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
but with a different color pattern.
Like the four block
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
W. Baeck has written a program to find six distict solutions,
one being the solution shown above,
and some employing two smaller cycles to form a solution half
