Rubik’s picture/super cube
Well, today’s one is not very special(being a 3×3), but was such a great find, it should be shared.
A new girl moved into our office recently and she became interested in my cubes. I lent her a Guanlong. She took it home on Friday and said she would solve it over the weekend.
Lo and behold: she came back on Monday with a solved cube. And was very proud of herself. She ordered a cube for herself and kept hold of the YJ whilst waiting for delivery.
Unfortunately, she bought the cube from eBay and didn’t realise the seller was China based. She waited a LONG time…
My little boy likes trawling through toy boxes in charity shops. Whilst trawling last weekend, one shop had a 3×3 picture cube and a 4×4.
The box was labelled “3 for 99p”, so I thought I would get them for her. The 4×4 was APPALLINGLY bad. But it turned out that, for 33p, this was actually a Rubik’s branded cube (I didn’t really look properly in the shop).
It turns like a Rubik’s cube, but is in good condition and she likes it, so all round a good buy. Even Lightake couldn’t sell you a cube for 33p!!
Here he is scrambled:
Happy Thursday. Counting down the hours until I can get cracking on the 10×10!!
Edit: for our American friends, 33p is equal to about 45cents!
Addendum. More 10×10…
Well, I was right. I seem to have gotten much quicker at finding and placing the pieces. In quite a short space of time, I got another quarter done – it was a long day yesterday, so I didn’t do any more.
I will probably finish in another two sessions. One tonight and one tomorrow. Fingers crossed, all of the pieces will be there….
