First, what is an Alexander star? My hardest puzzle was a Megaminx.

Alexander Star is a really complicated dodecahedron puzzle. It's like a... I dunno, 5D star?

A megaminx is a dodecahedron, too! are they the same?

Not at all. There's many dodecahedron puzzles.

alexanders star



megaminx





so no, there not the same


for me the hardest one i ever solved was a 5x5x5 cube, but that was
back then when i had never seen one before and had to make up my own
solution. but now its a whole lot easier

square-1 for me. it changes shape and can get permutation parity.  took me days to first solve it without help


and isnt the alexanders star and edges-only megaminx, making it easier? ive never tried an alexanders star though, so i could be missing something

yes technically an alexander's star is the equivelant of solving a six-colored megaminx

yes, an alexander's star is a 6 colored edges only megaminx, but i just found the concept to be challenging for me, lol,

Unfortunately, I only have up to a 4x4, which I can solve, but I hope to get a 5x5, alexander's star, 6x6,7x7, and megaminx.
