There is no speed solution, its just the normal solution. You've just got to learn two do it in one go, istead of two halves.

Use the search button next time. Or just work it out, it's the easiest thing in the world.

Watch it again, and again, and again. Just try play with the puzzle and look at pictures of it. Its not hard to work out.

Competition, it isn't an official puzzle of the WCA. 8-)

Yup, which is why all those solutions will work fine. Maybe I should have stated the solutions work equally in competition.

Lol, a lot of time could have been saved if I had seen this thread before... I made a video and put it on youtube to help people in this situation :D

I'm not sure if that was before this thread or not though. If you guys ever see anyone who needs help with it, tell them to youtube search "How to solve a rubik's snake" and look for the vid by Fallofshadows.

Teaching People is fun, because no matter what they don't think they can get it, and then when they do they get super excited... It's a good feeling, lol.
