Axel/Axis Cube

Axel Cube

The Axel or Axis cube is another shape-changing modification of a 3x3x3 Rubik's cube. The triangular shaped pieces make for a spikey scrambled cube. As with all of the shape-changing puzzles, the trick is to get your head around which pieces are equivalent to the edges and corners. With this puzzle, you've also got to deal with the orientation of the centres.
