Megaminx VHLS (edge): Help me

No, I’m not crazy. I’m just collecting the simpler algs, the easy to recognize & learn ones (and the ones for those few cases you see, recognize, and then just DNF the solve to save yourself the effort).

Sometimes Quantity is Quality

10 Rubik’s cubes. R550 (+/-40USD). 20 sec. solves??

Apparently so.

The Box of Opportunity (possibly)

The uninformed middle-range cuber faces many challenges, starting with homework then gear and working up to international lockdown.

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it, but I picked speedcubing again last year.

Random Puzzle (Sept) Part III

This is the 3rd (obviously) part of the September Random Puzzle. It’s going to be simple, and then take you to the end! Yes, I was feeling a bit lazy.

Random Puzzle (Sept) Part II

This is the 2nd part of what I hope will be a month long puzzle of codes and ciphers. See the first before trying this, unless you can crack running key ciphers without any hints.

This part of the puzzle only has two… I could say two parts, or I could say two puzzles. Which is worse?

Random Puzzle (Sept) Part I

Keyword ciphers are fun. Most treasure-hunt riddles are. Running key ciphers are a nightmare to manually crack without the key.

Codes and Ciphers 4

I don’t think that this actually counts as a cipher, but it might be that it doesn’t count as a code. Possibly both. You decide.

I use this as a very quick way to disguise words. Don’t ask why or what sort. It is very easy to write and read on the fly. I just want to see if you need to know how it works to figure it out. I came up with it myself, but it isn’t at all original. Try it.
