My 2010 Easy Way to Complete and Conquer the Rubik's Cube...

Before we start, it's worth remembering the centre/centre pieces 6 in total, all different colours, never move position - they are part of the cube structure...

Practice completing the top layer of reds before moving on with this, so you can complete the top layer in say 2 mins, otherwise as simple as this is compared to other formulas, it will be too hard to get your head around.

So this formula is designed for people who have practiced enough to be able to complete the first layer, but have not been able to complete the whole Rubik's Cube - so I'll move straight onto the second row...

R = Right - F = Front - C = Centre - Bot = Bottom - T = Top

Rubik's Cube 1st Move Section.

TOP

BOTTOM

Cube front face shown here, with the completed red layer at the top.

Keep your completed red face at the top. This is any one of your side faces we are looking at, which we will call the 'front face'.

This move will be useful in completing the centre layer, just got to practice it, so the piece goes in the right way, but this move will show you how to put it in.

So now you will have to remove top centre red, at the front as we look at it and put in the piece ready, that you require to go in position A... This piece has to match in colour with the front centre, and the the right centre colour pieces.

Then complete the following...

You should be able to put all the pieces in now and complete the middle layer - just put those 4 top reds back in so you can see how far you've got.

Rubik's Cube 2nd Move Section.

TOP

BOTTOM

Cube side face shown here, with the completed red layer at the top.

With this move we are aiming to get the 4 bottom corners in their correct places - it doesn't matter yet if all orange corner faces don't face the bottom, we will rotate these in the following section.

So we need all 4 corners in the same as the top - white/green/red in the same order below white/green/orange - then looking clockwise, yellow/green/orange - yellow/blue/orange - white/blue/orange - same as they are at the top.

The move sequence below swaps the two front corner pieces, as you are looking at it, with red layer on top - pieces left to right - right to left on the orange 'bottom layer' will swap positions... With this information you should be able to get all 4 corners same colour matching as the top corners.

So with the red layer at the top, and the 2 lower corners you need to swap facing you, complete the following - then again if you need to.

When all 4 corners are in their correct places, move onto the next section - we will rotate them to get all orange faces to the bottom face.

And yes I know, its knocked some of your middle row pieces out - you'll soon put those back in - with practice you will be able to put the 8 corners in place first, then the middle row - but this way is easier to learn, layer by layer.

Rubik's Cube 3rd Move Section.

Now we need the cube turning over - reds underneath.

When here, you should have 2 layers completed, with 4 orange corner pieces in the correct place, but requiring rotating... So this section now is for rotating the 4 orange corners so they match the centre orange.

The image above is to show the 'single orange' we are looking for.

As the cube's now over at an angle so you can see the bottom layer face, to view it - so the orange layer is at the top - so you see the 'centre orange' waiting for 'corner' company / team mates.

We're looking for 'one orange' in a corner on it's own, or 4 of course - so do the move listed below as many times from different sides as you need to 'reds underneath' - until you have a single - 'just one' - corner orange matching with the centre orange.

Starting like this with the cube orange centre piece face turned up towards you, so you're looking at it... This image is showing the 'single' corner orange we are looking to get in place.

So this move flips the 4 corners until all orange edges appear. This move might have to be completed several times until all 4 corners are correct - they will all suddenly drop in place.

Keep repeating until you have one corner orange in place, then repeat again with orange to the left as explained.

As all 4 oranges appear correct - just go back and tidy the top and centre rows up - and stop to smile and appreciate as you complete each section - no rush, enjoy the challenge.

Rubik's Cube 4th Move Section.

Red layer at the top again - corners will stay in place, so ignore those.

Congratulations if you've now completed it!!!! The experts will complete the cube with different sequences than this, but the moves are complicated to most people - so I offer you another, easier way to complete it.

Once you get the hang of it, you will be able to put all 8 corner pieces in first, then the centre row, then top reds, then bottom layer - but not yet, practice it as here first - and well done, if it's done, regards Steve...
