Doubling Cube Quiz 3

Doubling Cube Quiz No. 3

By Phil Simborg



This is a quiz that will test your cube skills.

There are only three positions, but there are multiple answers.  Write down your answers on a piece of paper, then scroll to the bottom and see how well you did.

I don't believe there are many players in the world who will get them all correct, so don't feel bad if you don't. 


If nothing else, this will help you identify areas where you need work on your cube action.
