The Megaminx is manufactured with a high quality black ABS plastic core. This cube has been improved and boasts larger cut-outs for better corner-cutting capabilities.
The Megaminx is made in the shape of a dodecahedron, and has 12 face center pieces, 20 corner pieces, and 30 edge pieces. The face centers each have a single color, which identifies the color of that face in the solved state.
The edge pieces have two colors, and the corner pieces have three colors.
Each face contains a center piece, 5 corner pieces and 5 edge pieces.
The corner and edge pieces are shared with adjacent faces. The face centers can only rotate in place, but the other pieces can be permuted by twisting the face layer around the face center.
The purpose of the puzzle is to scramble the colors, and then restore it to its original state of having one color per face.
This puzzle was designed and manufactured by Uwe Meffert, who was born in Wernigerode, Germany, and has designed many other puzzles.
