The Megaminx is manufactured with a high quality black ABS plastic core. This cube has been improved and boasts larger cut-outs for better corner-cutting capabilities. The purpose of this puzzle is to scramble up the sides and then return it so that each face only has one color on it. The Megaminx provides an extra challenge because it has 12 different colored faces that need organizing. This puzzle was designed and manufactured by Uwe Meffert, who was born in Wernigerode, Germany, and has designed many other puzzles.
