Fudgedron

Fudgedron is a fudged variety of the Dayan Gem III which has been requested by Andreas Nortmann. This puzzle cube features a face-turning truncated octahedron. While the hexagonal faces of the Dayan Gem IV permit only 120-degrees turns, Fudgehedron’s hexagonal faces can be turned in steps of 60 degrees. If you look at the puzzle, you’ll see that it has squares and it has hexagons. When the solver moves the hexagon with one turn by 60 degrees, the pieces can be seen floating all around. The pieces are relatively lose and that is because of the edging design. As the solver tries to turn one of the squares, there can be a bit of lock ups sometimes. After turning one square, the solver can make another turn for the hexagon.

Playing with such fantastic puzzle cube can definitely help improve hand-eye coordination and build muscle memory. The neurons get better connected thus resulting to general health of the body and can even help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. It even improve focus, patience and perseverance.  The brain stimulating activities like playing puzzles can enhance and often ward off dementias that can happen in the future. You can prevent having memory loss and trouble in clear thinking by simply playing puzzle cubes. The logical left brain is investigative, objective, and sequential and is enthused by problem solving activities. The creative right brain is characterized with randomness, intuitiveness and subjectivity.  It is really nice that puzzle cubes can offer the best of both worlds. You can purchase the Fudgedron at Puzzle Master.
