Greetings.

Please forgive me if this "new Puzzle"-Topic is posted in the wrong forum...

I modified two cubes in a way that they have two solutions:
1. The normal "every side a single color"-scheme.
2. An "every extensions on a single side"-scheme, which leads to my favorite color scheme.
The special thing with the second solution ... can be seen in the third picture.

Any comments?

it took me a second to realize what the third picture was, but that's a really neat idea.

That's a cool idea. It's a very interesting way to play with extensions.

However, it seems that they have more than one solution for the #2 solution, because only the top layer is determined. It's more of a puzzle with two separate goals than a puzzle with two solved states.

Thats true.
Now we could determine how many different Permutations with "solved goal" are there, which lead to an interesting scheme.
Are there any?

And the next step could be to apply the exensions not only to one dimension but to three dimension and build 8 Cubes with would be put together to an 7x7x7.
Anyone who wants to do this? I don't want at least for one year!
