    I think solving the rubiks cube is easier. I onced played with a stinking chess master and it was so bad. Two scenarios: He was definitely stronger than me at chess but his breath and armpit odor was much much stronger.

    Rubil's cube has more combinations than there are forum posts about the number of possible chess positions.

    Solving a Rubik's cube is easy. I can do it in less than five minutes just about every time. Playing a chess master is easier though, since you don't really have to devote any effort to play chess.

    Which of these is harder:

    1. Solving a Rubik's cube blindfold

    2. Beating a chess master blindfold

    Then there is that perplexing problem of why you'd want to solve a Rubik's cube.

    I solve cubes blindfolded regularly, it's really not that hard. It obviously takes much less training than getting good enough at chess to beat a chess master, let alone blindfolded.

    Rubiks cube definately. I can do that in about a minute.

    Once, a long time ago, I beat a Master in a tournament game, but I will never be able to solve a rubik's cube.

    You would if you try... it's not THAT hard.  It's only deceptively hard.

    Rubik's cube can be solved from any position by following a simple algorithm. Once you know the algorithm, it's merely a matter of applying it. 

    The same is not true of beating a chess master.

    Pointless thread.

    As is, the rubiks cube is much harder.

    If you asked the question properly, beating a chess master is much harder.

    Its easier to play a chess master, than solve a cube. You said PLAY, not win!
