The name CUBICKS is a mix of the words CUBES and LOGICS. Pretty obvious, but what about the letter K ?
The K shows that CUBICKS is also a mix of two games: RUBIK'S CUBE and SUDOKU. They both have a K pretty much at the end of the word. The K in Cubicks is a tribute to these other games.
In fact there is a small story that connects all three games. Cubicks is invented by Marcelo Pars. Years ago he went on holiday to the lakeside of Lago Maggiore in Italy with his wife and kids. Every morning he stepped out his tent, made a cup of coffee and set himself behind a sudoku. But on one morning the whole family woke up early to make a visit to the city Milano. It was a Sunday and a lot of shops were closed. But at a street corner there was a big black fellow who had installed himself behind a shelf where he showed all his second hand stuff. In the middle of that shelf there was this Rubik's Cube. Marcelo saw the cube and hesitated. He knew that buying this cube would be the end of happy mornings solving suduko's. The guy saw Marcelo looking at the cube. "It turns really easy," he said. "Why don't you give it a try?" From then on holiday looked more like work, the way Marcelo was struggling with that cube. But now he likes to think a seed was planted in his head that summer. A seed that grew in his mind to this game: Cubicks.
Look at the left side and find the cube to color. On the right you see the answer.
