    Skewb First Side Cases and Algs! (And look ahead help)

    Hey everyone! So I spent a while playing around with my Skewb, and I decided to create some first side algorithms and cases. Now these are fast and easy, and when you're using these algorithms, you can easily look way ahead and save all that extra time trying to recognize those second side...

    No inspection challenge

    Try solving any cube without looking at it before you solve it. This really tests your look ahead abilities. Give the single or average, the puzzle, and your normal average to compare it with. 3x3 single: 21.13 Normal average: 14-17

    What color cube do you prefer?

    I have found out that my look ahead (and recognition in general) better is with black cubes. It makes the colors stand out I guess. How is it with you guys?

    Metronome discussion thread

    Hello ! Have some of you ever tried the metronome excercise (trying to do one move per tick for the F2L) ? How fast can you go ? I think it is a quite good excercise even though I am really bad at it, I can hardly go over the 80...(that must be why I am so slow solving the cube :p). I...
