This thread is similar to The "Example Solve" Game! thread, but focusing only on Roux solves. We previously talked about this in the Roux Help and Discussion thread. That thread remains for detailed discussions and ideas, this thread is focusing on the solves and solutions. The main purpose is to help each other and to learn from the solves of others.

So, I give a scramble, and write down your own Roux solution. The solution can either be a "first try solution", which means you would do that during a regular speedsolve (or you can even do an actual speedsolve and reconstruct your solution); or you can do a Roux style FMC (e.g., searching for the best second block, experimenting with LSE around, and so on). But please note what type of solution you found.

Unlike in the Example Solve Game thread, please write down a new scramble only after a few days after the previous one; so many people can write down their solutions for the same scramble.

Note that this is not an FMC contest (although you can try ). There is no shame in a long solution, especially when you are a beginner. Moreover, the others can help you to cut down those long moves! Also, feel free to suggest other alternatives to others!

And most of all, have fun!

Okay, here is my first try solution, 45 STM. Block colors: red bottom, yellow left.

F' r' F // 1x2x2 (3)

R U' r2 B // FB (4)

M' U M r' U' // 1x2x2 (5)

R U' M U r U' r' // SB (7)

U R2' U' R F R' U R2 U' R' F' R // CMLL (12)

U' M U2 M' U2 M' U M' U // EO + UL/UR in one step (9)

M U2 M' U2 M2 // M-perm (5)

With a 10 minutes playing and searching, here is a 36 STM solution, with the same colors:

z2 x

B r b' // 1x2x2 (3)

U2 B' U B' // FB (4). U2 B2 is shorter, but with this I get a corner-edge pair for SB

U2 R U' F R' F' // 1x2x2 (6). Also pairing the last corner and edge

U2 R // SB (2)

U2 R2' U' R F R' U R2 U' R' F' r // CMLL (12). In the end, r = R M' (starting the EO)

U M // EO (2)

U M2 U' // UL/UR (3)

x M2 U2 M2 U2 // M-perm (4). Normally do M' U2 M2 U2 M', but this is shorter

Also another 35 STM solution, still the same colors:

z2 x

B r b' // 1x2x2 (3)

U2 B' U B' // FB (4)

U2 R U' r U // 1x2x2 (5)

r2 U r U2 r' U' M' // SB (7). M' = r R' (starting the CMLL)

U' R U' R' U2 R // CMLL with preserving EO (6)

U' M' U2 M U M2 U// UL/UR (7). U' U2 merged into U

M U2 M' // M-perm (3)
