On Thursday, Dec. 16 at 6:30 p.m., Andy Basnett will demonstrate a few move sequences and then coach participants in the quest to solve a Rubik’s Cube. Participants are encouraged to practice their new strategies over the holidays and then show off their new-found skills at the Dover Public Library’s first Rubik’s Cube Competition on Jan. 20.

Rubik’s Cube is a 3-D combination puzzle that was invented in 1974 by Erno Rubik, a Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture. It was originally called the Magic Cube, but when the Ideal Toy Corporation bought the license to market the cube in 1980, the company changed the name to Rubik’s Cube. Even today, cube enthusiasts still love the challenge and have organized international tournaments in order to compete with other fans from around the world.

The instructional session and the tournament will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the community room at the DPL, 525 N. Walnut St.
