I spent a lot of time working through the design of my Powered Synergy Cube. Throughout that process, the cube went though many different shapes and forms (you can look through all the different changes I have made on the cube here, there are over 95 pages of updates!

So the way to interpret this table is: Given the card in the first column, adding the […]
