Here is my latest one-page, info-sheet. This one is to help beginners as a start to Roux.

my goals, as usual, are:

a small number of algorithms

a decently low move count

This one is called... "New-to-Roux" (NtR)

it suggests about 16 algorithms and can be done in as few as 60 moves!

There are 3 major steps:

1. Block Building, starting in a sort of Salvia way, but users can have leeway in this intuitive first step.

The two 1x2x3 blocks are set up with purposely out-of-place slot-pairs and can be completed in a decent 28 moves.

2. LL corners, using algs in only 6 basic structures to orient then permute them in about 16 moves.

This can be useful for someone before learning full, 42-alg, CMLL.

3. Last 6 Edges - about 18 moves

For orientation, I broke the 9 patterns down into cases that use just 5 basic "alg" sequences.

Then 2-step permutation using around 10 moves.

The longest algs (for corners) will already be familiar to someone coming from a CFOP background.

These other Roux-specfic concepts are not new, just laid out for folks that are New to Roux!

I'm excited to show how a beginner method with learnable intuition and a low number of algs can still achieve 60-move solves!

let me know your thoughts, as thinking about it from a beginners point of view.
