Today's featured article is the 2x2x2 Cube.

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

This puzzle only has 8 colored/solvable pieces: 8 corner pieces. 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.
