Futtminx is a tribute to the brilliant Tuttminx design by Lee Tutt
, and mass produced by Leslie Lee / VeryPuzzle
. The hexagonal faces of the original Tuttminx can only be turned by multiples of 120 degrees. If one tries to makes 60-degrees turns with the Tuttminx, then adjacent turns are blocked. It is not possible to fully unbandage Tuttminx into a doctrinaire puzzle, as Tuttminx is arguably a puzzle that jumbles
"Futtminx" stands for "Fudged Tuttminx". The corners are fudged into threefold symmetry, where all edges are fudged and made identical. The puzzle has a lot of gaps between the pieces as a result of the fudging. Also, the pieces shift a bit during a turn to make all turns possible, including 60-degrees hexagon turns.
