Strange question, but does anyone know of a systematic way to determine if a word can be spelled on a 5x5? I'm having trouble figuring it out.

i don't really understand your question, or i might try to answer

Wouldn't the centers screw up the result?

Do you know of a way to determine if a word can be spelled on a 5x5 with one letter per face without spending a lot of time actually trying to do it?

If you're only using centers: Check if you can form the letters using the same center piece types (and if middle centers work out)?

well, i don't know. . .you can spell "hi" on a 3x3
but i don't know that you could make any super complex letters on a 5x5. and all your words would have to be 2-3 letters or palindromes, because the letter would have to be mirrored on opposing sides.

probably semi-possible, i guess

I don't think so.

@Lucas: That was the kind of answer I was looking for, but unfortunately I'm not just using centers.

Oh, I thought you meant writing out a story or something on the stickers and then solving it and finding out what it said. Nevermind.

Stop inspiring me to ruin a cube with a sharpie so I can try to do this.

You could send secure messages between cubers.

I always put a little piece of paper on the inside of an edge piece simply for the fact that if any cuber finds my cube and disassembles it, they'd know where to send it to XD.

Also, find a font which uses letters from 3x3 blocks.
The optimal thing would be to use the centres on a V7.

Hey! I do that too. I write little random notes and stick them under caps. Kinda like a time capsule.

Still not exactly what I was looking for, but very cool, nonetheless.
