So it has been a couple of weeks since we sent out the Rubik's cubes to the lucky winners from the Summer competition, so by now you all should be Rubik's cube geniuses :smileyhappy:  but if a few of you haven’t mastered the dreaded cube then we have found a short clip to help you.

For more inspiration this guy, single handedly completed the Rubik's cube in 14 seconds, now that is dedication

Here in the giffgaff office, we had a Rubik's cube competition for the quickest time to master the Rubik's cube and Kim has come in with 2 minutes followed shortly by Nigel with 6 minutes, incredible timings well done to both, as for the rest of us...well we are still trying :smileyhappy:

 

Let us know your fastest time on completing the Rubik's cube.

 

Enjoy the videos!

2 minutes?! I remember trying one as a kid and I never solved it.

 

I haven't had a go since... I remember thinking they were impossible :smileyhappy:

I can appear to do it in under a minute..I get a Rubix Cube, record myself messing it up, then play it backwards :smileywink:

But Kim took the stickers off

now there are too many tutorials and stuff on youtube, solving it is not as impressive as it used to be.

Thank you for the videos, and I've never completed the Rubik's Cube. lol

I was a nerdy kid and worked out how to solve it myself rather than use instructions. I think I got it down to one minute 30 secs so not too bad

:smileywink:

30 secs is my best time. I used to average well below a minute until I got arthritis :/

 

I can, however, do a 7x7x7 cube :smileyhappy:
