This thread is for ideas of fun twisty puzzle games you can play with multiple people (2, 3 or more). Bonus points if it works well for people at different speeds or abilities.

One idea I did with my 2 kids is a 3x3 layer by layer relay. We all solved layer one, then passed the cube to the left, solved the next layer, passed to the left, etc.
Not the most amazing game, what do you have?
Another obvious game is a straight race (with a time handicap for someone). Let's get more creative.

I'm pretty sure what you are playing is called Cube Factory, and it is a common social event at competitions

Similar to yours, you can also solve a cube step by step. (Cross, pair1, pair2 or FB, SB...) More creative ideas are "team BLD"(One person holds the cube and the other gives the instructions) or "team OH"(Basically 2H but 2 people holds the cube with 1 of their hands)

Nice! I've never been to a comp, so I don't know what sort of things people get up to.

You could chain this and have everyone cross arms and solve half of a cube with right hand on their left and another with their left hand on their right.
Also I imagine you could a challenge version of team OH where you can't say anything to each other, and hope you both know the same algs.
