You may not remember exactly where or when, but you must remember seeing the Rubik’s cube for the first time. 

The innovative puzzle came on the market in 1974, and it was like nothing we’d ever seen.

According to this article

A Rubik’s cube can be twisted and twiddled in 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 different ways, and 43,252,003,274,489,855,999 of them are wrong.

The typical Rubik’s cube has nine squares on six sides, and bright, vivid colors. Experts have calculated that a cube could be solved in as few as 20 moves, no matter how it is scrambled. 

Unfortunately, I’ve never had the pleasure of solving it.

The cube rose to its height of popularity in 1980 and 1981, then faded fast.  It’s making a comeback with teens who are new to the puzzle.

Maybe I’ll pick one up and try my luck again.
