This is a fun one. In early 2020, Tingman – a cubing YouTuber you should all checkout – created a random cube name generator which gave some interesting results. The fan favorite name ended up being the Yeet Lord. The name was then changed and puzzle manufacturer YJ was challenged to somehow incorporate “yeet” into a new puzzle’s name. And behold, the Yeet Ball was born! The puzzle is essentially a spherical Ivy cube so it is quite an easy solve. It’s great to see big puzzle manufactures like YJ get so involved with the puzzle community. YEET!
