Notes on solving the megaminx

The strategy here is the same as for the 3x3 Rubik's cube:

Moves useful for carrying out these steps are included in the following catalog.

Megaminx catalog of moves

First, some notation. We label the faces f1,f2,...,f6 on top and label the bottom faces f7,f8,...,f12. The same notation is used to indicate the move of the megaminx given by rotaing that face of the megaminx by 72 degrees clockwise. For example, f1 is the move rotating the red face in the picture above.

The pictures above were created using the old Maple package mega.mpl.
