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.

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?

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.

You got a camera, lets see some proof ;), I might upload my proof if I can find out how to make my cellphone record for more than 15 seconds. :(

Nice video :D

Looks like you use the "manual's" method :)

Doesn't matter to me what it's called :p

So long as it gets the job done! :D

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 :D)

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. :p

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 :eek:

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