Frequently when I play with the cube, I try to solve it in as few

moves as possible. I find this to be more intellectually challenging

than going for speed. Does any one else do this? I'd be interested

in comparing notes. Presently it takes me between 70 and 100 quarter-

twists, provided I don't make gross errors. (My guess is that if I

were counting slices and half-twists as one, the number would be

between 50 and 70.)
