I have twisty puzzles I've solved list, which goes as follows.

3x3x3
2x2x2
4x4x4
dino cube
helicopter cube (without jumbling)
1x3x3
1x2x2
1x1x2
1x1x3

I would like to add Pyraminx to the list.
So, does anyone have a good solve guide, or tutorial to help me?

I can now add a 3x3x2 to the list ;o along with the 2x2x3

Hi Friend,
It's a pretty simple puzzle. If you have learned to solve all of those other puzzles, why not use what you know to figure out a solution yourself? That way you will have the satisfaction of the accomplishment. It's a great opportunity for you. If you get stuck on anything people will help :) .
Cheers,
Burgo.

I learned to solve the pyraminx by myself as a child. There are really two methods: corners first and edges first. I wish you luck finding your own solution as I did. One reason why the Pyraminx is so rewarding is it's actually possible for an "average joe" (or "jane") to discover a solution without resorting to tutorials.

Yeah, if you want to solve it once, it can be figured out easily. But being able to solve it from any scenario is a bit harder (I've still got no idea how to flip two edges).

I use to just use tutorials for everything, but I have been coming back to simpler puzzles like these and trying to solve them on my own. The pyraminx is a pretty easy puzzle to figure out as its turns only have an overlap of one, resulting in an instant 3 cycle.

Highlight below for an outline on how I figured it out.
First turn the corners to match eachother. Then use the 3 cycle (L, R', L', R) to put all the pieces in their correct spots. If you are more advance you can try and place their orientation before 3 cycling. Lastly flip orientation of incorrect pieces. (last two) by turning one down, moving it on the bottom face to the left, then putting it back up in its correct orientation. Then turn the bottom face over to the other incorrect piece and do the opposite moves to undo that short sequence that scrambled the pyraminx, while fixing the orientation.

Good luck.

Ben

Seriously, do this one your self. Using only algs I have invented I average about 5 seconds. It feels great to solve a puzzle on your own.

Like what everyone else said, you can pretty much learn this by your self, the only real issue i had was 3 edge cycling and flipping 2 edges.

Since then I figured it out on my own, but real helpful comunity on this . . .
I didn't ask if I shoud solve it myself, I asked for hep on solving it.

Actually it is a helpful community but you asked a question that somewhat offended our solving sensibilities. There is an expectation here that you at least try before asking.

If you want to discuss aspects of the solve such as flipping two edges we'd be happy to engage.

I thought you were asking for advice on solving it yourself, so I gave you an outline. I figure you can find a tutorial on your own...
