If you order them online, they don't come with instructions. If you buy them at the store, most of the time they have instructions. The instructions are really funny though, it is much more time consuming and a method that is useless on other cubes. It is like a specific way to solve the 4x4x4. The centers, edges, solve as a 3x3x3 beginner's method is much more pragmatic not to mention alot easier and faster.
