This genuine Rubik's Magic is a brand new production run from Rubik Studio of the classic original puzzle. Quality is excellent and it is a "must have" for the collection of any puzzle enthusiast. Ernö Rubik was granted a Hungarian patent this amazing puzzle on 19th March 1985. It consists of 8 tiles arranged in a 2 x 4 rectangle. They are connected to each other by wires that run in diagonal grooves on the tiles. Each side of the puzzle has its own solution. One solution has 3 three separate rings with the 8 panels in a 4x2 grid (see above). When the reverse side is solved, the picture is of three linked rings with the 8 panels now in a 3x3 grid with one corner missing (see right). The aim is to alternately solve the 2 sides.
