Weblog > Rubik’s Mirror Blocks Review
Almost two months ago I wrote about Rubik’s Mirror Blocks and finally I received Rubik’s Mirror Blocks as a present last week. Of course I directly scrambled Rubik’s Mirror Cube and started to solve the cube.
As usual the first two layers were no problem, but as I didn’t remember all Rubik’s Cube solving techniques, it took me a while to refresh my memory before I was able to solve Mirror Block completely.
To solve Rubik’s Mirror Blocks you can use the same techniques as for Rubik’s Cube, but it’s much easier with colors (Rubik’s Cube) than with different size and heights of blocks (Rubik’s Mirror Block). Next to that I found it sometimes hard to align all block to be able to turn a side especially when the largest and smallest blocks are next to each other. This even as it’s very easy with my version of Mirror Blocks to turn a side.
I think it’s easier for the mind to remember the positions of the block when there are colors on them then there are differences in heights. Probably when people start speedcubing with Rubik’s Mirror Blocks it will show that it takes more time to solve Rubik’s Mirror Blocks than to solve a normal Rubik’s Cube, at least that’s what I expect.
Rubik’s Mirror Blocks Cube is now available from Amazon.com. Happy Puzzling!
