Today I recieved my octocube and before scrambling it I can say that will be one of my favorites! it tuns good, sometimes a bit cachy but the feel of the puzzle is very good! I will try not to force it cause I don't want it to pop, I have only turned some faces and I already love it!

I have scrambled and solved it once and have lubricated it later.
Maybe, I should have done it the other way around. It has improved quite a bit.
It didn't pop (I got once a pop very early after unboxing it- see my warning above - and I was careful later. My pop wasn't as bad as Marty's.)

In my opinion it is much harder to solve than the Wheel of Wisdom.
Or should I say it is more confusing than hard?
Anyway, I needed some time to get the hang of it and I corrupted solved parts quite often again before that.
I do not think, that we will ever see a "How to solve ..." topic for it.
For now, I would not be able to say more than "solve it similar to the WoW" :wink:

Already, it catches a little bit less than out of the box and I'm looking forward to lubricating it after a little bit more of breaking in.


Mine arrived yesterday. I lubricated it. But sometimes turning is only possible in one direction. I am afraid that all pieces explode.
