Rubik's Dodekahedron (Supernova)

A nice 3D puzzle similar to Rubik's cube is Rubik's dodekahedron which has 12 regular pentagon sides, each consisting of 5 vertices, 5 edges and one middle. To solve the dodekahedron it is necessary to find move sequences (I called them tricks) which interchange only a few cubis. This was the difficult part. Once you have these tricks, the dodekahedron can easily be solved by suitably selecting and executing them. The solution I found is similar to that of the cube.

With these tricks it is easy to figure out how to combine them and to solve the dodekahedron.
