Hello. Ever since the 4th grade I have been challenging myself. I started off with a standard 3X3 and with a lot of persistence, by the end of my 4th grade year I could solve it in about half an hour. When summer was over, I got my time down to 3 minutes. To this day I have it down to a minute. Anyway, after I figured out how to solve that, I got a Rubik's Revenge as my next challenge. That proved to be hard, but once I decided to solve the insides first one day, it became fairly easy. Then I got a square one...took me a good week. After that I moved up to the professor's cube (not too bad, but very intimidating). After that I advanced to an alexander's star. This puzzle I had for years and there was no way I was going to solve it, it was a headache. Well at the beginning of the summer, I really buckled down and figured this one out. So a few days ago I bought a megaminx. This puzzle seemed hard, but with the knowledge gained by the standard cube and the algorithms that I painstakingly figured out from the star, this only took me one day to solve. Now only a few days later, I can solve this in well under 10 minutes. So my question to you is this...

What do I buy next?

@LNZ why would you suggest V7 if he doesn't even have 5x5 or v6 ? -_-
but i think you should probably get a mastermorphix,or pyraminx,i hear both are fun,i don't own either one,but my mastermorphix is in the mail, :D or perhaps make some mods ? a siamese cube is very fun,not hard to learn,but it's very fun.

edit: and it's easy to make,and cheap to make :p

Professor's cube=5X5, I do have one. Yes, I am a noob and honestly don't care. This isn't even my main hobby, I am a very good marine hobbyist.

Everyone else, thanks for the suggestions. I'm liking the idea of the v cube as well as the skewb. I think I'll throw in a rubik's magic as well but I doubt that will prove much of a challenge.

Well it seems to me that you really enjoy solving puzzles, and you seem to be very good at it. I strongly recomend checking out the folliwing puzzles here:

1.1.1
1.1.2
1.1.3
1.1.9
1.1.11
1.1.12
1.2.1
1.2.2
1.3.4
1.4.1 (after 3.3.1)
2.2.1
2.2.2
2.2.8
2.2.14
3.2.1 (skewb)
3.2.7 (very intuitive)
3.3.1
3.4.2 (the best puzzle ever)
4.2.1
4.2.2
4.2.6
5.1.2
5.1.4

Some of these puzzles are fairly simple, but other ones provide a nice challenge that makes the eventual breakthrough so good. In my opinion, the controls are a bit hard to get used to, but pretty easy after that.

I love it. I just solved the 6X6 and once you get used to the controls, it isn't too hard. Thanks for the link!
