Need help with Rubiks Magic/Link the Rings please

Postby RubiksIdiot » Wed Oct 09, 2013 3:19 pm

Hi..

A friend gave me a Rubik's Magic to solve. I have never used one before and before thinking about it, I dived straight in to see if I could solve it but have managed to screw it up.

Is there a guide I can use to return it to a 2x4 layout? Perhaps then I can learn the required moves to complete it.

Thanks for any help.

Probably not. There are a lot of shapes that the Rubik's Magic can be in that aren't flat. Play around with it for a while until you get it into any two by four state. (The arrangement of the square panels isn't the same for every flat position.) Then, this video on YouTube will most likely help you get it back to the "standard" two by four state.

I hope this helps.

Thanks very much for the reply.

There have been some developments since my first post though.....

...I broke it :)

Now need to find a replacement but when I do, I will use the video in the link you provided to help me master the puzzle :)

Thanks again.
