What is CubeSkills?

CubeSkills is an instructional website designed to teach people how to solve the Rubik’s cube and become a speedcuber.

Where do I start?

If you don’t know how to solve the Rubik’s cube at all, check out our beginner's method guide.

If you’re looking for more advanced speedcubing content, take a look at the tutorial videos page and learn from some of our more intermediate or advanced modules! The modules are arranged in chronological order to guide your progression most effectively.

How do I get faster?

Check out the blog post I wrote, which gives you an overview about how to become a faster speedcuber. After this, watch the tutorials which correspond to your skill level, and last but not least, practice hard!

What speedcube should I get?

There are so many different cubes available for sale these days, and cube companies are constantly coming out with new ones! The best thing to do is check out YouTube reviews of cubing hardware. Here’s a video I made a while ago which might help you out.

What do you use to time your solves?

There are many great speedcubing timers out there on the web. My personal favourite is qqTimer. Another really popular one one is csTimer. For mobile devices, I’d recommend any of ChaoTimer for iOS, FiveTimer for Android, as well as csTimer.net and timer.cubing.net on your mobile web browser.

Why are you charging money for speedcubing tutorials?

Good question! Typically most speedcubing content on YouTube is free to view, and resources such as the speedsolving forum and wikipedia page are available to everyone.

Here at CubeSkills, we also offer heaps of free content, and this will always be the case. However, given the time and money we have poured into this project, we see the premium membership as a way for people to support the growth of CubeSkills and receive some cool premium membership benefits!

The cost of a premium membership is very reasonable, equivalent to approximately 4 new speedcubes per year!

Can you offer me private lessons on skype or hangouts?

Unfortunately, we don’t have the time or spare capacity to deliver one-on-one lessons. The content in the tutorials section should answer any questions you have about speedcubing methods and progression. If not, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have - we may end up adding your suggestion to the tutorials page!
