# [Unofficial]Guildford challenge in 5:20.28 (3 man team)

Copied from description:

Ok so, Daniel thought of a new challenge. The aim is to complete one solve for each official event in which you can attain an average in, with your team, as fast as possible. (This excludes magic and master magic.) Only one person needs to complete a solve for each individual event. This is our best attempt so far, we predicted we could get sub 5 if we practised just a bit more...

These events are: 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7, OH, Feet, Mega, Pyra, Sq-1, Clock

Team: Daniel (kinch2002), James (mollerz), Me

Events covered by each individual and times (in order of completion):

Daniel: 6x6 (3:22), Feet (1:10?), Sq-1 (0:36), 2x2 (0:07)
James: Mega (2:08), 5x5 (1:57), OH (0:39), 3x3 (0:20), Clock (0:10)
Me: 7x7 (4:21), 4x4 (0:49), Pyraminx (0:09)

Basically, our strategy was to take care of the events which take the most time as soon as possible then work our way down to the smaller puzzles.

The obvious thing to do now is to work out, based on official averages, who would be the best team of 3 at doing this.

That looks fun! I cant wait to do it.

I think Daniel might have proposed some of the best solutions whilst we were chatting. From what I can remember Lin Chen is a necessity

Just picture Feliks, Kevin Hays, and Sebastian Weyer doing that.
That would be great.

The fastest team would have to have one phenomenal big cuber, one really good big cuber who is also good at all puzzles, and someone who is fast at feet, mega, and square 1.

I am thinking something like

Kevin Hays: 7x7(3:00), 4x4(35)= 3:35
Felik's Zemdegs: 6x6(2:10), 5x5(55), Square-1(15)= 3:30
Simon Westlund: Megaminx(45), Feet(1:00), Pyraminx(5), 3x3(10), 2x2(4), Clock(10), and OH(15)= 3:29

Could work I guess.

Why not give Kevin 6x6 and Feliks 4x4, 2x2, and OH?

I tried to make it so that they finish at nearly the same time. Also it would be slower to have them do there WR puzzles ironically.

This should be an annual tradition, like the inter-university and the negative time solving.

is it right?

Another fun thing I would be useless for

Well if you can find two other teammates, you guys could try Guildford Challenge: BLD edition! Good luck

#### kinch2002

This was the best solution I found, using official averages rounded to the nearest second. I'm moderately sure that it's optimal.
2 Yu 00:03
3 Lin 00:10
4 Yu 00:36
5 Faz 00:57
6 Faz 02:00
7 Lin 02:57
OH Faz 00:13
p Yu 00:04
s Yu 00:19
m Yu 00:57
c Yu 00:08
feet Yu 00:56

Faz 03:10
Lin 03:07
Yu 03:03
Finish time 03:10

#### JasonK

I got 3:10 as well with Lin, Faz and Simon. Can't see how you'd get much better than that.

EDIT: Just remembered I truncated the times rather than rounding them, so Daniel wins

Is multi-tasking allowed? Like, doing something at the same time as feet. This is cool, we should do it as unofficial event at comps. I also wanna do BLD version at Edinburgh Open, who wants to join me?
