My favorite hobby is collecting and solving many different types of Rubik’s Cubes. I’ve been collecting and cubing for almost a year now. My hardest puzzle that I am trying to solve right now is the Megaminx (it is a 12-faced 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube). I imagine, though, that the Yottaminx, which is equivalent to 15x15x15, (created by Matt Bahner) is the hardest puzzle in the world.

The cubes I have learned to solve are the Pyraminx, the Gear Cube, Rubik’s Twist, 2x2, 1x1 and, of course, the 3x3. In the future, I hope that I will be able to obtain more Rubik’s Cubes for my collection and that I will be able to solve each and every one of them!

For more information on the Rubik’s Cubes and all of the speed cubing world record holders, you should Google the names Feliks Zemdegs and Erno Rubik. Feliks is the person with the most world records in speed cubing. Erno is the inventor of the very first Rubik’s Cube.

I hope that this article has inspired you to go out and buy your own Rubik’s Cube and try to solve it. That’s what I did, and look where I am today.
