It has a total of 50 separate pieces. Start the Megaminx simulator. The Megaminx is an official WCA competition event. On the image above a white and a black-body Megaminx is accompanied by their smaller brother, the 2x2 Kilominx Flowerminx , a dodecahedron-shaped Rubik's Cube shape mod and a 3x3 cube. The bigger dodecahedrons are called Gigaminx, Teraminx, Petaminx, Zettaminx, all the way up to the record-breaking Yottaminx image below.

Hello Guys! This is TheGreatCK! This instructable is about how to solve a megaminx. A megaminx is basically a dodecahedron having 12 sides. In case you don't, click here. This method of solving a megaminx is invented by me, and though the basic layout is same, the moves are entirely based on the normal 3X3 Rubik's Cube. In case you learn this method and tell someone else, don't forget to give me credit. Anyway, let's get started! Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Just like you do on the Rubik's Cube. Look at image Now do any 4 corners on your megaminx. Leave one just like that. Look at image 2. Even this step matches with the Rubik's Cube.
We have to solve the middlepieces. Follow images 1,2, Now we have to solve the last 2 remaining pieces image 4. You must be familiar with this step from the Rubik's Cube. Follow images 5,6 for a little guidance. Still a lot to go! If you look at image 1 here, you'll realise what I mean by 'snake'. And image 2 are the three pieces on each bottom of the snake, which we're gonna solve.
First, we'll solve the side pieces. You have to do this yourself without breaking the solved pieces. There is no algorithm for this. Now to bring the corner in place follow images 3,4. A video of the algorithm in image 4 is given below. Here, you have to complete the snake by adding a corner in the right place. Image 1. Its just like you put a corner in place in a Rubiks Cube.
And you also have to put the middlepiece above the corner that you just solved. For that, there is an algorithm which is in image 3. A video for the algorithm in image 3 is also given. This is the main hard part of solving the megaminx. Now, you have to bring about this position. And then image So, follow algorithms in images 4,5,6,7. These might be your possible positions. Then to bring the corners in place, follow image 7.
There's only 1 algorithm. You might need to do it more than once or twice. Last step of the solving. Please remember that in whatever algorithms I have given here, if you go wrong, even in one move, it won't be reversible. You'll have to go back again to step 3. So pay attention here. To turn the corners upwards there's an algorithm. Follow image 1. There's also one more bonus algorithm which is given in a video below called 'Bonus Algorithm'. Your Megaminx may be in a position like the images given here.
Match your position and carry out the algorithms given there. There is one- a common algorithm for all of the possible positions. It is also given in a video below. Remember that here, as I have given it for making it easier, one algorithm in a position may lead to another position. I have done this to make it easy for you. I have given all the possible positions that might occur. In case you encounter a position which is not give here, post your position with a photo and I'll give you a solution and add it here.
Best of luck with your last step! For People In Canada. For people In UK. For People In France. For People In China. For People In Italy.
