Year in review: 2016's best puzzles 0

It's the end of 2016! We've seen many puzzles released this year, some that were so good they pushed the boundaries of what was possible, and others that were...disappointing, to say the least. Let's focus on the positives, shall we? We'll take a step back through the year and look at the puzzles with the most innovations, best values, or simply best turning feel enjoyed by the world this year.

QiYi WuQue 4x4 review 1

In our new wave of big cubes, we finally get a new 4x4! This is the QiYi WuQue, the first 4x4 from one of the big players we've seen in a while and the one touted to be the AoSu killer. Can it accomplish its steep charge?

MoYu WeiShi 6x6x6 review 0

For the past couple of weeks we've been in a new wave of newer, better big cubes as cube companies update their lineup. This is the MoYu WeiShi, a new 6x6x6 from MoYu designed to succeed the AoShi. How well does it live up to that task?

Cong's Design Meichen Skewb review 3

This one's been coming for a while, hasn't it? The Cong's Design Meichen was a pretty anticipated Skewb teased months ago. We hadn't heard much about it since, until it was dropped on us a few weeks back. Let's see if it lives up to the hype, shall we?

MoFang JiaoShi MF5S 5x5x5 review 3

MoYu's been adding a lot of subbrands lately, but as of now the only one that seems to be trying to come out with a full lineup is MoFang JiaoShi, or Cubing Classroom. As we remember from our budget 3x3x3 roundup, MoFang JiaoShi's first attempt at a 3x3x3 was a strong refresh of the venerable GuanLong and stacked up well to current competitors on the market, even if it didn't definitively beat them. So how good is their attempt at a 5x5? Let's find out.

QiYi WuShuang 5x5x5 review 1

To set a baseline for some big-cube reviews that might come up soon, I'm going to take a small step back and look at a cube that was released not too long ago. This is the QiYi WuShuang, everyone.
