The Ultimate Brainteaser: Mini Rubik’s Cube
Invented in 1934 by a Hungarian sculpture and professor of architecture, Erno Rubik, the Rubik’s cube didn’t reach its height of mainstream popularity until the 1980s. More than 350 million cubes have been sold worldwide, confirming it as the world’s top-selling puzzle game.
Test Your Skills
A traditional Rubik’s Cube as well as our mini Rubik’s cube is covered by nine stickers on all six of its faces. Each sticker is either white, red, blue, orange, green or yellow. To solve it, you must bring all the squares of the same color to one face of the cube, and replicate this for all six colors on all six faces. There are 43 quintillion (43,000,000,000,000,000,000) possible combinations, only one of these being the right one. Erno Rubik, the inventor, even took a month to solve his own puzzle, using it as part of his teaching course. It helped students understand spatial relationships by not only making it fun, but making it challenging.

The Rubik’s cube is an open-ended, three-dimensional puzzle that is both straightforward and honest; there are no tricks to it - no way to cheat.

The only requirement is concentration, good focus and a whole lot of determination to crack the puzzle. Luck is entirely out of the equation, and solving it relies strongly on the art of observing patterns. Every time a Rubik’s cube is picked up, you will arrive at its solution in a different way.
