Two of my many cubes. Mahoney tries out the 2x2, while I tackle the 3x3. Using the petrus method, I solved this one in about 35 seconds.

Mahoney is still working on the 2x2. He just can't figure it out. Notice his worried look. He threw it shortly after this photo was taken. He couldn't take the pressure.

nice shot...for some reason i remember my college roommate saying the ones with even numbers were more difficult. this true?

Dj says:
I believe that's right, because the even number cubes don't have a center square on the sides. The center square never moves.

Furricane says:
@jason this is true. Very true. Even numbered ones don't have a "center" piece on each side, and so you have to usually deal with parity. Parity is a pain in the arse.

I hope Mahoney isn't blind, that might make the whole thing a little more difficult.
