Contrary to the big MagicTiles like "Superchop" the small MagicTile "ell

sph cube edge turning 0-4/3-0" has allready a very interesring parity aspect. There are

the smallest 1-color elements in this puzzle which I want name

"cornerfaces". We have 24 such cornerfaces in 4 separated orbits. In

each orbit we have 6 different colors. You can be left with two swaps in

two different orbits. Two orbits allways have an intersection point.

Shift the two remaining swaps to this intersection. Than you can undo

the two swaps by a simple edge turn! But now you have a single corner

swap. What can you do now? Who has an answer? Nan?

I simply restarted the puzzle and hoped to not entry in the parity

problem. It worked by chance (50% ?).

Best regards

Ed
