1. ### Only Side Events...and 2x2 | Forum Comp | Comp Finished | What should I do?

The Comp has Finished! Events: • 2x2 • Clock • Megaminx • Pyraminx • Skewb • Square-1 Depending on how many competitors we will get on each event, will decide how many rounds on that event Qualification per rounds: Round 1 - anyone Round 2 - Top 16 Final - Top 8 And what is different about...
2. ### What is the notation for the left slice on a Square-1?

I am a lefty cuber so I solve the square-1 using left slices and use algorithms that use left slices. I always thought the notation was \ but apparently \ also refers to the right slice. What is the correct notation for the left slice?
3. ### My Cubing Related Statistics Paper

I'm not quite sure how many people on these forums can appreciate this, but for the few of you, I think you will enjoy this analysis for what it is. Basically, I wanted to compare an average of 25 in 3x3 and square-1 to find out which one I'm actually faster in. I'll post it as a spoiler since...
4. ### Davians Square-1 goal

I have many goals this year. But one of then is to make a good average for square one, but there is only one thing: I average around 50 seconds which is 15-25 seconds late for cutoff. Ill be posting my good times and practices here. I use my own scramble as i am slow with scrambling
5. ### Average Square-1 shape distances, for all shapes

Not sure if this really deserves a thread on its own, but I guess a mod can merge it into the squan discussion thread if not. The left/right labelling of the paws and fists follows Jaap's square-1 page. Peacock = cccccee (aka "pair") Arrow = ccccece (aka "perpendicular") Badge = cccecce (aka...
6. ### Using M2's to solve EP Algorithms in Square-1

My recent tutorial shows how to learn to solve some EP cases very easily!
7. ### Average Movecount for Square-1

A thread to calculate average movecount, per method, for square-1. This should be done in faceturn metric, that is every slice and U or D face turns count as one move ( e.g. (3,0)/ is 2 moves and (3,3)/ is 3 moves ). This should be done separately, with and without CSP ( similar to how ZZ's...
8. ### Lin Method Tutorial for Square-1!

Hello! I made a tutorial on the Lin method for Square-1, as I saw that there weren't that many resources out there. I hope you enjoy!
9. ### What cubes should be removed from the WCA?

Since I've made a thread on what events should be added, and many people thought events should be taken away before new ones were added, I decided to make a poll on it. 2x2-6x6 are not included because most people will agree are challenging yet don't take too long. Megaminx is also excluded...
10. ### u Cube Square-1 Method

Overview The u Cube sq1 method, created by u Cube (https://www.youtube.com/c/uCubeYT), is a variant of the popular Roux/Lin methods which take a blockbuilding heavy approach to solving the puzzle. It is a very intuitive method, having 9 algorithms in total, making it an easy to learn advanced...
11. ### How do you go about creating algorithms for more advanced puzzles like the Square-1?

Hello everyone! I have been trying to figure out how to solve the Square-1. I have some ideas and tried things that might possibly work / be needed for solving the puzzle, but I really need to be able to write algorithms for this puzzle. My problem is that the Square-1 doesn't have a solid...
12. ### Next Step After Begginer Square-1 Method

I've been solving square-1 for about 2 weeks now and I am averaging a little over a minute. The method I use is a simple beginners method where I put all edges on top and get cube-shape, then I orient all corners intuitively. Next I orient the edges to solve the white and yellow faces using a...
