### 2x2x3 Cuboid

The 2x2x3 Cuboid is a twisty puzzle where, due to its cuboid shape, the side faces can only be turned 180°. Well, actually you can turn them 90° also (and anything in between) but if you want to do any other turns, 180° is the go. This makes for a different movement of pieces than we see on the Rubiks cube.

The Basic Plot
1. Solve the edges.
2. Solve the corners.
Step 1: Solve Edges

The first step is to solve the edges. This is straightforward and can be done by simple twists or using edge piece series. We're guided by looking at the corners to see which edges should be next to each other.

Step 2: Solve Corners

Once the edges are solved, we can solve the corners using corner piece series. When two corners need to be swapped, we turn the upper layer and then re-solve corners. the following video will tell you all you need to know.

And that's it. Your 2x2x3 Cuboid is now solved. I trust this site has been helpful. If you have any questions or want some clarifications, please use the comments to do so.
