If I am not mistaken, Mensch ärgere dich nicht is a game you play against each other and has a fixed starting position. I really don't see how I could fit that in the weekly competition so I am not going to make that a votable option.

And there is no reason you have to chose between events, you can vote for multiple events to be added.

I vote against any more events, there are just WAY too many now in my opinion. How can I also do feetcubing and bloody multi BLD and clock?? Should I quit school and give my life to the weekly contest? :p
yes :)

Seriously, there is no need to do all events every week. I might be the person that has done the most solves in all competitions last year, but I haven't learned 4x4x4_bf and 5x5x5_bf last year just so I could get more points. And I am not planning on doing multi_blind every week either (just sometimes).

Yea, I kinda don't want anymore events to be included because it already takes quite awhile to do like 1/2 of the events. I only voted for the 2,3,4 relay because I don't own a 5x5, haha.

I agree. Having all the events there makes me want to do them, and doing them all takes a VERY long time, especially for someone who may be slower at some events...This may be some incentive to go faster though :p Hahaha...

It's hard to get fast at all the events at the same time, haha

I should really start to do them. I would only do 3x3, fmc in like 2min and get 50moves, 3x3OH, and pyraminx. Scrambling 4x4 is too much of a pain already.

I decided I want to suggest scrambled Magic. It should be possible to come up with a notation for scrambling - surely a "flipping-only" scrambling method can be come up with that will get to a large percentage of the significant possible permutations.

I think this would be great fun! The only problem is that at first I would probably have some solves that were very fast, and others that took many minutes to solve. But it would probably result in getting very good at unscrambling a magic, if we had to do 5 solves every week.
