# Thread: Total solve count for 3x3

1. Probably about 70,000 in 4 years.

3. I'm at around 6000 solves now but a year from now I expect to have done well over 30,000. It just doesn't take that long. Should have been a logarithmic poll, i.e.
thousand, 10-thousand, 100-thousand, million, 10-million, etc.

Engineers seem to have a belief that a device has only some finite number of operations before it is worn out. I wonder how many solves you can do before (a) you've worn out a cube, or (b) you've worn out your hands.

4. 1541 days cubing at around 50ish timed solves per day (could be much more, I'm estimating low) = 77,050 timed solves. The amount of just messing around would be significantly higher, somewhere near 200k solves. So, yes, more than 30k.

5. If you count the 3x3 solve part of big cubes (4x4+), dedicated 3x3 puzzles and 2x2 solves using 3x3 methods and algorithms, I've done about 8000. But remember I've quit three times from my first 3x3 solve in May 2009.

You can solve a 2x2 using only 3x3 algorithms as a 2x2 is a 3x3 without edge cubies.

6. My calculations say 11,150. That seems so low.

7. No estimation at all to be made, but I'm confident in >30k.
Wow. 30,000 solves.... o_O

8. I'm guessing 20,000. I honestly dont know lol.

9. I have 2000 in a spreadsheet and 1000 in gqTimer. That means that 3000 timed solves, minimum. Then I'd estimate another 2000 solves which weren't timed, putting me somewhere near 5000 in 8 months.

10. 'bout tree fiddy
