  • @Mike Boyd, the 22x22x22 Rubik’s cube is insanely huge and is truly amazing to look at, but have you seen the 33x33x33 Rubik’s cube yet? If not, you should go check that one out because honestly, it makes the 22x22x22 seem puny against the 33x33x33 cube.

  • I personally wouldn't recommend following a single tutorial. After getting pretty fast at the rubiks cube, I noticed that a lot of the algorithms I was using were not the most efficient, some of which had regrips that could be eliminated through the use of a better algorithm. If anyone is planning on learning to solve the 3x3, I would recommend getting hang of the basics, notation, finger tricks, and learn to recognise a good algorithm vs a bad one. This way you will at least save some time on practise and memorising as you will immediately be able to choose the best algorithms for you, instead of trying to memorise algorithms that may not be to your liking. For example, if you're left handed or you perform some moves faster than others no matter how much you practise.

  • You don't use full CFOP, you use BEGINNER CFOP as full CFOP u do cross super efficient and F2L way more efficient AND you will do ONLY ONE algorithm to solve OLL and another alg to solve PLL. And last but not least you can learn more algs like ZBLL which solves the WHOLE LAST LAYER with ONE ALG and VLS which skips OLL and KEYHOLE and PSEUDOSLOTTING and many more. Ik this because I use the method and also magnetic cubes are WAYY better and also tentioning and LUBE.
