hey guys any of you done the stress releaver stress builder actually,,i've had about 4 or five Rubik's cubes since they came out but never been able to solve it,well i can now doit and wow!!! what a great felling,

i just bought it like two weeks ago,my brother inlaw was my inspiration to buy it again and give it another try,he can solve his in about two minutes,i am still a begginer so im not going to say how long it takes me but is in the 10 minutes or half an hour,im just learnig so i have to read some notes i made,

if you read the booklet that comes with the Rubik's cube,you can actually solve it,just takes alitle geting used to the instructions but it does work,i never actually thought i would be able to solve it,it is great though,i've spent hours at first but now it is actually easy,

now i just need to memorise the algorithms and start on some speed solving,anyway just wanted to hear from some of you that have done it,i really like this thing it is great

yeah,thats the one thing i dont like about the Rubik's,i think they make a diferent brand that dont have the stickers,i'll be alright with the Rubik's,you could put your own stickers but the cube it self is cheap,i would just buy a new one,

they now make bigger ones,like a 4x4x4, a 5x5x5, a 10x10x10 and so on,im fine with the 3x3x3,i might get a 5x5x5 later,i dont think i need a bigger one than the 5x5x5,but for now i'll enjoy the 3x3x3

Once you can do the 3x3x3 then next small step harder is one with pictures on the face. With the standard colored stickers it doesn't matter if the center square is rotated - with the pictures it then matters.

There are several really good vids on youtube on how to solve it. I can do it in about 2-3 minutes using memorized algorithums. There are also some really depressing vids on their of people doing it one handed in under 20 seconds!

yup,i envy some of them that can solve it in less than 8 seconds two handed of corse,and well,one handed as well as blindfolded,now thats impressive,i have already timed my self a few times and the best i could do is 4 minutes,im sure i'll continue to get better as i keep practicing but i think being able to solve it is still good

Using the included algorithms I can solve it consistently in under two minutes, considering how many algorithms you have to remember it isn't bad. However if you want to remember hundreds of algorithms and you practice a lot it is relatively easy to solve in under a minute. But ever since I got my sim the cube has taken a back seat to it, so my times won't get any better.

you're good bro.im sure you could probably do better if you kept trying to beat your own time,as i said,i've only had my 3x3x3 for about two and now going on three weeks,

i have seen a bunch of vids on youtube with many diferent ways to solve it,i dont think i can memorise so many algorithms but im sure some are easier and faster than others

trilerian
the included algorithms are very good but not the best ones,i have found better ways to solve,i am geting faster as i keep on playing,

the included algorithms are basic,more or less for begginers like me
you're right there is a bunch of diferent ones but i dont think i can memorise all of them with out cofusing my self,i have shosen the best ones that work for me now,im sure i'll probably find better algorithms as i go
