Built for speed. This one can time how fast you solve it.
Scramble the cube then press the built in stopwatch and see how your time stacks up against the speedcubers! So much easier than online apps or an external stopwatch.
The stop watch does only go to single minutes though so the challenge is to solve the 3x3x3 Cube in under 9 minutes, 59 seconds, 99/100ths of a second to be exact. You might need some practice first before you start racing.
Buy one for everyone to enjoy a race with friends and family.
Full function instructions come with the puzzle. You can set a buzzer to count you down to start and even set it to play a warning tone every 10 seconds when you’re solving…. no pressure!
How to solve the cube? How long will it take to learn?
There’s so many theories, so many websites, so many YouTube videos. Seems like there’s more advice out there than cubes.
If you follow a step by step manual or tutorial it usually takes about 2 hours to get through solving the cube. To really understand how to do you can double that. And then you can start seeing how fast you can do it on your own.
So what are the odds of fluking it?
Little to none!
In July 2010 researchers found that the Rubik’s Cube can be solved in 20 moves or less from any mixed up state and they used powerful computers at Google to prove it. They dubbed 20 as “Gods number”.
There’s probably some mathematical formula to calculate the odds of unintentionally making these 20 moves in the exact order required to solve the cube but I bet those odds are pretty small. So solving the cube by chance is definitely not impossible, but it seems like it would be very much a long shot!
As for books about solving the Rubik’s Cube. We do at times have some Second-hand copies of various original Solution Books for sale on our Puzzle Books page.
Timer: 2 batteries are already pre-loaded into the cube and ready to go. Just hold the button down for 2 seconds and it will come on and you can press again to start timing. Instructions for this are on the bottom of the packaging. Once you’ve finished using it will turn off automatically in 90 seconds.
There are also 2 spare batteries and a screwdriver included to replace those batteries as needed.
