Boog has been out camping for 2 days with his class. Boy, are we excited that he's coming today!!
He's been into the 2x2 Rubik's cube lately and since we were missing him, Shoo decided it'd be great to surprise him with a solved 3x3 cube.
So, last afternoon, we picked up a 3x3 and started our journey with some easy-to-follow visuals at https://www.youcandothecube.com/solve-it/3-x-3-solution. The problem is our cube just wouldn't cooperate! I have to admit, our initial challenge was more about who could go longer without wondering out loud if this cube had been tampered with!!
But bit by bit, we got familiar with the cube and its nature. Finally, with one other set of instructions at https://ruwix.com/the-rubiks-cube/how-to-solve-the-rubiks-cube-beginners-method/step-5-swap-yellow-edges/, I managed to solve the Rube a bit before midnight!!
Shoo has packed it in his backpack today to surprise Boog. Let's see how it goes. Our guess is he's going to say, "Seriously! Did you peel off the stickers?"
