The Superflip (image below) is an example of a configuration where no two squares of the same color are adjacent.

Rubiks Cube Superflip

I'm interested to know how many solvable configurations (that is, those that you can reach from a solved cube) with no two squares of the same color adjacent exist (I found it hard to get there by randomly rotating sides).

    $\begingroup$ If this question already exists on the site, why would you ask it again? I think it would be more appropriate to start a bounty on the original question to draw more attention to it. $\endgroup$ – Mike Pierce Aug 13 '18 at 15:44
  • $\begingroup$ That's fair, @MikePierce --- I saw the duplicate question after (and added a link to my question); should I have simply deleted my question? (My original search on Google for rubiks cube no two colors adjacent didn't find it). $\endgroup$ – Vincent Tjeng Aug 22 '18 at 16:25

    $\begingroup$ Ehh, I think so yeah. The other one did come first. And otherwise, for the sake of good housekeeping, eventually one of the questions will be answered and the other marked as a duplicate. I'd recommend you edit/improve the other question too, especially add the links to Quora and Puzzling. And if you don't add a bounty on the other question, I (eventually) will. I want to go talk to PuzzlingSE about something first. $\endgroup$ – Mike Pierce Aug 23 '18 at 3:39
