    "Has Anyone Tried...?" Thread

    I actually have two questions. Has anyone tried making a square-1 mod that's like a Rubik's Tower/2x2x4? Has anyone tried making a Rubik's Clock that uses magnets instead of bumps as the alignment mechanism?

    [Help Thread] "What cube is this?" The cube / puzzle identification thread

    Sorry for the late-ish reply, but no. Last time I checked, Fangshi cubes are pretty obsolete by today's standards.

    Magnetic vs non magnetic

    Magnetic for everything except 3x3, 2x2, and 3BLD. I do main magnetic cubes for those events, I just feel like that's when they're least necessary. Also magnets shouldn't matter for FMC, but that should go without saying.

    What is the easiest WCA event to get world class at?

    Clock. 1.) learn it 2.) know how to set it up 3.) practice

    What is your favorite event?

    This is a hard question for me to answer, since I like every WCA event. If what I practice most would equal my favorite events, it would be: 1.) 3x3 2.) 5x5 3.) 2x2 ...but I also like megaminx, square-1, OH, and 3BLD even though I don't do them as much

    [Help Thread] Big Cube Discussion (5x5 / 6x6 / 7x7 / etc)

    I average about 3:30 on 6x6 and haven't improved in months. I make sure not to turn fast, and my centers are usually around 1:30, with my edges being a little over 1:00 and my 3x3 stage taking about 25-30 seconds. What could I be doing wrong and how can I get to sub-3?

    Pictures of the internals would help, but that logo is definitely Fangshi.

    [Help Thread] Pyraminx Discussion

    I also wanted to know the answer to this, so I messaged my boy Kerry Creech for some advice. He told me he does ring pushes for l' and r, and for r' and l he does a sort of table abuse by picking up the pyraminx by its r and l tips but letting the b tip rest on the table/whatever he's solving...

    Share a tip, Win a Qiyi Mini Wuque M 4x4

    Something I've found out for nerves at a competition, no idea if this is just me or other people are like this too: Don't warm up before a solve with the same cube you're about to solve. I've found out that when I warm up doing this I tend to not overthink my official solves as much because...

    [Help Thread] Pyraminx Discussion

    I believe they mainly use L4E, yes. As for hardware, I personally would say the YuXin Huanglong, but the Shengshou Mr. M is becoming a popular choice due to Steven Wintringham and John Gaynor. I think people still use the MoYu mag (Tymon's main) and the XMD Bell, but I find both of those lacking...

    [Help Thread] Skewb Discussion and Help

    Forgive me for posting about hardware instead of methods/fingertricks, but how am I supposed to set up my AoYan? I always end up making it too slow or fast and locky, and I can't find a way to make it better.

    Agreed, I think that even if they can make a functional clock they could at least release it in the MeiLong line.

    Upcoming puzzles

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but in some sort of interview with MoYu they said that they've been trying to make a good mechanism but can't.
