~Can You Beat The Cube~
Member Name: newby2
Advantages: good fun
Disadvantages: addictive and a little annoying
The Rubik's Cube has been one of those classic games for so many years and I must say that I remember having one as a child and as I am sure everyone did get too frustrated with it and proceed to peel off the coloured stickers and arrange them so that each side displayed a full colour block. The only downside with doing this is that once this has been done there is no going back and the stickers are not only not very sticky any more but the game itself is ruined as it has not been completed properly.
So with the fact I hadn't ever actually completed the Rubik's Cube and the fact that the one I had as a child had to be thrown away I was always keen to have another one of these and give it a try so when I saw one at a local boot sale a few years back I couldn't resist but pay the £1 price that I haggled it down to and take it home for hours of annoying spinning. The £1 price I paid is pretty good as the RRP of the cube is around the £10 region although you could probably pick it up for a little cheaper than this if you were to shop around.
The aim of the game is simple and all you need do is twist the cube sides around in order to get all of the same colour on one side. There are six different colours which are blue, red, white, orange, yellow and green and as soon as you start twisting the rows around the colours get mixed up. You can twist the cube rows up or down as it is made on a sort of pivot which allows the squares to move in one row at a time.
The game sounds really simple but believe me it isn't. I know there are champions around the world that can do this game in seconds but to be utterly honest I still have yet to complete the silly thing. It is utterly frustrating in an additively fun way. Considering how much fun and how many hours can be spent playing with this cube the £1 I paid for it was certainly worth it. In fact I haven't had it out for a while but writing this review has encouraged me to dig it out of the draw and give it another bash but still to no avail.
You can't beat this classic game and it is certainly one that has lasted the distance and still going strong. If eel that for that reason nothing but a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and a high recommendation is deserved. Of course if anyone has any tips for being able to complete this without pulling out more of my hair I would be very interested to hear your ideas!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
