I finally finished Eitan's Star! It took me almost a month and a half to figure out this beast of a puzzle. I think it's my favorite puzzle, now. I think that also makes it my girlfriend's least favorite of my puzzles. :P

Just finished the Jupiter Bermuda Megaminx. My first go around with any sort of "Bermuda-ized" puzzle, and I figured it out on my own using pretty much the same intuitive blockbuilding approach that I use on the standard Megaminx. I even figured out a solution to the parity issue!

I used to hate bandaged puzzles of any kind, but this has me taking a new interest in them...

Just finished the Latch Cube, on my own, without watching tutorials, using edges first, corners last method! 8-)

Woohoo! I just solved AI 4x4x4 cube for the first time. Granted, it was lucky (considering 4 previous attempts, where I ended up with two swapped one-colored pieces of fourth 2x2x2 cube), but hey, I´ll take it nontheless. :D

Now to find out a method how to solve it without getting lucky. :D


Edit: Done. It took me one day but it was worth it! I changed solving technique a little bit (from 3 solved and 1 unsolved 2x2x2 cubes to two cubes solved + all edges solved, leading only 6 centers to solve). For centers I use extremely long commutators, but at least they are working :) .
