SURPRISE CHALLENGE
(I'm sorry)

Here's a 2x2x2 scramble: U R' F U' R U' F R' F R'

You only have one attempt to solve this. Please post your time and also your general average.

This is supposed to be a very bad scramble. I believe that for this scramble, optimal first face is 5 moves (HTM) and optimal first layer is 6 moves (HTM), which is the worst I've ever come across. Also something else slightly interesting: I think optimal first 1x1x2 block is 4 moves (QTM) which I think is also quite bad :p

If you can sub 3 with your first attempt, I'll be amazed.

2.58 first attempt, my general average is probably 2.2ish

Yay I amazed Rob Yau :D

x2 U R U' R2 U' R2 (6)
U2 R U' y' R2 F2 U' F U2 (8/14)
5.43 tps :/

Chris will probably sub2 it...

Edit: uberCuber's face cancelled into EG-1 gives:
y2 F' U R U2 R' F2 U F' R F' U2 (11)
Good solution :)

Bonus points for not using EG1 :p

I didn't see that 5 move face at all, on the first time I tried it. Also I guess I probably didn't test it out that well with cube explorer.
