The 2x2x2 Cube (also known as a Pocket Cube or Mini Cube and normally referred to as the 2x2x2 or 2x2) is a twistable puzzle in the shape of a cube that is cut once along each of three axes.

The first such cube was Rubik's Pocket Cube invented by Erno Rubik and released by Ideal Toys in 1981. In 1998 Chen Sen Li patented his East Sheen cube. Since the mid-2000s other brands began to appear such as the LanLan, the Ghosthand and the WitTwo.

This puzzle has 8 corner pieces only. The 2x2x2 cube has 3,674,160 possible positions (assuming one piece is always solved from orienting the puzzle), each of which can be solved in 11 turns (HTM) / 14 turns (QTM) or fewer.
