The Holey Megaminx is a version without face centres, inspired by the Void Cube the same techniques on the megaminx to solve everything but the final layer. The Megaminx is intrinsically similar to the Rubik’s cube but features a dodecahedron shaped face. It’s solution requires much of the same. This course will use video demonstrations and downloadable instructions to provide students with an easy to learn step-by-step approach to solving the.

If you have already solved the cube if you haven’t, why are you starting with the megaminx?
The experience of solving most parts of the megaminx is surprisingly similar to that of solving the cube. This page describes a few changes to the beginner’s layer-by-layer method for the cube. Start as you would for a cube.
Place all of the edges on one of the layers and then slot in the corners to complete the face. Use the F2L middle layer and corners algorithms that you use for this part of the now.
How to Solve a Megaminx
Work your way downwards and solve everything but the bottom layer. You shouldn’t need to deviate from basic cube strategy and, although you may get a bit confused from time-to-time, you will get there in the end.
The image shows what you need to solve during this phase.
Turn the puzzle over so that you have the unsolved layer on top now. On the cube, you would make a cross by orienting the edges.
We can use the same approach and algorithm on the megaminx – the pattern is different though. If you can’t see this pattern, do the algorithm a couple of times from different angles and eventually, you will. In the image, the pink face is our ‘front’ face. To position the edges, rotate the puzzle so that there are correctly positioned edges on the two faces to the left of your front face.

Then use the following algorithm to position the edges correctly, If, after doing the algorithm once, the edges still need positioning, rotate the puzzle to place solved edges on the left and do it again. It shouldn’t take more than two goes of this to megamiinx everything sorted. The 3-cycle described in the beginner’s cube method doesn’t do anything on the megaminx. There is an alternative to use on the bottom corners.
In the image, the dark grey corners are the ones we megamiinx to cycle. We aren’t looking to orient them at this stage, just get them into position.
The other two corners are not affected by the algorithm. This stage is the same as the last stage of the beginner’s layer-by-layer megamjnx for the cube.
Like the cube, you turn the U layer to bring each corner to the same spot before twisting it into position. If it took a long time to get to this stage, you may wish to take a little extra care.
Remember though, messing up just before the end is how you remember the early parts of a solution. Step 1 – First ‘Two’ Layers Start as you would for a cube. Step 2 – Orient Bottom Edges Turn the puzzle over so that you have the unsolved layer on top hoow.
