Fast!

The X-Man Bell is a really fast Pyraminx. Instead of using ball bearings to create hard “clicks” at the end of a move, this puzzle uses magnets. This allows you to get a good flow in the algorithms at the same time as the puzzle always settles in place for the next series of moves. Note that for a beginner it can feel a bit sloppy due to the speed and that it cuts corners well. But you will probably appreciate how soft and smooth it turns!

Easy puzzles

Sometimes it can be difficult to determine from a picture how difficult a puzzle is. Below are some recommendations for those looking for easy puzzles. All the cubes below are easier to solve than a Rubik’s cube (3×3). Note that these do not include Pyraminx and Skewb, which are also a slightly easier puzzles.

Ivy Cube

For the beginner

The Ivy Cube suits you who have never solved a cube before and don’t really want to tackle a Rubik’s cube just yet. We believe that most people can solve an Ivy cube without the use of a guide – if you just sit and figure it out and try your way.

Qiyi 223

Easier than it looks

The Qiyi 223 is, as the name reveals, a 2x2x3 cube. It has a small number of pieces, but can be a bit trickier than it looks. Oddly enough, it is easier than a regular 2×2 cube and thus makes it onto this list.

3x3x1 Fidget Spinner

Puzzle and toy

This is a fidget spinner and a puzzle in one. The puzzle changes shape when you turn it, which makes it extra fun to fiddle with. However, this does not mean extra difficulty, on the contrary, it makes it easier to solve.

YJ Rainbow Ball

Something different

The YJ Rainbow ball is a slightly different puzzle. Here, you are not twisting different layers. Instead, you must move balls around to the correct position. Here it is important to match the right ball with the right hole. Yellow ball inside yellow circle means that part is solved. When all the balls match their circle, the puzzle is solved. The puzzle is not that difficult, so you can solve it without a guide.

Medium difficulty puzzles

Here are recommendations for those of you looking for moderately difficult puzzles. These are on par with or slightly more difficult than the classic Rubik’s cube (3×3), but still not too difficult. Note that this category does not contain Megaminx and 4×4 although they would fit in here, as they have their own categories.

2x3x3

Qiyi 233 - 3x3x2

Harder than it looks

At first glance, you might think that this can be solved like the first two layers of a regular 3×3, but this is not the case. The fact that the top layer is missing actually makes it more difficult in some aspects and here you can’t use the algorithms you learned for the 3×3 cube.

Mirror Blocks

A classic

Mirror Blocks are a classic and one of the more common cubes to transition to from a 3×3. This is basically a 3×3, but here you work with shape instead of color. You can use the algorithms you already learned to solve a 3×3.

8.99 

To the product

Fisher cube

A shapeshifter

Just like the Mirror Blocks, a Fisher cube is a puzzle that changes shape when you turn it. The puzzle is quite similar to the classic 3×3 cube but has a diagonal axis that causes the pieces to take a different shape. The puzzle is solved quite like a 3×3, but with a twist.

YJ 3×3 Blind Cube

YJ 3x3 Blind cube

Something different

If you want a completely new challenge, perhaps putting on a blindfold is enough? On this cube, all stickers on each side have a unique pattern in addition to their color. This way you can first memorize what the six different patterns look like, and then try to solve the cube without looking or inspecting. Not only are you not allowed to check, but you will also notice how difficult it is to use your usual methods and algorithms when the pieces and impressions no longer feel obvious.

Difficult puzzles

Sometimes it can be difficult to determine from a picture how difficult a puzzle is. Below are some recommendations for those looking for difficult puzzles. The puzzles below are all much more difficult than a Rubik’s Cube.

Square-1

YJ MGC Square-1

Harder than it looks

A square-1 does not have a large number of pieces, but despite this it is quite a challenge. This is largely due to the fact that the middle layer can only be turned in one place. Thus, you have to match up the top and bottom layer before you can slice. Square-1 is a unique challenge that stands out from the rest. Really hard but also really satisfying when you finally succeed.

Ghost Cube

The toughest 3×3 cube

This one may look a little different compared to a 3×3, but basically it’s the exact same cube. This is a cool modification that allows you to work with shape instead of color. When the cube is scrambled, it is barely recognizable and figuring out which piece goes where is something that takes time. If you solve this in a few hours, you can be satisfied.

Curvy Copter

Two-part challenge

The Curvy copter is an interesting puzzle that can offer you two different levels of difficulty in one and the same puzzle. The levels of difficulty can be described as difficult and even more difficult. Read more on the product page.

Smart cubes

Smart cubes are Rubik’s cubes that can be connected to your mobile phone or tablet. Each move is then tracked in an app and you can, among other things, measure time and see statistics on your solves.

Giiker cube

giiker-super-cube-i3se-smart-cube

Overall the best smart cube

The Giiker cube is, in our opinion, the overall best smart cube and is suitable for beginners as well as experienced cube solvers. In the app there is timed solving and statistics, but also many fun games to play with where you manipulate the game by turning the cube. It’s great fun and a really good product overall!

GAN 356i Carry

gan-356i-carry-smart-cube

Speedcube variant of a smart cube

The GAN 356i Carry is the best choice of smart cube if you are looking for a speedcube. This cube performs better than the Giiker cube when it comes to the hardware itself, such as corner cutting. The app is also better adapted to speedcubing (timed solves), but it doesn’t have any games.

Luboss Drive

A fast favourite

One drop of Luboss Drive is enough to make the cube really fast. Drive was developed with the help of Speedcubing master Daniel Wallin and quickly became a favorite among our customers. The lubricant also makes the cube a little smoother while turning.

Cubicle Weight 5

Cubicle Silicone Lube - Weight 5

For the core

Cubicle Weight 5 is a thick lubricant that lasts an extremly long time. This makes the lubricant absolutely excellent for use in the core (washers, springs, screws). You can also use it on the pieces of the cube to give a soft and more controllable feel. If you use a lot, the cube becomes slower, which makes the lubricant perfect if your cube is difficult to control.

Extra tips

You can mix several different lubricants to get the effects of all of them. For example, you can use Silk to make the cube smooth during turns and then add Drive to make it fast. Do you think the cube feels a bit too fast? Why not add Weight 5 to the core (or pieces) and make the cube quieter at the same time.

Some bonus tips: We like to use Lubicle Speedy in GAN cubes. DNM-37 is a very popular water-based lubricant that makes the cube fast without affecting the feel of the cube.
