For awhile I couldn't get it into a ball but I figured that at each turn it rotates 90
degrees and goes in a zig-zag pattern aound to make a ball. How can you not get it in a
strait line?(not trying to sound mean or insulting)

lol, i said i CAN get it in a strait line... so every turn is 90 degrees? You wouldn't happen to have any slow videos, would you? I'm not sure if i even do the first 4 turns correctly, LOL. I really want to learn this puzzle, i think it's finally something i can be fast at (i'm kindof good at dexterity...)

If anyone else has any tips, let me know!!! PLEASE!!!



EDIT: HAHAHAHAHA!!! somehow i just managed to get the first step down (like forming 1/8 of the ball) i'm going to figure out how this works!!!!

any help would still be welcomed!!

DOUBLE EDIT: YAAAAAAAAAAY! i finally got it into the ball form!! now all i need to do is get that consistant!!!! Thanks Myke, your tips really came in handy!!

difference between can and can't (it is a 2 char difference).

it took me over 2 mins because it was only like my third or fourth time ever solving it, and i decided to time it. i didn't even know the solution, i could only do it as i saw it. I also consistently messed up on two of the steps :D

check my signature, my times have improved since then :D

I gave up on one handed snake... it's unfreakingbelievable hard to do :(

I thought my 3x3 times were going down because of all the snake practice (7.72 PB!) but i got a 27 average, which is right on the money :D
