Are you looking for a solution to the Rubik's Cube puzzle? If so, you very likely have already found quite a number of examples on the web. A nice place to start is at SpeedSolving or Wikibooks, with links to many other web pages.

A few years ago I taught myself one of these solutions. A year later, I had mostly forgotten how it is done. That is, I got stuck when trying to do the cube from memory. This explains my motivation to write up a method that relies less on memorization of clever moves and more on remembering some basic strategies.

The result is this webpage describing the 'LBL-Y Method'. It is aimed at beginners and describes a rather simple and I believe easily remembered method. Of course, that means different things to different people. Let me know what you think. My hope is that you find these pages useful.

Have fun.
