What is the Rubik's Cube Club
We teach all who wish to learn to solve the Rubik's Cube. We also learn faster ways to solve it.
It's important at any age to keep the brain chugging away on new and challenging exercises. Now that I'm in my sixties, close to seventy, it's more important than ever to recharge and, yes, regenerate brain cells. New evidence reported recently in Scientific American:
The Rubik's Cube is a 3-D mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik. Originally called the "Magic Cube", the puzzle was licensed by Rubik to be sold by Ideal Toy Corp. in 1980 and won the German Game of the Year special award for Best Puzzle that year. As of January 2009, 350 million cubes have sold worldwide making it the world's top-selling puzzle game. It is widely considered to be the world's best-selling toy
God's Number is 20
No matter how mixed-up it is, the Rubik’s Cube can be solved in 20 moves or fewer, say a team of researchers who used computer time donated by Google to run complex algorithms to prove it.
That means all the 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 positions of the Cube require no more than 20 steps to get the Cube in shape.
