One of the world’s greatest mysteries lies in solving a Rubik’s Cube. Warning, this pseudo-guide is not for the faint of heart. I will now instruct the world on how to solve a Rubik’s Cube by sharing a collection of instructions that can explain it 100x better than I ever could. Either way, this elusive mystery just hit a dead end… or your masterful fingers.

So you must be asking yourself, “How the heck do I solve that twisty-turny monstrosity?” OK, maybe you didn’t ask yourself that, but I sure did. And I struggled for 5 whole minutes trying to figure it out till I realized the internet exists. It’s the internet today that makes the world go round. It’s a place to share and cultivate ideas. But if anyone in real life asks you how you solved the Rubik’s Cube, tell them you figured it out yourself. Forget Youtube and forget Google. YOU’RE THE ALL-STAR!

All jokes aside, let’s show that Rubik’s Cube who’s boss! Here are a list of excellent guides that will teach you.

And now here’s my summed up experience:

  • 1: Find the green center square.
  • 2: Make a green cross.
  • 3: Make the green bottom.
  • 4: Make the middle row match.
  • 5: Make the blue cross.
  • 6: Find the corner blues.
  • 7: Make the rubik’s cube perfect.

To be honest, I learned how to solve a Rubik’s Cube from Youtube. Here is the instructional video with the algorithms used. Learn and memorize them well, for they will save your life.

Happy learning! Rubik’s Cubes are neat little devices that you can use to impress your friends. They’ll be shocked and in awe! So what are you waiting for? Get cracking!

If you don’t own a rubik’s cube, they’re available on eBay and Amazon. You can also purchase them in-store at your local hobby shop.

Due to the need to turn the deck face up at the start, it’s a rare occasion when it can be used in preference for other styles of pass, but it’s almost tailor-made for use in a sequence of Cavorting Aces…
