For many of us, it's been there the whole time. It's been part of our lives and our childhood. To me, it's the puzzle that was responsible for all this - my love for mechanical puzzles. The Rubik's Cube has inspired a whole generation of puzzlers and has proved time and again that entertaining someone doesn't need to be done through a screen.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the first Rubik's Cube, they launched a new version with some tweaks that promises to take the Cube to yet another 40 years into the future and inspire another generation of young puzzlers. If you've liked the original, I'm sure you'll love this one as well.

The first change you'll notice immediately is the metallic stickers, although they can't be called stickers per se, since they seem to be encrusted into the body of the cube. No stickers mean no peeling, no fading and makes it harder to cheat, unless you take the whole cube apart and reassemble it. But you don't want to do that, right? It's much more fun to actually solve it with your own skills.

Movement in the new cube is also smoother due to a new mechanism. Even though it's easier to move, I wouldn't recommend it for speedcubing, since it's still far from the flawless movement of the professional speedcubes you see on the market today. Other than that, it's still nice to play with this cube just for fun.

Closing Comments:

Twelve years after buying the first cube, which started it all, I was really happy to add another version of the classic cube to my collection. The new metallic design gives it new life and it truly shines beside the original. Two classics that deserve their place in history.
