Does anyone have a link to some explanations of Super Square-1 parity? I'm stuck with the entire thing solved except the circle on the top and bottom is half green and half blue.
2. Random Cubing Discussion

At what point during a big cube solve is parity determined? I'm guessing you're locked in to a particular parity once you finish the Reduction Phase, but I don't know enough about cubing theory to back that up.

Anybody have a link to a good 5x5x5 reduction tutorial? Preferably text, but a video works too.
4. What should I get?

If its for collecting, who cares? Get an AV or F2 for speedcubin', get the rubiks for collecting.
5. Waffle's Roux Tutorial

Does anyone more experienced with Roux than me have an opinion on using white/yellow on R/L? I love it for lookahead on F2B but most people seem to have white/yellow on U/D.
6. [Help Thread] "What cube should I get?" The Puzzle Choice Thread

Just did a bit of looking, as I'm wanting to get a 2x2, 4x4 and 5x5. I prefer the A-V when it comes to 3x3, so I'd like something in that direction preferably. I was looking at LanLan 2x2, Mini QJ 4x4, and Vcube 5x5. Anyone who's had some experience wanna weigh in?
7. Alpha V feels bad :(

The AV also takes a bit of breaking in, even if you don't mod it. I have an unmodded AV that I HATED for about two weeks. Thought it was the worst money I'd ever spent, but I kept lubing and breaking it in because it was my only cube at the time. After about two weeks it was totally broken in...
8. A-V deteriorating?

Mine did that too. Cleaning really thoroughly and re-lubing fixed it.

10. cross solver

It's only four pieces, it shouldn't take more than a minute or two to find the optimum solution intuitively...
11. California Proposition 19 (Legalization of Marijuana)

Try it! I honestly think everyone should try it once, even if they never do afterwards. It's really an experience unlike any other. That's part of why stoners seem so weird to non-smokers: You can't really put the feeling into words so trying to describe it to someone who hasn't also felt the...
12. Hey guys I just need some tips on where to start!

The method that comes in the booklet will easily get you under a minute. My best time with it before learning a more advanced one was 34 seconds, so you can most definitely get under a minute with practice. With the times you're at now, it's just practice that will help. You could learn a...
13. Haiyan Memory vs. Alpha V cube

From what I hear, you really need to get Maru lube for your Guhong, because it's only average without it.
14. Haiyan Memory vs. Alpha V cube

Exactly. Even for the most expensive cube in the world, you're talking about the price of a several year old used video game, or a meal at a restaurant. I can understand telling a new guitar player not to buy a \$2000 guitar, but a cube is incredibly cheap. Who cares if a newbie gets a Memory...
15. Haiyan Memory vs. Alpha V cube

^One of the worst posts I've read. Considering a top of the line cube is still unbelievably cheap, why shouldn't he just buy an AV or memory? You can go from 50 seconds to 30 seconds in just a few weeks easily, so he'll be able to appreciate them soon. Stop being such an elitist.
