All of our twisty puzzles & Rubik's Cubes are brand new. Due to the nature of these puzzles they may become loose after the first hour or so of playing/twisting. Don't be alarmed, most puzzles allow you to 'Re-Adjust' them and set them up exactly as you want them. Simply read our "How to adjust your cube" blog for instructions on how to do this.
Please Note: Not all puzzles allow adjusting.
The GAN Megaminx is a great cube! Smaller than I initially expected and a lot lighter than the other Megaminx’s that are out there. This is not a bad thing by any means as the cube fits very well in my hands and is excellent to handle.
I was pleasantly surprised with how similar the solving method is to a regular 3x3x3 cube. But that by no means makes it an easy puzzle. The thought I put into solving this was incredible! It’s wonderful to be presented with a challenge again. After staring at the cube in its solved form for near on an hour, I decided to brave it and begin scrambling the dodecahedron (not knowing if I would ever see this solved ever again). 45 minutes it took for my first solve! But oh lord what a 45 minutes it was. I had difficulty trying to get my head to transpose the algorithms I already knew; it took a while to stop seeing the whole dodecahedron and start focusing on the finer details. That was what was holding me back, the beauty of a scrambled Megaminx. I would stop and just admire every piece I managed to get into the correct slot.
The mechanics of the puzzle struck me the most, it was able to corner cut like me taking a steep left turn while driving, screwing my tyres. The Megaminx boasts a total of 120 magnetic capsules which noticeably helps reduce the change of overshooting with your turns. Interestingly, upon some research of GAN cubes, there honeycomb pattern on the interior surfaces of the cube have a purpose. Rather than just making the cube look cool when you take it apart, it helps store lube so that it stays lubricated for longer periods of time.
If anyone is still on the edge about whether this cube is for them, I would suggest they get it! It is worth the money for the hours of solving, brainteasing fun you will undoubtably get from the GAN Megaminx.
