In this class, 50 children aged nine to fourteen set themselves the same challenge every week: complete 50 blocks as quickly as possible. In addition to the game, the Cube also represents an educational interest. These teachers have been giving these students the puzzle for fifteen years. They see a lot of progress.

A puzzle that has not aged even a second

The most famous game from the 80s never left the schoolyard. In Bayonne, a company has made it their profession. It is the only store specialized in cubes in France. In total, the store has 5,000 references and new items every week. There is an infinite variety of designs and billions of possible combinations.

For beginners there are cube teachers. The simplest technique is to form the white cross on one side. Then you do not have to complete each colored plane one after the other, but complete the cube per level, from the first to the last. With a little practice, the work pays off. This one object, which creates social bonds, is highly addictive, regardless of age. Since its invention, more than 350 million Rubik’s Cubes have been sold worldwide.
