Wow, I just love playing the rubix cube. I can complete the cube but not in a very very fast way. I am happy just by completing the puzzle. Just have patience. I, myself am very frustrated at first I ended up having a headache after trying to learn. You will learn the moves, I am sure of that and then you'll say that solving it has never been so easy.

rubik's cube - a sample of rubik's cube
Oh I love rubik's cube and I can solve the puzzle too! I've learned to solve it when I was still in college. I've had many cubes already and that game had faded several years back but now it is a fad again so I bought another cube again. I can solve it within 2mins. I haven't tried solving it really fast but I think I can. I'm just not too serious about doing it. You have to put oil or petroleum gelly on the cube to make it smooth moving. You don't really have to memorize the algorithyms but rather learn the logic how the cube moves. If you only memorize the steps and forget one, you have to redo it again from the start until you get the right positions of the color. Thats what I have observed how teenagers solve it now. If you know the logic then you can solve the cube with fewer algos or steps. Goodluck!
