Drives You Crazy

Purchased from Mefferts 2007.
(six 1.5 inch foam cubes)

Each of the six cubes has a different one of the colors red, blue, light blue, green, yellow, and orange on each side. This puzzle is similar to Iribako, but with a different color pattern. Like the four block Instant Insanity puzzle, the object is to arrange the cubes in a line so that each side has no duplicate colors. Here is a solution and its corresponding graph (constructed the same way as for Instant Insanity):




cycle 1: Y - 2 - G - 1 - O - 4 - LB - 6 - R - 3 - B - 5 - Y
cycle 2: Y - 3 - O - 6 - G - 5 - LB - 1 - B - 2 - R - 4 - Y
