The Rubik's Cube is often called the world's greatest puzzle. I would have to agree. The Rubik's Cube is intuitively easy to understand the basics of, but tricky to solve the first time. Once you understand how to solve it, it can be easily solved in a minute or two. If you're really good at it you can do it under 30 seconds. My record so far is 1 minute 58 seconds. Pretty much everyone who picks one up has to play with it a bit. It's also easy to carry around with you and impress people with when you have them mix it up and then you proceed to solve it. When my grandfather was in the hospital after he had a heart attack, someone gave him a Rubik's Cube and he spent quite a bit of time playing with it trying to solve it. It kept him very entertained. I highly recommend picking one up, it's really quite a fun toy.
