How do you read the Megaminx notation?

Want to learn the Megaminx Notation?

  1. When you see a ‘U’ in the Megaminx notation it means to move the top most layer in a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation.
  2. When you see a ‘R’ in the Megaminx notation it means to move the right section of the Megaminx in a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation.

How many combinations does a Megaminx have?

Number of combinations There are 20!/2 ways to arrange the corners and 319 ways to orient them, since the orientation of the last corner depends on that of the preceding ones.

What does bR mean in cubing?

The one face on the 3x3x3 is commonly the back face (B), and the two faces on the Megaminx that are in its spot are the backright (bR) and backleft (bL) faces.

What is 43252003274489856000?

43,252,003,274,489,856,000 is the number of possible legal arrangements of a standard 3×3×3 Rubik’s Cube. This number is a bit over three dozen quintillion.

How many pieces are there in the Megaminx?

It has a total of 50 separate pieces. The Megaminx is an official WCA competition event. The World Record is held by the Korean Yu Da-Hyun with a 33.17s result.

Is the Megaminx cube the same as the cube?

The solution is almost the same, just a few new algorithms come in when you reach the last layer, so if you’re familiar with the classic 3x3x3 Cube then you won’t have problems solving the Megaminx either.
