looking for solutions on the net, I made my own. It looks vaguely familiar to how Stephan solves it, though... I'm not sure if my own solution is going to be adaptable to your puzzle, so it should be an interesting challenge. L8r.

Surely there must be a shorter solution? Also, have you tried adapting Alexander's new mastermagic solution to it? And yes, that solution is my mastermagic one with Alexander's improvement, except the last six flips on the bottom left are missing.

I noticed that too. I think the last 6 are missing because it's shorter (less tiles), is it not?

I also rememebered your little song. Hahaha.

It took me forever to get the "and some other stuff" part, but still I've subconsiously got it memorized.

Six easy flips on the right hand side,
Two on the left,
Turn the puzzle over,
Beautiful four flips,
Followed by two ugly,
On the bottom side,
And some other stuff,
Six on the left, and here we are,
and don't forget to wear your helmet.

Recently I watched it again and realized I had actually forgotten about the helmet part :D

Then again, I'm also the guy who recently said to himself "what the... since when does my megaminx have a bright green side?!?" (cause I never solve that side directly).

Now that is down right hilarious.

Yes, this is where I got the solution to my puzzle. Also the last 6 flips are missing because they return the puzzle into a rectangular shape, which would be very inconsistant with the rest of the Magic puzzles. I am lanning on making a 5-ringed mini-master for added Master-Magic apeal. Also, could you give me a link to Alexander's solution? I'd be happy to try it out.

Stefan, I'm not sure whether that is more funny, sad, pitiful or amusing. Or just not right...Any way you look at it...its still not healthy...;)

Looks like his tutorial video (linked to later in the thread) has disappeared, you might have to ask him for it.

I ordered this from Scott recently; it arrived yesterday (9/8).
He did an excellent job of packaging the puzzle so that it arrived
in perfect condition. The puzzle itself is very well made; works
quite smoothly. :) Now, if only I got solve it as fast as he does in
his video :wink:
