Something a bit different from me this time. After a recent conversation with @garritfra about solving a Rubik’s Cube, here’s a guide on how I do it.

This even features videos this time around…only of my hands and voice though! 😂

@kev @garritfra Looks very similar to the method I'm using. I've occasionally tried looking at F2L tutorials, but can't find one that makes any sense to me... I think if I could understand that technique, maybe I'd save a little time just by dealing with any (luckily) conveniently oriented pairs - and falling back to the beginners method for the rest because I don't have the inclination to learn any complicated algorithms! 😂

@mootParadox @garritfra honestly, I haven’t even bothered researching any other algorithms. This works, and I enjoy the process of easily solving it. I’m not interested in times, I just fiddle with it.

I bought a 4x4 recently, but haven’t got around to learning that yet.

@kev @garritfra Must admit that I lost interest in the 4x4 as soon as I discovered edge parity! 🤣
