Know what I remember reading? Tony G was some kind of Rubik’s cube prodigy. Like a world champ at age 9 or something.

That’s a sweet collection.

An old classmate wrote his thesis about the group of moves that can be made on a 3x3 cube.

He is a total wizard at solving them... me not so much.

Son is. Did his first competition a couple months before the world closed down. He does the 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, pyraminx, megaminx, ghost, QiYi six spot, z twist, 2x2x3, phoenix megaminx, Fisher Cube, and a few others. I'll see if I can get a pic tomorrow.

What're your favorites amongst the ones in the pic?

My favorite one to solve is the dodecahedron.

The only one I have not been able to solve yet is this pesky bastard. It has off-centered axes that I haven't figured out how to deal with yet.

Yeah. We have four of five of them around the table. Doesn't help one of our players is a former world champ in cubing... So there is always some 3x3s and 6x6s at the table constantly....

I had the 3x3, piramid, the links, and Rubic's snake. Snake got the most use by far because it was a great "idle mind" time waster. The 3x3 cube was the best to solve.

Haven't touched any of them in over 30 years. :unsure:

My 13 year old sent me a pic of his collection... There's a few he can't solve yet, but most of them he can.

For the record, I can solve a3x3 but only if I talk out the instructions as I go along. "Ok, up right prime down left front prime" etc.
