The other side is identical. You can look at one by downloading the puzzler software at http://www.mud.ca You can't play with it until you register, but you can view the puzzles. fisher 2 is under the square one category with the other bandaged cubes

This was made by Greg Stevens around 1994, and he calls it an "Off-Center Cube". I got one back then, and had a hard time finding an algorithm. I'd say this is about as tough as a Square-1.

Actually, I think it's probably tougher. Square-1 has 340 possible shapes for the puzzle to take on. If I worked out the math correctly, this one has something like 880, assuming the puzzle is oriented around one of the 2x2 pieces. I tried coming up with a solution to this one some time ago and put it on hold when I took some classes last term. I think it's about time I started up again. :) L8r.

I ended up with 2 usable move sequences that both switched and/or flipped few pieces. After restoring the larger corner pieces, I could always solve the rest with these two, rather long, sequences.
