How hard can it be?? UPDATE: Annoyingly hard, nearly there though.
Well, the first time i was given a cube, after hours of dedicated puzzle-solving it ended in a surreptitious peeling off of stickers. I've got another one recently and have been trying to crack it once and for all. Unsuccessfully, in fact it has been driving me mad.
If you really want to learn how to solve the Rubik, then check out this step by step solver from Casey C. at the Oregon Institute of Technology. Basically, you're solving a mathematical problem, so all you need to do is follow the steps and you'll solve the mystery that is the Rubik's Cube... It is still easier said than done, but i'm alot closer now.
