Hi all,

I've been looking around lately for the next puzzle to get and am wondering where I can find a circle cube (not planets).

Thanks,
AW

You can either buy one for a high price (or at least, I assume it is, as all of the hand mods from HKNowstore are expensive and this says "Please Ask" under price) from HKNowstore, or buy 2 crazy planets cubes and do the easy mod to get 2 cubes- a Circle cube (All faces are 0), and a Crazy cube (All faces are 1).

Yes,
You can buy a mercury and a Jupiter crazy cube.
After, it is very easy to make a circle cube.

That was my intention too, because I thought that all of these planets were nothing but marketing.
But, after solving circle cube, you discover that this is not quite challenging and that this is actually not very interesting compared to the others planets. All (almost all) brings a different challenge, some are quite easy and others are really hard. And all of these planets brings you a lot of fun !!

You could find a lot on this forum about them.

Thanks for the answers. I agree with alacoume, the planets are probably more interesting but for collection purposes, I can't really afford the whole set. After doing more research, I think I'm just going to get the crazy 4x4 2- I could just use it as a 3x3 first.

But once you have, say, mercury and jupiter, you automatically have the whole set if you want. Because you then have 6 of each kind of center. So you can then make all the others, saturn, mars, the whole lot (plus you get your circle cube). It's a pretty fantastic investment for buying 2 cubes.

That's true. This is what I have done and you would have days of fun ! Changing a cube into another one is moreover very easy.

And you could find a lot o tutorial on you tube on these cubes - Those of rlines are quite amazing (like Burgo's ones also) ! rline does a very good job on tutorials!

Thanks for your imput, everyone, but I ended up going with a crazy 4x4. That puzzle pleases me.
