Smart Alex Archive

With the immense success of Rubik's Cube, many geometrical combinatorial puzzles were brought to market. These included Pyraminx and Megaminx by Tomy. Smart Alex was such a puzzle. Unlike Rubik's Cube, whose natural orientation of colors is determined by the center square on each block, Smart Alex has no such square. All of its pieces can move. Instead, the orientation of the colors is provided by the sticker on the front of the puzzle. The top is yellow, the right side is blue, the bottom is white, and the left side is red.
