After you have learned how to solve the 3x3 cube and maybe got faster at it at one point it gets boring and you want to try something else. But here the question is - What should you continue with?
Well, you can try these events:
- Pyraminx - It's really easy, even easier than the 3x3. If you learn only 12 algorithms you can get pretty fast.
- 2x2 - That's the cube that can be solved without algorithms. But if you want to get faster you will have to learn a lot of algorithms.
- 4x4 - A 3x3 with extra steps. You can find really easy tutorials and it's pretty cool.
- Skewb - Another really easy and cool puzzle. You can get pretty good times with learning only the Sarah's intermediate method (4 algorithms).
- Clock - I personally don't have expierence with this puzzle, but I have heard that it can be solved intutively and it is not hard at all.
If you can solve at least 4 WCA puzzles you can finally move on. At this point, you can learn how to solve all of the cubes in the section for beginners, but if you have already done this - you can try these:
- 3x3 One Handed (OH) - After you have learned how to solve the 3x3 cube you may want to try something different. It's still a bit harder but as more you practice the better you get.
- Megaminx - Again a 3x3 at the beginning. When you reach the last layer you should know how to solve it (with a technique or with algorithms).
- 5x5 - The edge pairing is getting advanced, but the cube itslef is not that hard. If you learn the Reduction method, you can use it for other big cubes too such as 6x6, 7x7...
If you are here, you should have learned how to solve most of the puzzles described on this page, because you must have gained great experience with learning algorithms, memorizing, and recognizing cases. The cubes below are still amusing, but a bit harder.
These are the last WCA puzzles you can learn now:
- 6x6 - A step forward. As I mentioned earlier, when you learn the Reduction method you will be able to solve the rest of the big cubes (yes, even 19x19). Of course, there are lots of tricky things you can master with practice.
- 7x7 - I can only say that it's a big cube, so there's nothing to worry about. The Reduction method can be used again, but to my opinion building of the centers and the edges may be a little annoying.
