 Post subject: Bauhinia QuestionPosted: Sat Jun 07, 2014 9:03 pm

I have a Bauhinia Dodecahedron, which I haven't solved. I scrambled it with jumbling and I haven't solved it yet. I have completed all of the faces except for three. On one of these faces, three of the small triangle stickers fell off. These stickers were three different colors, and I don't know which colors were where. My question is, does it matter what order I put them back on? Will it be unsolvable if I put them in the wrong places?

Because there are so many identical pieces, any permutation of the small triangles should be solvable - parity is not a problem. And there are no orbits to worry about. You can put them on in any arrangement without worry.

Stickers falling off of the pieces with only one sticker is no big deal and you won't run into any issues with those pieces.

The Bauhinia Dodecahedron does have a bit of a trick though. It doesn't have any 3-color pieces that would tell you the color scheme up-front so if you get the color scheme wrong you can run into a problem with having a pair of edges swapped.
