This is a "quick" relay I have been doing to improve on the WCA events. It is pretty fun and for those who like the 2-7 relay they will probably enjoy this.
(no magics incorporated)

So here is the relay:

-3x3 BLD always first. Then order doesn't matter.
1. 2x2
2. 3x3
3. 4x4
4. 5x5
5. 6x6
6.7x7
7. Megaminx
8. Clock
9. Sq 1
10. Pyraminx.
11. OH 3x3

Its pretty fun. Give it a try.

Every Sunday or Saturday in the U.S. (Central time) I will add scrambles. To be able to compete in a week you must have your relay solve time in by or on Tuesday Central time.

Could a moderater close the poll?

I will post scrambles weekly for those who want to particpate. Follow the WCA rules. 15's total time for inspection.
Have fun.

I hope you realise how few people have 12 3x3, or are ever likely to have the means to get hold of 12 of them. If you really want to have 12 3x3s in there, the rules should be changed so that everyone has to scramble (with the clock still running) in between each 3x3 (apart from the first)

It's funny that you're posting this - we all know you have enough! (cough - multiBLD - cough)

A pity there isn't a requirement for 12 square-1s instead - then I'd have it made. :)

Fixed :p
Also, you're right there, but I'm amongst a privileged few who do own that many :)
Clearly more people should be interested in the wonderful event of multiBLD. Also, there might be more than you think, with some people trying out the various types of cube that might end up with quite a few 3x3s, although 12 is maybe a bit of a push.

As it happens, I have sufficient hardware but insufficient time (and no inclination to regularly do sq-1, clock, or pyraminx).

Changes to this thread

Should read the entire post

yes I've realized there is a lot of 3x3.
Answer to a q's: I am trying to get better at 3x3 the most. I just happen to with my Entire collection 12 3x3's. I thought it was cool to do an average of 12 in a relay, also.

I will add the following.
-OH
-3x3 bld (although some people can't. You guys tell me I guess)

The requirement for 3x3 will be either 5 or 1 or something in between. (I will post a poll.)

If you have any other suggestions feel free to let out your opinion.
Thank You
