for my birthday my wife bought me a Rubik's cube Revenge, it is a 4x4, not the sissy model you see to my your left. i have been working on this thing since my birthday which was mid August and have finished one side only to have it totally destroyed while finishing another. the directions are pretty helpful because they give you algorithms to use to solve pieces to the puzzle but that is just the beginning. so i wondered who else out there that reads my blog (the two of you) ever had a Rubik's cube or currently do have a Rubik's cube and do you still play with it or has it sat collecting dust somewhere? let me know!!! oh yeah good luck!!
