Solving the Rubiks Cube is easy (ish)!

Using my method (below), with some practice you should be able to solve the cube consistently in less than 10 minutes (I can do it consistently in under 2 minutes using this method, I used a couple of shortcuts to do my record of 77 seconds) 

If you can do one side, then you should be OK to do the whole cube (with some help). If you can get all the edge pieces correct, then you will find it even easier.

If you can’t do one side, then we do have our work cut out, but you may just need a little patience and determination.

My method is deliberately simple and will allow you to actually understand what you are doing why you are doing it and how it all works, rather than requiring you to learn “algorithms”

The method I use has six steps to it and you will need to learn 8 moves (11 if you include left and right variations) although a lot of the moves all VERY similar so they are not even that hard to remember once you have the basic idea 😀

So that’s it, grab a Rubiks cube (buy one here), find a quiet Sunday afternoon (about 1-2 hours), amaze yourself at how easy it is, then go out and stun your friends with what you learnt over the weekend!

Here is a lovely sticker less cube (which will prevent you from thinking about cheating!): http://amzn.to/2BzCBAk 
(same as the one shown in the Amazon box elsewhere on this page)


    Introduction

    There are only 6 steps and 8 moves to learn (11 moves if you count the left and right versions as two each):

    1. Move the side pieces to the top layer (Two basic moves)
    2. Move the corner pieces to the top layer (Two moves with one having left and right versions)
    3. Move the second layer side pieces (One move, left and right versions)
    4. Create the cross on the bottom (One move)
    5. Align the cross colours on the bottom (One move)
    6. Move the bottom corners around (One move, left and right versions)

    Step 1: Top Cross

    Step 2: Top Corners
    Step 3: Middle Row
    Step 4: Bottom Cross

    Step 5: Bottom Corners


    Do you want me to teach you one to one?!

    If you really want to, I am happy to help you 1-1 to get there via a video chat (like I use Zoom, which is like Skype or Facetime). I will do one-off calls for quick questions and clarifications for £10 (click here) or you can pay me £77 (my current record is 77 seconds!) (Click here) and I will help you solve it in less than one hour. I guarantee you will be able to finish the cube at least once with my help if you can’t then I will give you your money back… OR if you need more time after that first hour (you should not) then I am happy to keep supporting you until you have done it at least once!
