I recently presented a short demonstration of my method of solving the Rubik’s Cube at the end of lunch time in work to a number of people. The quality of video conferences is a little sketchy, so I’ve created a short video for anyone interested to enjoy. Feel free to leave a comment!
And below is a quick summary of what I cover.
- You can do basic manipulations
- You understand the 3 move / 4 move methods of moving a corner piece into place
My steps (you can do your own thing once you understand the concepts):
- Put the corner pieces of first side into place
- Put the corner pieces of the opposite side into place
- Rotate the corner pieces of the opposite side correctly
- Complete 3 edges of one side
- Use the remaining edge of that side to complete the other side
- Get all the unsolved edges into place
- Flip the 2 remaining edges if necessary
Doing one thing followed by the opposite is a cornerstone of cube solving; this allows you to create your own algorithms. Write down your moves so you know what the opposite is; it will become automatic quickly.
