Rules to play Rubiks Cube
Parts of the Cube
Names are assigned to parts of the cube. All names are relative to the spatial directions irrespective of colour of the faces.The six faces are called Right, Left, Up, Down, Front, and Back. Although they are perfectly symmetric, algorithms concentrates their movements on the RDUF faces (in descending priority). Observation are nearly always made on FU faces. Thus, the algorithms usually move faces easiest to move and observations are on faces easiest to observe.The twelve edges are called by the name of the two faces forming the edge e.g. UR. When calling a single edge, UR can be called RU also.The eight corners are called by the name of the three faces forming the corner.
