One sample of a magic-myth-puzzle which is a RubiksMagic with an odd number of tiles. This one has 5 tiles.
This is the outcome of Pantazis Houlis' interest in Rubiks Magic and its variants. He came up with the idea of "magic myths" which basically are puzzles like Rubiks-Magic-type with one main difference: The puzzle consists of a single loop of an odd number of tiles.
In his first announcement Pantazis mentioned three variants of magic myths:
5-tile: The Magic Thrones of the Gods
7-tile: The Magic Wrath of the Cyclops
9-tile: The Magic Secret of Atlantis
This is the variant with 5 tiles. It has two different solutions.
In the first solution the puzzle has to be folded into the shape of a throne (see 2nd image) and the line has to be continous on all tiles and sides.
In the second solution the puzzle has to be folded into the shape of an open cube.
