  • What puzzles can you do blind? I know you can do 2-7 and SQ1 blind, but are there any others you can do? This includes non-WCA and non-NxNxN puzzles. (i.e: Pyra or Skewb)

    I once attempted every event in the weekly competition blind, but that was a number of years ago, before some of the new puzzles were added. But I have done skewb, pyraminx, megaminx, magic and master magic (LOL!), and clock. There might be more, but that's all I can think of now.

    I guess I could also mention 8x8x8, although that's just another NxNxN. I tried gigaminx a few times, but never got a success.
    When I did every event, I included really silly things like feet BLD (I actually got an average of 5 - just one DNF!) and FMC BLD (which was incredibly silly).

    That made me laugh. Gigaminx Bld would been interesting but fmc blind and feet blind is too far lol
    Do you still attempt Sq-1 MBLD? I saw you had UWR with 10/10 and wondered if you ever practice it and if you are pushing to get a better result.

    I am sad to say that I have lost the ability through lack of practice. But I do have the method documented, and I do hope to go back to it someday - there are some things I'd really like to achieve with it someday.

    And for what it's worth, I do still use part of the memorization scheme to solve sighted square-1 - I use it to get to square. Which is horribly slow, but works, and keeps a small part of the overall method alive and practiced.
    Hey, I was looking at my times that I had gotten in previous weekly competitions and it says that I have a 5-second square 1 single. It was supposed to be a fifty-second single because I am not capable of that sort of time. Do you know of a way that I can change this? If it can't be changed you could just dnf that solve.
    [WCA Regulations 2012] Proposed New Event: square1 BLD

    sorry... i dont know if this was proposed before.

    so, i tell you, and if you are agree, do it public
    (sorry my short english)
    You inbox is full!

    Well, your a thoughtful cuber! You take the time to consider and understand how and why things work, and you help others gain that same clarity in your descriptions. So it doesn't surprise me at all XD

    But yes, NISS is what I was looking for. Looks like I have some studying to do!

    Thanks Mike!
