This cube, designed by Oskar, a Dutch man, is a maze through which a loop is interwoven. The position of the piece trapped inside can be changed by it being moved in a unique way. However, the dilemma is how to remove that piece. When first invented, the start point at which the piece could be removed was not fixed. However, following a suggestion by the late Mr. Nob, the furthermost position was made to resemble a face, and a clear removal start point was thereby designated. Theme: Space

Another Oskar ingenuity. Looks great and friendly, but can be fiddled with for quite long times. Starting and ending points are clearly defined, but the maze is long enough to be very hard to memorize. It makes this puzzle ideal for playing even after solving it several times.
The only drawback is that the golden piece can become stuck in the corners of the outer cube and is quite hard to get it back on it's track.
