It's been around for almost 50 years and has seen many changes in appearance. But with the Rubik's Slide, the now classic 3D puzzle takes the gameplay several stages further. At first glance, it doesn't look all that different from the standard Rubik's Cube with its six color tiles that must be put in order, but what the Ruki's Slide is a major innovation: it not only makes the puzzle appealing to millennials but also rekindles the interest of their predecessors, who grew up with the iconic object designed by Hungarian sculptor and architect Ernő Rubik.
The game changer here is that in the Rubik's Slide, you don't turn rows of tiles to make them match. The puzzle is made of 29 moving mini cubes that you can take out of the bigger cube and turn to have the color you want facing this or that side. Sounds easier than the original? No, it's not! This is actual 3D play that doesn't fit standard solving patterns. In other words, no speedcubing (at least not yet!). Get ready to be challenged with this new Rubik's Cube for the 21st century!
