    Can anybody do these, and if so how long does it take you? I have one and it's impossible, i have it so it's done except the middle square is the wrong colour on 4 of the 6 faces, but if i move it things get even worse, argh!

    My step-mums a maths teacher and can do them in about an hour if she tries, i'll have to get her to teach me - they're so frustrating!
    i cant do them but my mum is constantly doing them!!

    In the past my record was 6 minutes. But I've forgotten since then!

    I've always wanted to try to complete one, but I've never come across one.

    I did one once in under 2 minutes. But my average is about 3 and a half minutes.

    I taught half of my house at uni last year how to do them. It will certainly be interesting to see if they still remember this year.

    we timed the maths teacher i had last year at under 3 minutes :eek:
    there must be some kind of set way to doing it because he hardly looked at it while doing it... what a nutter

    If you still want to do it try this site - it gives you pretty easy to understand instructions http://jjorg.chem.unc.edu/personal/m...y3x3/index.htm It starts the same way I used to do it, but it's more complicated as I never used to have to spot the different patterns to get the bottom corners in place.
