1. The Mirror Cube Review

The principle behind the Mirror Cube is quite simple: The surfaces are no longer colored, but distinguished by shape. As a result, there are interesting deformations during the solving process. If you have already solved the normal Rubik’s Cube, then the Mirror Cube is not a new challange for you. After some time you will have the hang of it – nevertheless, the half solved mirror cube is very nice to look at. The Mirror Cube is not only available in silver, but also with gold stickers. On Amazon, you can buy the mirror cube starting at $8 – so it’s definitely worth a look!

2. Megaminx Magic Cube Review

This magic cube has a unique shape. Twelve layers can be rotated, significantly increasing the difficulty of this puzzle. The cube is lightweight and with about 7 cm diameter very handy. Unfortunately, the price of this magic cube is relatively high, which is probably because the cube is so much more complex. The Megaminx magic cube usually costs about 20 euros.

3. Pyraminx 3x3 Review

This 3×3 pyramid shaped cube does not look like the normal Rubiks Cube – but this variant is actually similar solvable as the 3×3 magic cube. The only difficulty: Through various deformations during the solution process, it gets a bit confusing. So if you are looking for a new challenge, you will not be satisfied with this cube for long. For beginners, this pyramid is indeed a good alternative. The price/performance is also very convincing. You can buy this toy for about $8.

4. Pyraminx 2x2 Review

Here comes the smaller 2×2 pyramid cube variant. But that does not mean that it’s totally easy to solve the pyramid. As with the big brother, the shape of the pyramid also changes in this model. Of course this is an entry-level model – so the pyramid is perfect as a small gift.

5. Magic Windmill Cube

This windmill magic cube has an eye catcher design. However, this cube is not harder to solve, than the regular 3×3 magic cube. In its solved state the windmill cube will deform into a regular cube shape.

6. SKEWB XTREME Cube

This unusual magic cube also deforms during the dissolution process. Unfortunately, this model does not have cutting corners, so the magic cube quickly gets locked. But still: This cube is a great toy for beginners to advanced cubers.

7. Ghost Cube Review

The Ghost Cube works on a similar way than the Mirror Cube does. Your only orientations are the different shapes. But in this case the symmetry is lost very quickly. Only with concentration and practice you can solve this cube. Therefore, the Ghost Cube is a real challenge even for professionals.

8. The Gear Ball

This is a high quality gear puzzle with an unique and impressive appearance. You can turn this cube effordless. This is the best gear puzzle on the market right now.

9. The Flower Cube

The flower cube stands out for its beautiful shapes. Looking at a surface, it looks a bit like a shamrock in the middle. The cube not only twists as it does in the usual way, but its outward shape changes after every move. That makes this dice especially tricky. The biggest disadvantage of this cube is that it does not spin fast. Because the shape is constantly changing and thus the magic cube gets locked now and then. If you are looking for something new you are well served with this magic cube.

10. Time Machine Cube for pros

Last but not least we present you an extremely hard puzzle. Even experienced cubers will come to their limits here. For this cube, three properties have to be exactly right: the color, the shape and the numbering. This requirement makes the cube very difficult to solve. This special magic cube is also very expensive. But for collectors or cube freaks its worth the money.
