What if we had something similar with cubes? Basically, a competitor gets a scramble, and they have to write down a solution (which isn't reverse scramble). The thing is, they aren't given a cube. They have to scramble an imaginary cube in their head, and solve it. However, rather than solving it in the fewest moves possible, the competitor simply must come up with a solution as quickly as possible.
This sounds a lot less fun.

This would be quite a challenge, I don't think many people would be able to do this.
There are many capable of this.

I'm thinking tracing one piece at a time, and essentially using a BLD method. Then just write down the comms, since it's speed not fewest moves. Might not actually be too hard. Trace buffer piece through inverse scramble to find out which piece is at the buffer to start, and proceed likewise from there.
