1 | 2 5x5x5 Cube 1 Square-1 4 4x4x4 Cube 1 Rubik's Cube 3 2x2x2 Cube | Mátyás Kuti | Total time: 1 hour 3 minutes 55,26 seconds Memorization time: 25-26 minutes It was hard. | 20070819 |

2 | 2 5x5x5 Cube | Mike Hughey | Total time (including memorization): 1:11:40.76 Memorization: 41:30 Practicing for Chattahoochee. I've found that doing these multis really helps you get faster with single solves. Now I'll have to try 3! | 20080325 |

3 | 1 5x5x5 Cube 1 4x4x4 Cube 4 Rubik's cubes 3x3x3 1 2x2x2 Cube | Marcus Stuhr | Total time (including memorization): 3 hours 12 minutes Figuring out better memorization methods is the key to doing these things more quickly. Executing moves is simple enough when you know where everything is. I learned better orientation/permutation algorithms for the 3x3x3 cubes specifically (allowing for faster execution, which works well in addition to better memorization methods). The 4x4x4 cube is actually not all that more difficult than a 3x3x3. The 5x5x5 still poses a challenge, mainly because of the center pieces (there are so many of them!). 2x2x2s are just 3x3x3s without the edges in the first place :P My main advice, however, is to become more efficient in memorizing the cube layout. That will bring down the times. | 20051206 |

5 | 1 5x5x5 Cube 1 4x4x4 Cube 2 Rubik's cubes 3x3x3 1 2x2x2 Cube | Marcus Stuhr | Total time (including memorization): 5 hours 25 minutes 16 seconds Oh my GOD this felt great!! After seeing Richard Carr's record I just had to shoot for it. The 3x3x3 and 2x2x2 cubes take, really, very little effort to do. Their permutations and orientations are quite easy to simplify, but when you get into the larger cubes, that is when extra precaution must be taken. I started with the 5x5x5 just to get it out of the way, then worked my way down. Those 2x2x2's just get hammered timewise :) I spent an absurd amount of time ensuring that I had them all memorized before starting (virtually 2 hours). If I can find some way to simplify memorization on larger cubes then hopefully I can cut this time down a bit. I am in the process of making a website that explains exactly what I do, so helpfully this shall help. | |

6 | 1 5x5x5 Cube 1 4x4x4 Cube 2 Rubik's cubes 3x3x3 | Richard Carr | Total time (including memorization): about 3 hours 9 minutes.

7 | 1 5x5x5 Cube 1 4x4x4 Cube 1 Rubik's Cube 1 2x2x2 Cube | Ville Seppänen | Total time: 35:16.77 Memorisation: 19 minutes. First attempt at any sort of relay, so I'm happy I got it right. Solving order was very random. I want to do this faster. | 20081219 |

7 | 1 5x5x5 Cube 1 4x4x4 Cube 1 Rubik's Cube 1 2x2x2 Cube | Mike Hughey | Total time: 59:08.47 Memorization: 34:35 Online competition - did the relay BLD. I finally got under an hour! But Rafal Guzewicz has done it in less than half an hour - I'm not half as good as him. | 20080626 |

13 | 1 4x4x4 Cube 3 Rubik's cubes 3x3x3 3 2x2x2 Cubes | Josh Berg | first try at this, it helped a crapload on my actual blind times | 20080626 |

14 | 1 4x4x4 Cube 2 Rubik's cubes 3x3x3 | Richard Carr | Solving time (not including memorization): 1 hour 28 minutes See my blindfold solving page. | |

15 | 1 4x4x4 Cube 1 Rubik's cubes 1 2x2x2 Cube | Mike Hughey | Total time: 21:39.78 Memorization: 12:24 I've been doing the weekly competition relays blindfolded just for fun. This was my first attempt at a 2x2x2 3x3x3 and 4x4x4. | 20080327 |

16 | 1 4x4x4 Cube 1 Rubik's Cube | Richard Carr | Total time (including memorization): >1 hour This is really hard and requires a lot of concentration. See my blindfold solving page. | |

17 | 2 Rubik's Cube 2 2x2x2 Cube | Dennis Strehlau | was just fun. will do more different cubes fpr this cathegory.at first learn solving the 4x4 blindfolded. | 20080103 |

18 | 2 Rubik's Cube 1 2x2x2 Cube | Dennis Strehlau | finally i did it. always made one mistake at one corner at ONE of the cubes.now i did it Mátyás.i am coming;) | 20070515 |

18 | 2 Rubik's Cube 1 2x2x2 Cube | Péter Trombitás | it was not so hard. time was 11:32, and I timed it with stackmat and with my phone. The stackmat switched off itself before I finished the execution. memo was 6:30. | 20090507 |

20 | 1 Rubik's Cube 2 2x2x2 Cubes | Alex Cook | Got in 2nd try. | 20080406 |

21 | 1 Rubik's Cube 1 2x2x2 Cube | Alex Kumaki | Total Time: 6:47 Memorisation: 4:05 Second try. | 20081119 |

21 | 1 Rubik's Cube 1 2x2x2 Cube | Alex Cook | Total time: 7:34 Memo: 4:15 This is only the beginning. ;) | 20080405 |

21 | 1 Rubik's Cube 1 2x2x2 Cube | Chris Hardwick | Total time (including memorization): 10 minutes 17 seconds I took about 5:30 to memorize, so the solving phase went fairly fast for me. Like Richard I prefer to solve the cubes in order of increasing difficulty. | |

24 | 1 Rubik's Cube 1 Pyraminx | Wuqiong Fan | I memorized the Cube in about 75 seconds, sleeped for 10 hours, woke up, memorized pyraminx in about 70 seconds, solved it in a total of 2min40seconds. Then waited another 11 hours before finally executing the cube in about 1min20seconds. I did memorize everything before I started solving. Next time I'll do this in one sitting, hopefully sub-6 min. | 20090106 |

25 | Skewb 2x2x2 Cube Pyraminx | Stefan Pochmann | Total time: 15 minutes 4 seconds (including memorization) Includes about 8:30 for memorization. Done in a bus. |
