# Rubik's Cube

Hey! Rubik's Cubes. It's the most famous puzzle game out there. How fast can you solve one? I did in 6:39:90. That's Minutes:Seconds:Milliseconds.

1) Fi U Li Ui

2) Ri Di R D

3) U R Ui Ri Ui Fi U F

4) Ui Li U L U F Ui Fi

5) F R U Ri Ui Fi

6) R U Ri U R U U Ri

7) U R Ui Li U Ri Ui L

8) Ri Di R D

These are assuming you know the right notation. If you don't, just check out pogobat's videos. They explain it all.

P.S. I'm not as fast as a lot of people out there and I know it. So don't go and say "You're so slow! NOOB!!" Ok?

I don't understand how you even solve those things. I had one for 6 years and I still can't solve it.

hey, this puzzle was a CRAZE at my school at one time.

many students knew how to solve it. from freshmen to seniors. i'm a senior.
i learned from my classmates and now, maybe i'm faster than them.

the school even organized an official contest because of its popularity.

well... my personal best is about 2 mins and 30 seconds... or faster...
i can't remember. it's been a few months since i timed myself.

hmmm... maybe the video mode is set for MMS. try changing that. i encountered that problem too...

well, i can't upload 'cause i'm only on dial-up.

anyways, what does those alogarithms in the first post mean???

Here is my order:

White Cross
1st Layer
2nd Layer
Yellow Cross
Corners
3rd Layer

##### is now a game developer :)
after doing the corners, there are lots of possibilites for the third layer.

the fish is the easiest for me.

Nice video

Looks like you use the "manual's" method

#### Sevion

##### The DIY Ninja
Doesn't matter to me what it's called

So long as it gets the job done!

If we had a Rubik's Cube competition at my school I'd still probably win. (I doubt anyone at my school can even get one layer solved correctly )

I just bought the damn thing out of curiosity around 1995 or so, I never solved until 2004 or so I just couldn't find the right way of solving it until my friend showed me how on a manual that he bought it from.

#### Sevion

##### The DIY Ninja
Lol. I solved again in 2:51:00

Still trying to get under 2:00:00

Well. I first found it when I was like 6 at my buddy's house. He had one and I started to twist it. I got one side, white, almost solved. Before now, I never realized that some edge pieces were in the wrong side

I also realized this when I was reading the manual you don't solve each side but your solve by rows instead.

#### Sevion

##### The DIY Ninja
Yep. Rows. I don't like solving faces. Too complicated for me XP
