Looking for Buckyballs tricks? You came to the right place.
Every few days we’ll be posting new tricks, games, shapes, how-to’s and more fun stuff you can do with your Buckyballs.
This, our first installment of the series, is less of a trick really and more of a must-know for any true Bucky-lover. Making the cube is just that important. Here’s how it’s done:
Step 1 – Pull all 216 of your Buckyballs into a straight line.
Step 2 – Count 36 ball in and fold so that each ball lines up perfectly with it’s neighbor.
Step 3 – Now turn the chain the other way and zip it down again. Do it 3 more times, and the shape you’re left with is a sheet of Buckyballs 6 x 36.
Step 4 – Count six balls in and fold the sheet, lining up the balls just like you did when it was a chain you were folding.
Step 5 – Now fold the other way. Three more folds and you’ll have made the cube. There’s not a trick to it really, but be careful; one wrong move and you could be starting over. Buckyballs are like that.
Even in writing it can sound difficult, but watch the video above and everything should snap perfectly into place.
Stay tuned… more tricks you can do with your Buckyballs are on the way!
