Size comparison from left to right Rubik's Cube (5.7cm) My 1999 original Golden Cube (7.9 cm) My 2014 Golden Cube 2 Extreme (7.6 cm) Mefferts 2007 mass produced Golden Cube (8 cm) 

On the left is my Golden Cube 2. All 4 versions of it have a triangular piece with no obvious orientation plus a square piece similarly with no obvious orientation. These pieces will cause parity issues for the solver. So parity issue pieces = 2 The central puzzle above is my original Golden Cube. This had a triangular piece with no obvious orientation. So parity issue pieces = 1 The puzzle on the right is Meffert's mass produced version of my original Golden Cube. Although it had a triangular piece unfortunately its symmetry was lost and orientation is obvious. So parity issue pieces = 0.

2014 marks 15 years since I created the world's first Golden Cube. For sometime now I have wanted to make a sequel (probably not the correct word but never mind). I could see ways of making one more interesting, lighter, smaller with better stickers, harder and more extreme. 1. As with the first, you solve it by shape alone since all the parts are unique and there is only one colour. Ok, so the other three versions. From previous discussions I get the impression some people dislike any sort of bandaging or restrictions on a puzzle. For those people I have made an unbandaged version. Kind of defeats the extreme element a bit but with the possible parity errors it should still be an interesting improvement on the original.
