What is a Kilominx?
The Kilominx (also called the 2×2 Megaminx or Kibiminx) is a two-layer version of the Megaminx. Like the Megaminx, it has twelve colored faces, but it does not have visible centers or edges. It has twenty movable corners. Each face is shaped like a pentagon and has five corners.
Is a Kilominx easy?
This step is arguably the simplest of the entire puzzle. It is entirely intuitive (or uses one simple 4 move algorithm if you have learnt a beginner method) and can be done in the exact same way as the first layer on a 2×2, except with five corners instead of 4.

What’s the best way to solve a Kilominx?
Step 1: We solve the white face on the bottom of the puzzle. Making sure we match the pairs along the side as well. Step 2: We turn the puzzle upside down and solve the next layer up, “layer 2” if you will. This step is very similar to solving a 3x3x3. Step 3: We then solve layer 3.

The Megaminx is famous for its apparent difficulty yet simplistic solution (to those who can solve the Rubik’s Cube, that is). This in turn led to the creation of higher-order Megaminx puzzles, such as the Master Kilominx, Gigaminx, Teraminx etc. But what if it was made simpler? This is where the Kilominx puzzle comes in.
