FR MIX - A different 3x3 method 

4 Aug 2023 • Published

This 3x3 puzzle cube tutorial video introduces a different method of solving the puzzle. It mixes 2 of the popular 3x3 puzzle cube solving methods, i.e. the Fridrich and the Roux methods.

The Fridrich method is used to solve up to the first 2 layers whereas the Roux method is used to solve the last layer of the puzzle cube.

The aim of this method is not for speed cubing. Rather, it allows the cuber to be able to solve a 3x3 puzzle cube leisurely without the need to memorize many algorithms.

First Published Tutorial video

11 Mar 2023 • Published

I have published my first tutorial video on 11 March 2023. The topic was on how to solve a 3x3x3 puzzle cube in 7 steps using fixed moves. The puzzle cube solving method taught in this tutorial does not need cubers to learn any algorithm in order to solve a 3x3x3 puzzle cube. This method is good for beginners who had just started cubing before progressing to more advanced methods.
