great cube fun funky and monkey I can solve it but not so fast I am more of a pyraminix, mirror cube kind 'of guy
The 3x3x3 Rubik's cube is a great challenge. I can solve it in a minute or less now. I learned how to solve it about a year ago, and now I can solve a 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 and 6x6. Now I'm looking into buying a 7x7x7! The reason I rated it 4 of 5 stars is because the stickers wear off after lots of use.
I really like this puzzle! It is great, but you might want to lube it to turn better. If it doesn't turn great you just have to work it in.
Hard but not impossible. After learning how to solve it various ways and a lot of practice you can get into the 3-to-4 minute solve rate time. The 90-seconds quoted by someone above is extremely rare. The stickers wear off after a really long time (hundreds of hours) but the cube itself lasts and lasts. Plastic cube held together by springs. The six center pieces rotate only, all of the edge pieces slide around as you rotate any one side. It's very fun to ask someone else to mix it up, and then solve it and give it back to them to mix it up again. Once you learn the moves you prefer (there are many various ways to solve - some are faster but more complex, some are simpler but longer) you can solve anyone's Rubik. And for a mathematical challenge, the instructions are not needed - for a real pleasant challenge, try to solve it WITHOUT the book, for those so inclined.
The 3x3 cube is what got me into speed cubing. This is a delicious little puzzle. challenging beyond your wildest dreams. The stickers lose their protective covers over time, but the cube itself is great.
Hard but not impossible. I learned to solve this almost 30 years ago, and I still can do it in about 90 seconds.
