Probably better for beginners who would have gotten more mileage out of it so possibly docking a star was unfair.
I had two main hopes of this puzzle - one, that it would be a fun little puzzle with an interesting twist on other cubes, and two, that the power of its six rotating pentacles could assist me in my dark satanic rituals to summon the Dark Lord himself through cubing. The second hope has been largely dashed so far, but the first holds up.
I was worried initially that the continual lining up of the rotating centers for every move might get a bit tedious, but it's generally not been too much of an issue. It helps that the puzzle is generally forgiving if one or two of the centers is a few degrees off, or sometimes by quite a bit if you shoogle it back and forth a bit. Not to give too much away, but if you can solve a 2x2 then you can probably work this one out by yourself, and I found figuring it out pretty rewarding. And if you do manage to summon the Devil with it, please let me know what your solve was.
Superb quality cube, very unique puzzle which turns excellently. And great service from Kewbz!
Very fun to solve if you can solve a 2x2 and 5x5
