Which is harder: Playing a chess master or solving a rubik's cube

    It's just me. I'm not the guy you'd see solving a Rubik's cube all day. Never really tried and won't try to learn.

    To show how bad I am, I can't even solve one side.

    Are you guys interested in football? You two seem to be pretty good at throwing random stuff.

    Better doing that than going all Rubik on everybody.

    Still, your dog appears to be having the most fun I've ever seen anybody have with that thing.

    The thing does seem to be rather popular in the animal kingdom though:

    My (twin) brother solved a rubix cube except for two corners from scratch without help multiple times. I guarantee that it is much harder to beat a chess master.

    Considering I've never managed either legitimately, I do find it note worthy that, it is much easier to take apart a Rubik's Cube, than a chess master, in order to get them in the desried position...

    I solved the Rubik's cube on a 3 day holliday weekend.  Armed with a yellow pad, I drew diagrams.  I was able to to 2 levels when I started.  My basis for solving the cube went like this.  I would move a piece from the bottom level to the top level noting the moves I made.  I then made another series of moves that put the piece from the top level back on the bottom level but scrambled the pieces in the top 2 levels (the routine had all of the pieces in the top 2 level but scrambled)   I then rotated the bottom level and reversed the series of moves I had made.  This put the top two levels back in position.  I then noted how this affected the bottom level.  I then figured out a solution to the cube using repeatedly using the routine  and reverse routine.  It wasn't very efficient solution but it worked.  My wife was very unhappy that I had spent the Holiday working on the cube.  I solved the cube without referring to any out side sources.   I could never come close to mastering chess in a lifetime even with consulting books and other sources.  There is no question that solving the Rubic's cube is much easier than mastering chess.

    *Playing* a master is far easier than *solving* any puzzle.

     

    Now, beating a chess master who's sober. That's exponentially more difficult than solving a rubik's cube.
