## Introduction: Rubiks Cube Pranks

This is for those of you who like to speed cube, or you have friends who like to speed cube.

Most people will have a standard Rubik's 3x3, others will have a DIY cube

The idea is to make the cube impossible to solve.

The way to remove the pieces is to rotate the top layer 45 degrees, then put your finger or screwdriver under the edge, and pull up on the piece

## Step 1: Rubik's Brand

There are 4 ways to do this:

1) Rotate a corner

To make sure that the position is not solvable,

start at 0 with all corners oriented to be solvable

if you rotate a corner clockwise, add 1

if you rotate a corner counterclockwise, subtract 1

make sure that the number is NOT divisible by 3

2) Rotate an edge piece

3) Switch 2 edge pieces

4) switch 2 Corner pieces

Other than that, you can combine them any way you like.

1) Rotate a corner

To make sure that the position is not solvable,

start at 0 with all corners oriented to be solvable

if you rotate a corner clockwise, add 1

if you rotate a corner counterclockwise, subtract 1

make sure that the number is NOT divisible by 3

2) Rotate an edge piece

3) Switch 2 edge pieces

4) switch 2 Corner pieces

**NOTE: DO NOT DO #3 AND #4 AT THE SAME TIME. IT MAKES IT SOLVABLE**Other than that, you can combine them any way you like.

## Step 2: DIY 3x3

There are 5 ways to do the prank on this type of cube.

1) Rotate a corner

To make sure that it is not solvable

start t 0 with corners able to be solved

if you rotate a corner clockwise, add 1

if you rotate a corner counterclockwise, subtract 1

make the number is NOT divisible by 3

2) Rotate an edge (odd number)

3) Switch 2 Edge Pieces

4) Switch 2 Corner Pieces

5) Switch 2 centers

You can combine them any way you want, but do not #3 and #4 at the same time, it makes them solvable.

## Step 3: Executing the Prank

Screw up the cube by scrambling and switching pieces and rotating pieces. have your friend who can solve the rubiks cube solve the cube. watch his reaction when he cant solve the cube.
