Rubiks Cube- Can You Beat The Cube?
Member Name: lorrainek858
Advantages: Great puzzle game
Disadvantages: I paid a bit much for mine
I never really played with Rubik's Cubes when I was younger, it wasn't until recently when I was in a Gadget Store and seen one for £10 sitting in the novelty items that I decided that I would pick it up and give it a go.
The Rubick's Cube is a regular looking cube, with 9 squares on each face andis divided into 9 different squares of 6 different colours on each face, the colours that are on the original Rubik Cube are Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, White and Orange.
The aim of the Rubik Cube is to get each face to match up all the colours so every face has 9 squares on it all the same colour. You move the smaller squares around by twisting and turning the cube. You buy this puzzle perfectly solved, and then randomly mix it yourself, (or get someone else to mix it for you) and try and get it back to its perfect solved self again.
This puzzle game can be really difficult some times to solve, and until you have got the technique down, it may take you a long time to solve it and return it to its matched up beginning. There are some genius's however who can solve Rubik's Cubes in a matter of seconds or minutes, I am not that good yet, but with a little ( a lot) of practice, I hope to get quicker.
I bought this in the Gadget Store for £10, however I can see them online for just over £4, so you can get them cheaper if you shop around.
Rubik Cube are suitable for ages 8+, I am 21 and I enjoy playing with mine, I suppose it just depends on interest and what you like to do in your spare time.
Overall I am really glad I bought this little puzzling cube, I enjoy puzzles and challenges, so this is right up my street. It is the kind of thing that I like to sit down and ponder, and I find it quite relaxing, until I meet a dead end and start scrambling it up in frustration. I think I paid too much for my Rubik Cube, but online they are priced well and if you haven't already tried one and like a puzzle, I think that this would be a great buy.
