The Megaminx, is a dodecahedron-shaped twisty puzzle, it has 12 center pieces (around which the faces can turn), 20 corner pieces and 30 edge pieces. It was invented in 1982 by a few people independently but was first created by Dr. Cristoph Bandelow and soon after by the famous Uwe Mèffert who gave it it's current name. Other names for this puzzle are The Magic Dodecahedron and The Hungarian Supernova.
There are many similarities between the Megaminx (3x3x3) and the original Rubik's Cube. Both are face-turning puzzles that have fixed centers and a single edge piece between any two adjacent corners. It is quite surprizing at first glace, but the similarity between the puzzles also comes in to play when solving the Megaminx - the solution is almost identical to the Rubik's Cube's solution and many of the Rubik's Cube solving algorithms can be used on the Megaminx.
The difference between the two however is very obvious, while the Rubik's Cube is a cube (with 6 sqare faces) the Megaminx is a dodecahedron (with 12 pentagon faces). This creates a lot more moving parts - 50 in the Megaminx compared to 20 in the Rubik's Cube, therefore the number of possible combinations is also much greater - 1.01x1068 (around 101 unvigintillion) which is a number most of us had never heard of before.
The Megaminx series is one of the most famous series in the cubing world. The puzzle has many variations and modifications, along with higher-order versions such as the Gigaminx (5x5x5) and the Teraminx (7x7x7).
The Megaminx is an official WCA puzzle and the official record for fastest solve is 24.92 seconds set by Leandro Martín López (Argentina) at Di Tella Open 2023.
ElijahOut of all of them this and the mirror cube are the hardest also I have been using this website for so long and I love it this is the best Rubik’s cube website EVER😄
KawinI solved it under 20 minutes
The_Cuberso easy. friend messed it up and i solved it in 3 min!
abelOkay, this is so hard I cannot even solve 2 sides! ( Impossible for me )
AlpI solve it under 1 hour (its so easy)
megaminx is best cubenext day this cube arrived to me and i SOLVE IT IN UNDER 1 HOUR
AdenThis is feeling like a 5x5 cube
Cubiks_Ruberthis is hard but i practice 4 days a week. THE HARDEST PUZZLE IN THIS WEBSITE
Decent CuberThe megaminx is just a 3x3, but with extra steps.
James RobertsI can’t solve it. LOL.😂😂😂
Arsh From ArmeniaSite's so useful. Having fun! It gives an opportunity to solve, get patterns on or just scramble the cubes you own & don't own. For example: I wanted to order a Megaminx but I had a fear: maybe I can't solve it, my money will just go... but when I found the app I started to try to solve it. First tries were too hard... but at last I solved it and now I can order a Megaminx. I solved 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, Pyraminx, Skewb (the puzzles I own) and then solved 6x6 and 7x7, Megaminx and Master Pyraminx. Thx!
KevinThis simulator is awesome!
Im_aN00bThats Impossible Bruhhhhhh
JackI can solve it like a 3x3x3
SeekFromDoorsthis is a pretty fun game I managed to scramble and solve the Megaminx again
Bruh goatThe best website ever
