"Is it possible to link searches of "sudoku cube, sudoku kube, and sudocube onto this page? This new toy is known by many names as of late." -Kyle

Someone gave me a Rubik's Cube and an electronic Sudoku game for Christmas and I wondered if anyone had ever combined them. I was thinking that a 9x9x9 'Sudokube' would be a little hard to solve.  :-) 69.141.232.16 02:10, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Orientation?

"This makes solving the cube slightly more difficult than a conventional Rubik's Cube because each number must be in the right place and in the correct orientation."

I'm not sure I follow. I thought that the Rubik's Cube was designed in such a way that there is only one possible combination that corresponds to a correctly solved cube - i.e. the orientation of the squares is always the same on a solved cube. 217.155.20.163 18:10, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

What you say is in fact true, except for the centre cubies. Effectively, the cube is equivalent to those Rubik's cubes you sometimess see that have a picture in each face in the solved state instead of colours. I have ammended the text to reflect this. Swap 00:09, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
The center square of each of the faces cannot actually be moved. It may be rotated in place when one of the faces move, but each center square always stays the same in relation to the other centers. For example, if a 7 is in the center square on one side and on the side directly opposite there is a 4 for the center square, no matter how the cube is rotated, the 7 and 4 will always remain opposite. The same holds true for any of the adjacent faces. They can rotate, but all four adjacent centers rotate together, and thus the relation between any one face's center and the four adjacent centers will always remain unchanged as well. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.72.52.253 (talk) 04:30, 6 April 2007 (UTC).
Yeah; it's the rotation of the centre squares that's the additional thing. On a sudoku cube, there's at least one solution in which on each face all the numbers are the same way up. Sabik (talk) 09:09, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Clean up

I placed a cleanup tag on this article. The description of the cube makes very little sense. Is the orientation of the numbers significant or not? What's a "cubie"? Jargon and slang should be avoided. Who produces this cube? It says it's harder than a Rubik's Cube, but why -- and says who? Oh yeah, the whole thing is completely unsourced. 67.168.67.136 15:35, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Article move notes

This article was once located at Sudokube. I moved the article because during the AfD it was discovered that the Sudoku Cube is the better represented product while the Sudokube appears to be a minor copy (based on sources found). Bill (talk|contribs) 17:32, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
