Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Rubik's Cubes & Twisty Puzzles

So lately, I've developed a huge interest in cubing. I began a few months back when I got bored and wanted to learn to solve my old cube. Ever since I memorized the 3x3, I've been hooked since. Six months later, I now own 16 different puzzles, with 4 more due to arrive in the mail soon.

I set a new personal record a minute ago of 33.2 seconds while playing EE in another tab, which made me wonder... Does anyone else here cube? (Or peel stickers?)

I can solve a 3x3 Rubix's Cube in 1 minute. Not really very fast but at least I can solve it.

Re: Rubik's Cubes & Twisty Puzzles

My PB on 3x3 is 12.05 i think

I own a ton of them but I kinda lost interest - still pick one up though every now and then. Favorite is probably 2x2

That's amazing! Do you know all of CFOP? Also, what kind of puzzles do you own? What's your main cube?

so ye

My current mains are all MoYu too; a stickerless LingPo, a Cubicle HuaLong, an AoSu 4x4, and a BoCuang 5x5. I'm gonna switch from the HuaLong to the YueXiao when it arrives though. I started learning two-look oll yesterday and so far, I have two out of seven cases memorized. But I also memorized the Curvy Copter while I was at it.

My current collection is a Rubik's 2x2 (ew), a MoYu LingPo, a Rubik's 3x3 (surprisingly good), a MoYu HuaLong, a MoYu AoSu, a ShengShou 5x5, a MoYu BoCuang, a ShengShou Megaminx, a SS Pryaminx, an SS Square-1, a LanLan Skewb, a LanLan 3x3x2, a Yuxin Mirror Cube, an Axis Cube, and a Meffert's Curvy Copter.

Soon, I'll have a GuoGuan YueXiao, a QiYi Thunderclap, a Yuxin Fire, and a YJ GuanPo.

Re: Rubik's Cubes & Twisty Puzzles

I like cubes, but I only own a 2x2 and I still can't solve it. It's a combination of lack of skill and me not trying. Although, I used to know the trick to circular Rubik's Cube. (Yeah, it doesn't make sense, but I can't think of any other way to explain it)

Out of curiosity, what is the trick to cubes? Memorizing all past moves?

Yes, memorization is almost essential. On the beginner's method for a 3x3, besides the first step, you have to memorize algorithms (certain sequences of moves), and when/where to perform them. Algs help switch pieces around without messing up everything else. I learned how to solve the 3x3 using the official Rubik's how-to, but this guy does a great tutorial too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wf3YgBZMVyw

The 3x3 beginner's method only requires memorizing 5 algorithms, but advanced speed methods require 100s. As far as the 2x2 goes, you only need to memorize two algs.

Cool! I should get a cube and try that //forums.everybodyedits.com/img/smilies/big_smile

Re: Rubik's Cubes & Twisty Puzzles

Just got a new personal record of 30.5 seconds! I'm trying for sub-30 now, but I can't seem to get there no matter how hard I try.

Surely you realize that gravedigging a years old thread just to flame someone isn't going to bode well for you, right?
