The 6x6x6 cube (normally referred to as the 6x6x6 or 6x6) is a twistable puzzle in the shape of a cube that is cut five times along each of three axes. The only available brand for this puzzle was the V-Cube, which was patented by Panagiotis Verdes. The V-Cube 6x6 incorporates a clicking mechanism designed to keep the hidden middle layer in alignment with the rest of the pieces. Several mods have been developed to fix this, most notably the MeMyselfandPi 6x6 mod, which involves eliminating the clicking mechanism and using pins instead to keep the inner middle layer in alignment. Shengshou released their 6x6x6 in mid-2011. Other 6x6x6 cubes have since been released by Moyu, QiYi, and YuXin. Most 6x6x6 cubes developed after the V-Cube use an internal alignment mechanism and do not have a clicking mechanism.

This puzzle has a total of 96 center pieces, a total of 48 edge pieces, and 8 corners, and has 1.6 * 10^116 positions.
