Megaminx Notations Guide

Want to learn the Megaminx Notation?

The WCA Megaminx notation is the official notation set out by the World Cubing Association and is the correct notation for all official WCA scrambles.

In the images below the part of the puzzle that is greyed out is the part of the puzzle which does not move. The pieces in colour are the pieces that will move when performing the D/R/U moves.

When learning the Megaminx notation you will see ++ and -- appear quite a lot. This indicates the direction that layer must be rotated. 

+ +     Clockwise
- -       Anti-Clockwise
