History of Magic Cubes


Magic Cube Puzzle -- Most Popular Games in the World

The Magic Cube, which is also knowed as the Cube Puzzle, is a 3-D mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik. The Magic Cube won the German Game of the Year special award for Best Puzzle that year. By the end of January 2009, 350 million cubes have sold worldwide. It is widely considered to be the world's best-selling toy.

In a classic Magic Cube, each of the six faces is covered by 9 stickers, among six solid colours. A pivot mechanism enables each face to turn independently, thus mixing up the colours. For the puzzle to be solved, each face must be a solid colour. Similar puzzles have now been produced with various numbers of stickers.

The Magic Cube has inspired an entire category of similar puzzles, commonly referred to as twisty puzzles, which includes the cubes of different sizes mentioned as well as various other geometric shapes. Some such shapes include the tetrahedron (Pyraminx), the octahedron (Skewb Diamond), the dodecahedron (Megaminx), the icosahedron (Dogic). There are also puzzles that change shape such as Rubik's Snake and the Square One.
