What puzzle should i get next?

Postby PhoeniXCuberV1 » Thu Apr 05, 2012 12:47 pm

Hey guys, I can solve the 3x3x3 Rubiks cube in about 1 minute 14 (Personal Best) and I was wondering what to get next?
The Pyramix?
The 4x4x4?
or something easier. :D

My friend has the megamix but that looks to difficult any help :)

I would suggest a 4x4x4; I think it's a common next step up. Some of the solving approaches from the 3x3x3 work for it, but not all of them. You will have to use some different strategies to solve it.

Also, by just turning the inner layers, you can use it as a 2x2x2. If you get a 4x4x4, try solving it as a 2x2x2 first.

I think it's easy to solve. When I got one, I scrambled and solved it in the same day. Though I didn't completely know how I did it then, about two weeks later I had figured it out. Also, there are methods for solving the Pyraminx that don't use any algorithms. I think this shows that it is easier to solve than a 3x3x3. (Most methods for the 3x3x3 use algorithms.) It is different than NxNxN puzzles though.
