I saw this Rubik’s Twist today in a Toy shop where everything had a 30% discount. Surprisingly it cost only R55 and even though it’s probably designed for children the shapes you can make with it is still mind-boggling. This newest addition brings my Rubik’s type puzzle collection to… hmmm… only twelve. I thought it […]
I’m slowly expanding my Rubik’s Cube Collection and today I bought this very cool Angry Birds cube in a R5 store for R8. It proved to actually be quite challenging and if it wasn’t for the photos I took before I started to scramble it I would not have been able to solve it again.
I’m starting to make a habit of finding patterns by mistake. I got this one after trying to undo to a error I made while swopping the edge pieces on the last layer. I like to call it the Checkered cross-line as it consist of two checkered faces, two faces that have a cross on […]
I came accross this pattern after trying to solve a zig zag pattern by doing the 4-spot solve. I got the algorithm using Cube Explorer 5: R2 F2 U2 B2 F2 U2 F2 R2 (8f*)
This is a very unique pattern, that looks great yet it is quite easy to do. Here’s how to do it: First do the Pons asinorum pattern: F2 B2 R2 L2 U2 D2 Then you do the cube in a cube algorithm: F L F U’ R U F2 L2 U’ L’ B D’ B’ L2 […]
I recently started playing around with the Rubik’s Cube. I started out with Jasmine Lee’s Beginner’s Guide. Through practise I got times relatively good times ranging form 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes. I now started learning more algorithm, but still need to improve on my finger speed.
