I am hoping that my review will give a unique perspective on this puzzle as I am blind but still love puzzles.
I bought the mini, but I feel much of this review is relevant to both versions.
If you are a fan of Soma Cube and similar puzzles, this is an
excellent addition to your collection. In addition to the 7 Soma
pieces, the set includes:
-W and X Pentacubes
-The 4 non-planar pentacubes created by adding a cube to a t tetracube.
I cannot comment on the appearance of the pieces, but the seem to be
made out of solid, if lightweight wood and have a nice, woodgrain
texture. Best I can tell, the individual cubies of the mini are the
same size as the plastic Soma cubes that are sold under the name
Block-by-bloack(~19 mm), which is nice because it means I can
mix-and-match pieces between my Dee cube and my 3 plastic Soma cubes
for building larger shapes.
The Mini doesn't include the challenges that come with the full-sized
version, but that isn't much of a lost for a blind solver. Do be aware
that the mini comes shrink wrapped with no means of storage.
