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

    which do you think is harder? Facing a chess master (like Bobby Fisher, Kasparov, Karpov, etc) or facing the eight wonder of the world, the rubik's cube.

    If you know the patterns, the cube is by far easier. It doesn't take years to learn them either like chess does.

    Yeah, you can master the cube in a day.  Mastering chess is impossible for some and takes years of study and practice for anyone who can.

    Playing a chess master is so easy anyone can do it, I think you mean beating a chess master.

    playing a master, but you can't master the rubix cube in a day, it takes about a week.

    You can look up the answer to solving a Rubik's Cube, and have it done in a day. I don't doubt the answer can also be memorized in a day too. I know it didn't take me long when i found answers that i could understand.

    Yeah, a 3x3 cube can be mastered in a day or two, far easier than beating a master level chess player.  Something like a 5x5 cube or blindfold cubing within a time limit could be a contender though.

    Well, I've played lots of masters...but I've never solved the Rubik's cuke.

    I learned how to solve the cube in half an hour. You can learn the rules of chess probably a little faster than that. Going by that, playing a master is easier.

    Seriously though, it's a ridiculous comparison.

    Worst notation ever. Counterclockwise moves should be notated with an apostrophe, double turns with a 2. I guess you used that 'pogobat' guy's tutorial on youtube..?
