Just like the more popular six-sided Rubik’s cube, the Megaminx twelve-sided Rubik cube is a puzzle that requires its users to move the colored blocks around until each face contains only pieces of the same color.
The Megaminx twelve-sided Rubik cube is made in the shape of a dodecahedron. For those of us who may not be maestros of geometry, this is simply a solid shape with twelve faces. So think a cube, but with twelve faces. Yeah, I’m sure you get it now.
Each face of the Megaminx has a centerpiece, five corner pieces, and five edge pieces. Each centerpiece is a single color that tells what color that face is supposed to be. The edge pieces have two colors on each side, while the corner pieces have three colors. Although you can only rotate the centerpiece in place, the other pieces can be moved around by rotating the face layer about the centerpiece. The aim of the puzzle is to scramble the pieces and rearrange them. To completely solve the possible, all the pieces in each face would have to be the same colour. In addition to this, you can make different patterns with the pieces.
1. The Megaminx twelve-sided Rubik cube is made entirely out of plastic.
2. Weighing just 180g, the Megaminx is extremely compact, lightweight, and easy to haul around. It could also be a great choice when thinking of game ideas for your next outdoor trip.
3. Each product packing contains the Megaminx and an instructional manual. So not to worry, even if you’re not sure of what to do with the puzzle, the instruction manual is a detailed guide.
4. It is suitable for adults and older children. However, if you’re an adult with smaller children, you should keep this product away from them. That way, you don’t have to deal with the possibility of your child swallowing it.

It’s good quality stuff. Turning is easy and I just love it. I’ve been playing with the regular rubik cube with 6 faces, and I’m tired of that. That one now seems too easy. I love rubik cubes, and I wanted something that would pose more challenge, that is why I was happy to see this one.

Strong, sturdy, durable, with a great quality. I really love this stuff. When I got it out of the box, it was a little bit hard to turn. But after solving it like 3 or 4 times, it loosened up quite ok. I take it along on my way to work, to relieve stress or to pass the time while I’m less busy. Amazing thing.
My friends and I like to try out new challenges. When I saw this twelve sided Rubik Cube, I knew it will be great and entertaining for us to figure out how to fix it. I had to get it, and we have been having much fun with it.
I got into cubing 2 months ago, and I’ve been pretty dedicated with it. I’ve tried 3 x 3 cubes, 4 x 4 and 6 x 6. But this time around I decided to challenge myself with this 12-sided one. I’ve definitely met a true challenge with it as I’ve been working on this for the past few days.
