# Thread: How do you challenge your solving ability, other than with time?

1. ## How do you challenge your solving ability, other than with time?

I don't know about you, but I can only time myself solving the cube and be entertained by that for so long. I've started messing around with multitasking while cubing, I'll show you what I mean;

Sorry, I don't know how to imbed the video.
Not only can I solve the 3x3 up there, but I can do 4x4-7x7 and Megaminx (with 5x5 being my favorite to balance and solve). I'm hoping one day to manage a dab free Gigaminx solve. I've also started unicycling while solving, tightrope walking or balancing on handrails while solving, and I'm working on solving a 3x3 with my feet while juggling 3 balls.

I figured there was no way I could be the only person that tried random things like this while solving the cube, so now it's your turn to share. Vid's preferred, but stories are just as good.

2. Fewest Move Count
Blindfold Solving
One Hand
Underwater
Solving cube with each face making a photo instead of stickers.

3. Solving with limitations, like restricting cube movement. And experiment with other methods.
You can also relay

4. Without turning a specific face...
Try a different method, I like to mess around with the "belt method" just for fun.

5. Linear FMC.

Alg generation.

6. For me it's multi-methoding (everything from LBL to Human Thistletwaite and back) and FMC.

Oh and practicing BLD while driving to work :-)

7. Recently, Making up random F2L tricks.
Learning algs.

4x4.

8. That Rola-Bola balance look really fun.

I hope you mean memo only. Or onehanded execution while watching the road.

For me, I solve starting with different colours. Almost colour neutral now. Solving with other methods is fun too.

Offcourse...
Execution during the 15 minutes or so of trafic.

Although driving blindfolded does seem like a nice challenge ;-)
