Heard you had beaten me but with a slower time than this, guess you decided to improve the record more before posting. Good work!

I'm so amazed that someone can memorize a megaminx in under 10 minutes. Now you're under 9. Fantastic!

#### cmhardw

Well this is a little insane.

Can someone tell me how much you have to memorize to do this? I want to solve a puzzle blindfolded before I solve it with my eyes open. So I'm caught between Skewb, Sq-1, 6x6, and Megaminx. Maybe Clock but I hate clock. I never want to solve one.

To me, the easiest out of the first 4 you mentioned would be skewb. I don't really know how to go about blindfold solving a skewb, but it doesn't have that many pieces compared to the others.

you will have to memorize one metric assload of information.

How do you know you hate clock if you've never even solved one?

Skewb - easy
Clock - easy
6x6 - easy (but much), you can propably do it when you can do a 4x4.
Square-1 - hard, especially if you have never solved one with eyes open
Megaminx - never tried, but I can't think of an easy way to do it.

Oh right, amazing accomplishment Liliya!

This is confusing me. I agree that doing this is cool, but amazing? We have people memorizing a 5x5x5 with 92 pieces in under 3 minutes. A Megaminx with 50 pieces should easily be doable in under 2 minutes by top blindfolders, given sufficient practise with the puzzle. So I definitely find this cool, because I can imagine how hard it is to not lose track duribg execution on that puzzle, but it does not surprise/amaze me when comparing it to how other puzzles are blindfolded these days.

But megaminx only has 2 kind of pieces: with 60 stickers for each set (instead of the 24 you have in a cube) you can't use a standard alphabet-based memo system (well, it depends on the alphabet). I can't think of a memo system that uses less than two letters per piece on a megaminx (I've never tried to solve it BLD though).

Well even if we use 2 letters/piece that's just a little more than in 5bld so should be easily doable in less than 5minutes for top blders if they practised megabld.

The accomplishment is still really amazing tough.
The execution part is the part that I find most amazing in this solve. Executing megabld is really horrible. I have tried...

Good job man
