Rubik’s Redux: Think You’re a Puzzlemaster? Try This Mind-Melting Gift

Megaminx Puzzle

What It Is: With the rise of the Fidget Spinner, I was reminded of another fad that swept the nation once upon a time – the Rubik’s Cube. Consisting of six sides, six colours, and nine squares per side, the challenge was to make your cube perfectly matched again. While some people (including Justin Bieber!) are Rubik’s Cube masters, I daresay the Megaminx puzzle might have ’em stumped. We’re talking 12 pentagon-sided faces (with a star pattern on each side). Crazy, colorful, confounding – they’ll love it!

Who It’s For: Your college-bound niece or nephew. Your brainiac spouse. Your kooky coworker.

What It Costs: $34.50

Where It’s At: I spotted it at Montreal-based giftware / lifestyle boutique Mercuri.

Want an extra entry into yesterday’s Truefitt & Hill giveaway? Tell me in the comments below: Are you a Rubik’s master? Know someone that is? Would you be willing to test your brain with this mind-bending puzzle?

    I am no rubik’s master, but a friend of mine loves challenging puzzles.

  2. Donnas says:

    I was able to solve the cube when it first came out, but I’m not a master, it took me a long time. Now I don’t think I’d have the patience to solve this puzzle.
