I just added it up in my head, and from when i first got a Rubiks brand to now was exactly 135$#### DeeDubb ##### Member probably less than$150 dollars. It really bugs me when slow people have more cubes than me(I average 15, talking about people who are in the 20s), how bout you guys? I mean like some people on youtube get new cubes every week and they spend so much time on those new cubes that they don't improve their times at all. thats okay for puzzle collectors but these people are "speedcubers"
I find life is a lot easier when you don't let what other people do bother you.

You can't say "it's the cuber not the cube" as if the cube has nothing to do with speed, and also say that spending time experimenting with different cubes has anything to do with being slow. Not saying YOU personally said that but it's very common on the forums. Although a quality cube makes a difference from a rubiks brand, pretty much any modern cube is capable of solid times.

I've probably spent upwards of $200-$250 in total and have lots of cubes but am not "fast" by the standards of the community. I agree with you that strict collectors spend more money on cubes than the average cuber, but it doesn't have anything to do with their speed IMO.

Yes, and like you said, they are slower than you. That is why you shouldn't let it affect you.

I would like to see another thread called "How many hours have you spent cubing?"

800+ on puzzles

#### LNZ

If you include all twisty puzzles and downloaded iPad apps to emulate sliding tile puzzles, I have spent about $2200. I would count the following as twisty puzzles: Missing Link, Rubik's 360, Rubik's Snake, Gripple, etc Most costly item: Yuxin 11x11 cube, costing$153 AUD.

I give special thanks to the strong Australian dollar for making these products affoardable. Experts tip the Australian dollar to reach parity with the US dollar now.

For me it's somewhere in the 5-digit numbers (maybe like 20000 or more), mostly on trains/flights and hotels to go to comps.
