## How to solve the sudokube

The Sudoku Cube is a ripoff of the Rubik’s Cube, where each face has the numbers 1-9 instead of colours. The goal:

put the numbers 1-9 on each side with no repetition

It was created in 2006 by some guy named Jay Horowitz in Ohio. You can buy it at Barnes and Noble and some other places. In what follows we briefly describe how to solve it…
Of course there are lots of variations, including cubes with 4x4x4, and naming variations are Sodokube, Roxdoku. If you want to solve it you need to realize there are a few different
variations on the cube, so depending which one you have, the solution
will be slightly different.

Step 1: Familiarize yourself with solving a Rubik’s Cube. If you
don’t know how to solve the Rubik’s cube, then you will have a LOT of
trouble with the Sudokube (trust me!).

Step 2: Note the centres of each face of your cube. Some cubes
have 5’s in all the centres, others have varying numbers. As in the
Rubik’s cube, these centres will be fixed points and stay in place when
you do the “moves”.

Step 3: If you have the Rubik’s cube algorithm memorized, you should now have no trouble at all solving the cube!!

The end!
