I got a Magic puzzle from Cube4You today. This is my first time using a Magic, so I didn't really know what I was doing. I folded it up, and... well... I can't get it back to a flat position again.

Is there any easy way to do this?

BTW, my puzzle is an 8x2 Magic. >_<

Hmm, you might as well pull it apart with care and put it back together by referring to photos of the same puzzle online.

Then search for an online solution if you want.

Otherwise, don't use too much force when trying to solve it. It doesn't require much force...

Tim.

This thing is insane to restring. I've got all of my tiles laid out in order, and I've got all of my string loops in tact. I taped each of the pieces together so that they don't fall apart without taping over the grooves. I understand exactly how the string needs to go around the 3 tiles. But I can't get it to stay in place while I do it. Is there some trick to it?

google is your friend. as well as the search feature on this site. I got my magic a week or two ago and was easily able to find a site telling me how to solve my scrambled magic. I also on youtube easily found a tutorial (by Erik) for solving my magic properly very fast.

what site did you find? I found Jaap's page but it doesn't make any sense :confused:
ya same here
I eventually figured out his page, but it took about 20 reads through it... and then I only really understand the regular magic and not the master. Maybe I'll make a youtube vid on how to unscramble a magic. I haven't seen a video tutorial on it yet, has anyone else?

I got my magic about two weeks ago, and I've gotten my PB down to 1.33. It's a lot of fun but mine breaks too easily. I've had to restring my magic at least two hundred times already.

link, if it's a magic tutorial you made, there's wayyyyyyy too many tutorials on youtube. It's not worth uploading. Of course, If it's a solve, go for it. :D
