I’m a big fan of the Rubik’s cube and the mystery surrounding them. I can remember messing up a Rubik’s Cube and then handing it off to my grandfather who would take it home, solve it, and return it to me a few days later.
How to Solve a Rubik’s Cube
There are a few different beginner methods for solving a Rubik’s Cube. This is the third method I’ve tried and it is my favorite by far. Ethan Rhoads, the son of a co-worker, introduced me to this method.

Going back to my original Rubik’s Cube it is amazing how difficult it is to turn. I highly recommend getting a speed cube.
Personally, I’m a big fan of this Rubik’s Speed Cube. There are other popular speed cubes that have a more modern appearance but I’m partial to the original look.
My personal best recorded time is 1 min 51 seconds.

Rubik’s Cube Cartoon
I have fond memories of watching this Rubik’s Cube cartoon and wishing I knew how to solve one. Unfortunately, despite the many times I’ve now solved a Rubik’s Cube the amazing Rubik has not yet appeared 😀.
