These solves are insane. Congrats to all of them!!

Can you confirm on Russell’s 3^6 solve? I looked into his log file. The timestamp is 272921580 milliseconds, which is about 75 hours.

The MHT633 52C took 4 months by timer??? This has left me speechless. What an effort!

What 4D game are you designing? Is it like a puzzle or not?

Before that he wrote about a problem with the last corner peice (there was a kind of orientation problem that may be seen in Magic Tiles sometimes) - but solved it in less than one day. Number of twists is more that 5.17 millions and total time of solve is almost 4 months (by timer)! Now Philip is Number One in the list of 52C solvers. Congratulations!
