Product Description
Rocket Twist is an unusual twisty puzzle. It has four corners, three edges and three centers. It looks like a rocket in its solved state. The puzzle is a jumbling puzzle that seems to operate like a quasi-doctrinaire twisty puzzle. What makes the puzzle unusual is that the rotation axes are not fixed. Depending on the state of the puzzle, the rotation axis of a rotating center can be at different places.

The puzzle has three canonical states: "rocket", "left" and "right". There are three possible turns from rocket to left or to right, two possible turns from left to rocket or right, and two possible turns from right to rocket or left. When starting and ending as rocket, one can make the following sequences.
rocket - left - rocket
rocket - right - rocket
rocket - left - right - rocket
rocket - right - left - rocket
rocket - left - right - left - rocket
rocket - right - left - right - rocket
etcetera.

Of course, if one repeats left-right-left-right enough times, one returns to the start state. Quiz question: how many moves would that be?
