Hello Melinda,
I’ve been loosely following the discussion and developments of the physical 2x2x2x2.I’m interested in acquiring one pre-fabricated. It looks like itwill take too much time for me to build one myself.

What’s the price?
(You’re amazing, by the way!)

Hello Marc,

Good point about rule sets. Solution notes makes sense but I don't<br>
want to tarnish anyone's accomplishment. I decided to be much more<br>
liberal about this than I am for MC4D, especially for past<br>
solutions. In those cases I'm pretty much just deciding whether the<br>
person appears to have demonstrated the ability to solve the puzzle.<br>
I encourage those people to produce a new or updated video using the<br>
canonical set but I don't want to require that.

I really want to add your name to the list too. We're now up to 6,<br>
so if you want to get in the first 10, you should probably get<br>
moving! &#58;-)

Happy puzzling!

   Hi, Melinda,


  Good idea to start the HOF list.   It's worth noting that there<br>
  are a variety of rule sets, and associated details, being used in<br>
  the first four solutions on the list (I'm not familiar with the<br>
  5th, Joseph's).   


  Because our rule sets are still in flux, and because I think they<br>
  should STAY in flux for quite a while ... I suggest adding a<br>
  &quot;notes&quot; field to the HOF list, to describe what kind of solution<br>
  it was.


  Here are the notes I'd personally attach to the first four<br>
  solutions on the HOF list.


  Bob's&#58;  strict rules, well described, no video

  Zander's&#58;  parity violating 4-cycles used, full video

  Luna's&#58;  strict rules, full video

  Chris's&#58;  poor scramble, semi-strict rules, 4-cycle shortcuts used<br>
  with parity correction, has video

Just a quick note to let you know that I’ve created a HOF for the physical 2^4. All
feedback welcome. If any of you besides Zander and Luna have
solved it, I’d love to add you to the list. We’re currently
up to solver #5, so if you want to get yourself into the
first 10, it would be good to do that soon as we’ve already
shipped over 30 puzzles! The Can-Chris-Solve videos resulted
in at least 10 sales, and he plans to launch a final video
on Saturday in which he fixes his pop and properly finishes
his solve.
