Hi,

I have some difficulties with the Mars version. First: I can solve it, I combine and place the edges, then reduce the corners, then solve 3x3x3 with only three turning faces.
But:
Combining the last three edges is allways something random, I don't really "see" the algorithm behind solving the last two or three edges. Often two edges are inverted and I don't know how to avoid that
(and flipping an edge is a headache for me with this cube, at least at the end of edge combining)

Maybe someone can point me in the right direction to the solution.

Two other questions out of interest:
I read that the saturn (or earth?) version is more difficult than the Mars, why?
Is there allready a ranking for the crazy megaminxes?

Michael

I too solved the Crazy 3x3x3 Mars. My method is poor too, but at least it works for me. First I solve the two edges that can't be turned normally. Then I pair up all corners. Then I pair Up all Edges. Then I put all pieces in place. Then i orient last pieces. Quite an annoying but fun solve. I too am curious how to do this puzzle more efficiently.
