Rubik's Cube - shaping up for brilliant brainteaster
26 March 2016
Make sure you buy an official Rubik's Cube and you won't be disappointed. I originally shelled out on a cheapo £2.49 imitation off that popular online auction site and it literally exploded into pieces once I twisted it and it got a little stuck on a side.
After that incident, I decided to buy an official one from Amazon and it is great. Feel is much more sturdy and I have randomised and completed it around 10 times now without any issues. Being a more modern version, there are no stickers which make up the colours. It is coloured plastic instead which makes it much more durable and less likely to lose a colour when the adhesive on the old school stickers go on the old version I had as a kid.
It comes with a little black plastic triangle stand, in case you want to store it on a little "holder" on one of its corner edges. Take it or leave it.
Overall, this is a great product, easy smooth twisting and brings back the nostalgia of using one as a paperweight as a kid. Now, it's an actual puzzle that can be solved. Good brainteaser.
