Rubik's Cube: UK Speedcubing Championship 2017

A completed Rubik's Cube is a wonderful sight. This is probably the one and only time I will see ours like this!

Completed Rubik's Cube

 If you are a fan of Rubik's puzzles then you will be interested to know that this years UK Speedcubing Championship takes place in Stevenage between 27th and 29th of October. You can find out more details at the UK Cube Association.

John Adams, makers of the Rubik's cube, sent us one of the new design 3x3 cubes. If like me as a child you may have carefully peeled off the stickers and replaced them so you could complete the cube. you may be disappointed. (OK, I am hoping that this was quite a normal thing to do and all you readers aren't going to look down at me now.) The new cube has tough tiles with new super durable bonded solid plastic tiles. So wave goodbye to cheating!

There is also a new mechanism, meaning that the twirls and turns are smoother, faster and stronger than ever. Whilst my younger two boys are happier with their Rubik's Junior puzzles, my 10 year old is enjoying trying to solve the 3x3 Rubik's cube. It has an aged guide of 8+. I have so far been unsucessful. Big man is showing more promise and can easily complete a couple of sides. I don't think we will be making the UK Speedcubing Championship this year, but who knows in years to come.....

Rubik's have a whole range of puzzles and you can find out more by visiting the John Adams Website.

Are you a fan of the Rubik's Cube? Did you have an old style one with stickers? If so, did you cheat a little too?

There is still time to enter my Rubik's Junior giveaway!
