Cheat, by peeling the stickers off?
Apparently they're easy to solve once you know how to do so, but I've never completed more than one side of the cube. I'd like to know if you actually get a sense of satisfaction from completing one, or whether it's all a bit of an anticlimax.

How Do You Solve A Rubik's Cube? I guess this takes most of the fun out of it, but there's a good site here that tells you how to do it. There's a certain algorithm involved, so once you've got that sussed, you'll know how to do it every time.

Is It Cheating If You Research How To Solve A Rubik's Cube? It's not cheating as such, but I expect it would take the fun - or sense of satisfaction - out of it. A Rubik's Cube is a puzzle, and reading about how to solve it is a bit like looking up cheats or walkthroughs for a computer game.

Peeling the stickers off dosen't count!

Maybe not, but there's some kind of algorithm involved in solving it properly, and that's maths territory. I don't go there if I can help it.

I did the Rubik in the '80s and got it...nearly 30 years later, I didn't get anywhere near..not even with the book...Good fun.

I suggest you start here. It is an very informative video which teaches you step by step together with multiple algorithms required for effortlessly solving the Rubix Cube.

It takes a lot of memorising but is, however, very satisfying in the end.

Go ahead and view part two once you have mastered the algorithms and techniques presented in part one.

Good LUCK!
