What is SexyToad talking about? Well for the people that have seen my earlier topic, you'll know that I like to do Rubiks cube. Well I'm a pro at 3x3 so I thought its time to level up! I'm thinking about buying a 4x4. Going up one level but then I thought. Go hard or go home! I could just skip 4x4 and go directly to 5x5, or do a bigger skip and go to 6x6! I'm not going to skip to 7x7 yet. That thing is a beast. So what do you guys think I should do? 4x4 5x5 6x6 and 7x7 AKA: "The Beast."

Wait... they really have Rubik's Cubes bigger than the normal ones?

Agreed, just don't post about it please

The 7X7 is insane.

Start with 4 x 4. Even that is going to be many times more complicated than 3 x 3.

Whoa, holy crap! Didn't even know they made bigger ones!
 
It's hard to tell from the pictures, but are the individual cubes the same size in the larger ones? I thought maybe they'd be scaled down, otherwise wouldn't the 6x6 and 7x7 require giant hands to use?  Also, the 7x7 is so big it's bulging and about to explode, or about to collapse under it's own gravity >_>

Go for the 4x4 first, it's way harder than the 5x5. The 5x5 is more similar to a 3x3 than the 4x4, so go for the 4x4 for more a challenge. And be prepared to get into a situation where it looks like you fucked up; you haven't, but it sure looks like it.

@beard_of_zeus: The cubes are smaller, yes, otherwise it would be way too heavy to manage.

Pussies. Come back to me when you manage to solve a Mengel's Cube.

#14 Posted by RPGee (759 posts) -

@Video_Game_King: You know, Googling 'Mengel's Cube' has not only not helped me figure out what you mean, but confused me as to whether you're trying to make a very off-colour joke.

This cannot be emphasised enough. Seriosuly if you need help I can pm you some porn, jesus christ.

@RPGee:

More an obscure math joke.

#17 Posted by RPGee (759 posts) -

@Video_Game_King:

I see, not so off-colour then. What I got mostly spoke about Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor/experimentalist, which was quite the shock.

I can do 3x3, 4x4, and 5x5. The odd numbered ones are a little easier than the even ones because there is always the middle piece on each side. I had a friend on the bus in high school that was amazing at rubix cubes, he could do 2x2 (not as easy as it sounds) all the way up to 7x7 and like a dodecahedron or something in less than like 5-10 minutes.

@RPGee:

Except it wouldn't make a lot of sense. Wouldn't a Nazi Rubik's Cube be all Aryan white?

Rubik's Tesseract or GTFO

Go with 4x4, it's the classic.

#22 Posted by RPGee (759 posts) -

@Video_Game_King:

I can't imagine Nazis being particularly big fans of the concept in the first place. A Nazi Rubik's Cube sounds like it can only have one side, and that all other sides are problematic to say the least.

5x5, after you go bigger than that they start looking kinda dumb. 5x5 looks nice.

#24 Posted by Arkasai (701 posts) -

Aren't the even numbered (4x4, 6x6 etc) much harder because you don't have that center column?

#25 Edited by stalefishies (330 posts) -

4x4 isn't harder than a 5x5 really; there's only two extra algorithms you have to know and one of them is incredibly straightforward anyway. It's not enough to make up for the fact that a 5x5 is more complicated due to just having more things to think about. I'd get a 4x4 first just to get used to the extra steps involved in the larger cubes, but from 4x4 up it's all pretty much the same thing but you have to do more of it.

Rubiks cubes literally give me nightmares, and I'm not kidding. I am just going to forget I saw these rather than risk being scared of them all day.

The 4x4 is such a versatile piece of wood.
