(Not a text brainteaser) Speed Solving the Rubik's Cube

  1. Jun 18, 2008 #1
    Who else does it? I can solve the cube in under 30 seconds, but I average around 36 seconds. If anyone else does this, please reply. I want to see how many people are better than me.

    I speed solve, but only using basic methods. My best time is 44 sec and my average is about 55.

    Which method do you use?

    My friend used to speed solve but I don't think he ever got much better than a minute. He used to show off by solving his rubiks cube in less time than it took me to make my next move on the chess board.

    I've never figured out the speed solving method. By the normal 'layer by layer' method I used to be able to solve one in about two minutes I think.

    I use the Freidrich method. I've been solving for about 2 years now.
