Hi,

I was wondering about the possible combinations on an 6x6x6 cube?
It must be a huge number...
Any idea?

Thanks

You can see Chris's general forumula here:

And I once wrote a program called "RubiksCubeCombinations" that you can find in the "files" section of the speedcubing yahoo group and which I used it to compute the above number:

1.572 * 10^116

That's pretty big... Compare it with a few others:

2.199 * 10^82 - Dogic
2.8xx * 10^74 - 5x5x5
1.007 * 10^68 - Megaminx/Supernova (12 color)
7.4xx * 10^45 - 4x4x4
7.2xx * 10^34 - Alexander's Star
1.772 * 10^23 - Rubik's supercube (picture cube)
4.325 * 10^19 - 3x3x3
8.2xx * 10^18 - Octahedron
4.0xx * 10^8 - Rubik's Domino (3x3x2)
7.6xx * 10^7 - Pyraminx
1.9xx * 10^7 - Dino Cube
3.7xx * 10^6 - 2x2x2
3.1xx * 10^6 - Skewb

If you want to get technical just on sequential movement alone then Rubik's ZigZaw is not the answer but it does have 5.8*10^120 combinations. So that should count for something. Right?!?!?!
