Do you mean how do you create the shape, or are you asking about the colour pattern to create the puzzle as shown in the database? The shape itself is easy enough... in fact, just right now I found a 4th way to do it, which is kind of a mirror of the "official" way. If you're asking about the "official colour scheme", then sorry, but I'm not quite ready to give that out yet. L8r.

You keep saying 'massage' instead of 'message'.

If you have a normal 8-tile cube and can do the "create the cube" move, then doing this for a 12-tile magic is similar, but you must do this move for each opposite side at the same time. :)

PS I want a "massage" too!!! :P

Wow, shades of Engrish! Oh no! Someone set us up the bomb! Move "Zig!" :lol: BTW, the massage felt great! :wink: Seriously, though... the shape is pretty easy to make if you can solve the standard Rubik's Magic and if you can create the cube shape on it. Here's a basic solution which won't spoil the "official" solution for people who have my original puzzle. If you want to figure out the double cube shape on your own, please, DON'T READ ANY FURTHER as there WILL be spoilers from here on in. Of course, there's still at least 3 other ways to do this which aren't covered in this message... :wink:

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD

On one end, do the last 6 moves of the Rubik's magic. Then on the other end of the puzzle, use exactly the same move sequence, then fold the 2 flaps in towards the centre on the OPPOSITE side of the puzzle, so that the flaps are hinged on the outer edge of the puzzle, instead of being attached to the main puzzle in the middle of the flap. For lefties, when the puzzle is flipped over, you'll want the flaps on the top right and bottom left, and for righties, they should be on the top left and bottom right. From here, with a bit of practice, it should be easy to tease out the cube shape. Slightly lift the top flap and then push down the tile directly below the inner tile

XX
RL <-- this one
XX
XX

with your thumb, which should then start to swing out to the side, and the tile jut above it should start to swing in to become the back. At the same time, push up the innermost tile with your ring finger on the same hand to become the top of the other cube. You should now be able to slide the 2 sides of the puzzle to become a box kite shape, at which point you can simply collapse the 2 boxes against each other (one of two ways) to create a double cube. Congratulations! :D L8r.

Thank you !!!

I'm sorry but I can't understand this part of your message :
"do the last 6 moves of the Rubik's magic."

Which is that last 6 moves ???

The last 6 moves = turning it from a 2x4 puzzle to a 3x3 with a missing corner. Hope that helps.

Yeah, that's one reason they don't get scrambled in competitions.
