About Speedcubing

Speedcubing uses the puzzle game invented in 1974 by Hungarian professor of architecture Ernő Rubik.
The Rubik's Cube took the world by storm and the first competition was held in 1982 in Budapest. Solving the puzzle of a colorful cube, the game player must strategically make a series of manipulations to create the cube's faces being one single, solid color. Sizes of 2 to 5 inch cubes are the most common. A top speed for solving one of the puzzles is just over 10 seconds currently.

Speedcubing is the most prominent activity of the international Rubik's Cube community. Members come together to hold competitions, work to develop new solving methods, and seek to perfect their technique.
