    Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

    Fudball was inspired by the Soccer Slide puzzle, designed and built by Iwona Gorczyca. Iwona's original design has sliding rhombuses and isosceles triangles. Each of the six great circles can be turned in steps of 72 degrees. By fudging a bit, Oskar turned all pieces into equilateral triangles, allowing 24 degrees steps.

    The puzzle is related to the Doctor Skewb by Carl Hoff, which also features intersecting great circles of tokens around a sphere. Whereas Carl's design has four intersecting great circles, Fudball has six.

    Unfortunately, it takes rather much force to push the tiles. For this reason, the puzzle is not for sale with Shapeways.

    Watch the YouTube video.
    Watch the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
