Hi, my name’s Eddy and I’ve never solved a Rubik’s Cube. God knows I’ve tried. I’ve spent weekends locked in a cupboard with just me and a cube, missed meals hoping that the pangs of hunger would propel me into a zen like cube solving trance. I’ve even tried doing it with my eyes closed under the misguided notion that if I fiddle with the cube for long enough one day – ONE DAY – I’ll open my eyes and see a completed cube resting in the palm of my hand. Of course, it occurred to me afterwards that I may have already completed it but not opened my eyes at the right point in time. As tempting as it is to look up God’s Algorithm for the Rubik’s Cube, it takes away from the sense of satisfaction I presume one feels after solving the puzzle. Although I’m sure a cash incentive would do wonders for my motivation.
Then along comes the Rubik’s 360. All you need to do is to lock the coloured balls into the corresponding coloured capsules. Sounds easy? I’m sure it’s not. I’ve already cleared a huge gap in my schedule, stocked up on microwave meals and petitioned several well known physicists to repeal the law of gravity (consequences be damned!). I must buy this puzzle. I must beat this puzzle. I must win. Just once please, please let me win.
