My cube has ended up in a position where I need to swap the corners diagonally across to finish the cube. However to my understanding this is impossible. Is there another way to solve this? I tried taking the cube apart but the corner pieces are stuck on this particular one. Note that it is the Ghost Cube Black variant. Help me, thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ If you can, could you please provide a picture? But, most importantly, don't take the cube apartthat's cheating! $\endgroup$ – Feeds Jul 15 '18 at 11:56
  • $\begingroup$ @user477343 It's not cheating if someone else took it apart to "stack the cube" against you. See gaslighting. $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Jul 15 '18 at 12:01

    $\begingroup$ @Chowzen Well, that still is cheating — on their part. Besides, why would someone do that? Imagine your mind going through all this trauma to solve the Rubiks cube to then tell yourself, hang on, this is impossible to achieve. But I mean, that would be me, because I don't know any Rubiks cube algorithms, and I like to solve it on my own. (Two sides completed at the same time is my record.) Unless the whole "gaslighting" idea is just a fun game. $\endgroup$ – Feeds Jul 15 '18 at 12:06

Copy-pasted my comment as an answer on request of @Rubio♦:

There are two pair of pieces that are very similar on the Ghost Cube, so you've probably swapped those pieces by accident causing the issues with the last two corners you have now. I don't know which brand of Ghost Cube you have, but make sure everything you've already solved is completely flat. Most likely one of those triangle-shaped corners are swapped (that's usually the case when I solve mine). But it's also possible the three (corner-edge-corner) that are similar are all swapped together.

Pictures (of each of the six sides of the Ghost Cube) would help, though. That way we might be better able to pin-point the problem.

If the corners are stuck in place, I would try solving the cube working from the corners rather then trying to move the corners.
