The Skewb is a cube that moves the way you wouldn’t expect it to. It’s a recipe for hours of "How does it move like that?" fun!
The name comes "Skew" and "Cube" (how it moves, and what it is).
To operate the Skewb you can twist half of it through 120x. Each half rotates around the line between opposite corners.
The Skewb moves a group of three mid-faces and four corners through 120x by rotating around the corner at the center of the group. It has precision injection molded parts with spring-loaded bearings which make operation easy and exact.
The Idea of the Puzzle
The idea of the puzzle is to scramble the colors and then return them to the initial state of six single-colored sides. There are 37,791,360 possible positions of the Skewb. It is theoretically possible to solve it in 10 or less moves.
The Skewb is difficult enough to be a real challenge, but easy enough to master, without help, in a few days.

Excellent puzzle. The stickers haven't even begun to peel after 2 weeks of daily usage, the mechanism almost never pops (it only came apart when I gave it to one of my youngest relatives and he had no idea how it turned) and it looks awesome. My only complaint is that it's really loud due to the internal locking mechanism (a series of nubs and holes that keep it from turning when you don't want it to). Definitely worth $20.
