Rubik's Cube: the Greatest Logic Puzzle in Digital Form
It will be difficult to find a person over twenty years of age who would not have heard of Rubik's (originally Magic) Cube. This square toy has lots of fans all over the world. This cube with differently colored segmented sides is usually given to a player with all tiles mixed up.
