Hello! I have a maze cube that got totally messed up. My little bro scrambled it. I have no clue on how to solve it. I just want it completed. I have a video uploaded about it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y0ASfZyvqs
If you know how to solve this, it would be great... :scrambled:

I had a similar experience with this cube. I bought this snake cube from a local puzzle store, in a scrambled state. The main difficulty was that, I didn't know the solved pattern. So I did some online research. After looking at several images, I found the solved pattern. I made the following drawing,

I printed it, and made a paper cube. Everything after that was easy.

I have one too (DIY Cube stickered with a cubesmith set)
Haven't dared to scramble it yet though, because I haven't decided yet which approach to take. I could either solve it by using an example (such as looking at a 3D java applet version of the cube) or just by trial&error and back tracking.

Isnt a mazecube suppose to be a neverending loop? I got mine from C4Y, a single colored one. Solved, it has one long loop that goes through all cubes on the cube.

The link up top showing what cube you got isnt valid anymore, so excuse me if you have a different cube than me :)

This one is different, called snake cube. The lines are painted as a snake, which has ends. The weird thing is that both ends are heads on my cube.
