## Pyramorphix

### Notation:

• L+ ...turn the LEFT edge CLOCKWISE (1/4 turn)
• L2 ...turn the LEFT edge HALF-WAY AROUND (1/2 turn)
• L- ...turn the LEFT edge COUNTER-CLOCKWISE (1/4 turn)
• R+ ...turn the RIGHT edge CLOCKWISE (1/4 turn)
• R2 ...turn the RIGHT edge HALF-WAY AROUND (1/2 turn)
• R- ...turn the RIGHT edge COUNTER-CLOCKWISE (1/4 turn)
• B+ ...turn the BACK spine CLOCKWISE (1/4 turn)
• B2 ...turn the BACK spine HALF-WAY AROUND (1/2 turn)
• B- ...turn the BACK spine COUNTER-CLOCKWISE (1/4 turn)

### Step 1: Transform the Puzzle Back to Normal

Because the puzzle mutates with each move, it may be hard to keep track of which side is what. Focus on the center tile (upside-down triangle) on the front side, and do not allow it to move at all during the transformation.

## B- L- B+

`        `

## R+ B+

`        `

## L- B-

`    `
`        `
`        `

## B-

`        `

## R2 L+

`        `

## L- B+ R-

...Other solutions exist.

### Step 2: Solve the Vertices

#### I. Match 2 Vertices Together

`        `

## R2 (check)B2 (check)L2 (check)

Repeat the 3 moves (4 times max)
until 2 vertices match colors on 2 sides
(the front and any other side).
Check for a match between moves.
`        `

#### II. Swap the Other 2 Vertices in Place

`        `

## B2

If and only if necessary.
`        `

#### III a. Rotate a Single Vertice Clockwise

`        `

## R+ B+ L+R+ B+ L+ R+ B+ L+R+ B+ L+

`        `

#### III b. Rotate a Single Vertice Counter-Clockwise

`        `

`    `

## B- R2 L+ B2 R+

`    `
Result:
`        `

`    `

## R2 B2 L2R2 B2 L2

`    `
Result:

`    `

## B- R2 L+ B2 R+

`    `
Result:
Go to Case V
`        `

`    `

## B- R2 L+ B2 R+

`    `
Result:
Go to Case I
`        `

`    `

`    `
Result:
Go to Case I
