A Skewb is solved by turning its corners. Just like a normal cube, the colors are scrambled and the challenge is to get each side to display just one color. The Skewb is however much easier to solve and suits those who don’t quite have the time or patience to learn the Rubik’s cube. This does not mean the puzzle is easy, you may still need to scratch your head for a good while before you figure this one out. The solution itself is different from the Rubik’s cube solution, making this an entertaining variation for those who can already solve a Rubik’s cube.
