Original Rubik's Race - Gameplay and Rules
Rubik's Race is a 2 players game. This puzzle game is very easy and also popular among kids. In this game, on the scrambler you will be given a pattern with colored tiles. The objective of the players is to set their own colored tiles matching the pattern. The one who makes the pattern first is the winner.
Each player will get one frame which will have 24 tiles. Those tiles will have 6 color groups and each color group will have four tiles. There will be an empty space in the tray.
Players sit facing each other and manipulate their trays. A player shuffle tiles and sets a pattern to the colors of the tiles without showing the scrambler to the players. The scrambler is placed in front of both players with a cover, ensuring both players are ready to start the game. After making sure both players are ready, the cover is removed. The point to note here is that the scrambler should not contain more than four cubes of the same color and players can't pick up the tile.
As soon as cover is removed from the scrambler, both players begin the Rubik's Race. Both players have a 5x5 tray with 24 colored tiles, and 9 (3x3) tiles in the center of that tray. The player has to match the scrambler pattern to the center 3x3 tiles. Due to the an empty space, the player can slide the tiles around. The player who matches the pattern first is the winner.
