### Want to learn the notation for the 6x6?

Want to learn how to solve a 6x6? well, You've got to start by learning the correct notation. We have included both the WCA official and unofficial notations in the guide below. In this guide we learn the outer moves, inner moves, center slice moves and wide moves all on the 6x6.

In the images below the part of the puzzle that is greyed out is the part of the puzzle which does not move. The pieces in colour are the pieces that we will rotate.

### Single Layer Turns (Outer)

When You see an UPPERCASE 'F' you should move the front most layer in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation.

When You see an UPPERCASE 'B' you should move the far back most layer in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation.

When You see an UPPERCASE 'U' you should move the top most layer in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation.

When You see an UPPERCASE 'D' you should move the bottom layer in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation.

When You see an UPPERCASE 'R you should move the far right layer in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation.

When You see an UPPERCASE 'L' you should move the far left layer in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation.

### Dual Layer Turns

The following list of wide layer moves are the WCA official notation. However, you will find many websites and other people use a slightly different notation such as Ff, Bb, Uu, Dd, Rr or Ll
