I’ve Half-Cracked the Rubik’s Cube

Ever since I’ve a boy I’ve been twisting and turning the Rubik’s cube. As a kid, it took me a few weeks to understand how the cube works and managed to solve one of the six sides of the cube. Then after a break of a few years, managed to solve one side plus one line. And now after a decade and a half, I’ve re-picked the infamous cube to give it one final shot and crack the damn thing.

Why? Well, my daughter is growing up and by the time she’s 2 or 3 I would have liked to have solved it on my own so that I can guide her through the thought process of solving the cube herself. Well friends this is the closest I have come so far. I have solved one side, one line and almost solved the second line. As you can see, it’s one or two pieces in the second line that I’m not able to have in place without disturbing the other pieces. Well I’m still at it, watch this space for future updates.
