Hey, that’s pretty fast! It’s only about twice the time it takes me to simply reassemble the puzzle. That’ll be pretty funny when speedcubing times drop below reassembly times!

How do you plan to handle puzzle orientation? Initially we’d been holding the puzzle in a left-right orientation, but recently people have been finding it more natural to orient it vertically. Maybe what’s most natural depends upon the types of moves each person uses the most.
