    What do you do when you have parity on bottom?

    I'm just beginning with squan myself, but are you talking about parity as the last step? I learned you can do parity before pbl, which is a shorter alg, and I assume you can do it on the top no matter what.

    Well it's been a while, but my Ao100 is now sub 1 minute, and given that I only have ~700 timed solves, I'm calling myself sub-1 now. I usually get in the 40s or 50s, unless I screw up a perm or something, in which case I get like 1:15 or more, which drives my average way up. My best ao12 is 49.75

    How many solves do you do to get accurate splits?

    Now that I've finished pll, I can focus on spamming solves, and I think my times are really going to start coming down. Today I got a new single pb: 34.55 And a new Ao5 49.2 And my ao50 and Ao100 are getting closer to sub 1min.

    Welcome to the forums where people will either tell you to use an entirely different method or advise you on things to learn that you've already learned. 28 in 3 weeks on a Rubik's brand no less is very impressive

    Finished full PLL! I occasionally mess one up, but I feel pretty solid on almost all of them. I'm still not sub 1 minute, but I think my plan is to focus on practicing cross and f2l until I get sub 40. I figure my OLL and PLL will naturally get a lot faster as I do more solves.

    World Record Predictions for the year 2030

    My prediction is there will be no comps in 2030 due to a global pandemic.

    You could chain this and have everyone cross arms and solve half of a cube with right hand on their left and another with their left hand on their right. Also I imagine you could a challenge version of team OH where you can't say anything to each other, and hope you both know the same algs.

    Nice! I've never been to a comp, so I don't know what sort of things people get up to.

    This thread is for ideas of fun twisty puzzle games you can play with multiple people (2, 3 or more). Bonus points if it works well for people at different speeds or abilities. One idea I did with my 2 kids is a 3x3 layer by layer relay. We all solved layer one, then passed the cube to the...

    No worries, I'm glad people on the forums are keen to help. But I also kind of feel like generally speaking, unless someone is asking how to get faster, they probably aren't likely to need recommendations for learning new methods.

    Thank you everyone for your suggestions, but to be honest, I really don't need "learn x to get faster" tips. I know what I need to do to get faster, and I've already learned most of what's been suggested. It's a common difference between a younger cuber and an older one. I learn new stuff before...

    4yo got a new pb by a huge margin. 2:54! Now he's on the hunt for sub 1 min. If it's not clear, this is the progression thread for my whole family now, haha.

    MBLD ER by Krzysztof Bober 42 points

    This may be an unpopular opinion, or maybe not, but I think mbld is the most impressive cubing achievement. Especially for someone who doesn't know the methods (I do for the most part), it just seems insane.
