M24 Cube

The M24 Cube is based on the Mathieu M24 group, a sporadic simple group known from Group Theory.

The goal is to scramble and restore the cube by using combinations of just three basic moves ('Left Move', 'Right Move' and 'Switch' Move). These moves only affect edges, which are numbered from 0 through 23. In the inital state, any edge and the neighbouring corner show a same number. Since corners stay at the same place, they can be used as a reference frame to move edges back to their initial locations.
