In this course, I will teach you how to solve the square 1 puzzle. This is a slightly different puzzle than what I've taught in the past. This puzzle is a shape-shifting cube adding another level of difficulty. Although this is the case, because we are limited on movements, this actually works to our advantage and I have pulled together a tutorial that will make solving this as easy as possible. I have removed any unnecessary algorithms from the equation and tried to make this as intuitive as I can. I feel that anyone who decided to take this puzzle on will be pleasantly surprised at the simplicity. I'm sure you will have fun with this one. I'll see you in there!
