I've been sat for hours!!!! How the bloody hell do you solve these???? My son is expecting me to have mastered this by morning. I can't even make sense of it with Google. Aibu to beg someone to make this easy for meeeee

I watched a YouTube video and that helped me! Although I had to watch it multiple times...

I solved mine in the 1980's by removing and replacing the stickers into the right positions. wink

When they first came out I knew the 'formula' and could do them really quickly. Can't remember it now though sorry!

Patriciathestripper1 Sat 28-Jan-17 20:56:33

Yes I did it! What you do is drink several glasse of wine then get a nail file and prize the coloured stickers off and stick them back in the right order grin

Funnily enough the only suggestion I've had so far is from a friend on her second bottle of wine telling me to take the stickers off, unfortunately there not stickers on it so it's not even an option

HermioneJeanGranger Sat 28-Jan-17 21:02:57

I used to take them apart and re-build them grin

There's a formula (I don't know it), and I expect google and you tube will help

TheNewSchmoo Sat 28-Jan-17 21:05:31

Take the middle one on a side edge out.... They then all come out and you can stick them back in the right place

2 glasses of wine in.....

If you post it to me I'll do it for you <smug>

onmybroomstick Sat 28-Jan-17 21:06:31

Google baffled me. I'm going to try YouTube. I'm going to have to take it apart aren't I

The top video (and parts 2&3) will teach you all you need to know, check the comments too for the list of algorithms.

Is it a new one? I always fear old ones I haven't seen put right incase someone has moved some of the blocks

HSMMaCM Sat 28-Jan-17 21:19:29

It doesn't matter if someone's moved some blocks. It'll still work

onmybroomstick Sat 28-Jan-17 21:22:54

Even YouTube isn't making it easy. What is wrong with me 😳

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Sat 28-Jan-17 21:25:04

i used to be able to do them too!

I might get one and see if it all comes flooding back! grin

Watch this week's Death in Paradise!

AshesandDust Sat 28-Jan-17 21:28:24

Stage 3 just isn't happening

PinkSwimGoggles Sat 28-Jan-17 21:49:24

give it dc in the morning to sort by tomorrow evening?

Chrysanthemum5 Sat 28-Jan-17 21:49:41

DS joined a club at school for Rubik cube (he's very cool 😀) and they gave him a formula to follow which solves it every time. Apparently it hinges on getting the white cross? YouTube must have tutorials.

onmybroomstick Sat 28-Jan-17 21:53:19

I get the cross and then the whole thing goes to bloody pot. I'm getting increasingly more frustrated at the damn thing angry what have my Saturday nights become

cookieswirls Sat 28-Jan-17 21:57:51

There is the solution pdf online. I learnt from that it's really easy once you know how

Thingmcthingyface Sat 28-Jan-17 21:59:13

Solution PDF is the way forwards! Takes about 10 mins with that!
