With 3x3WF most likely being removed from the World Cube Association list of events, we could see some more changes in the next couple of years. Samuel Baird, CuberCubes, and I discuss possible ideas for adding/removing events and naming competitions. Then we discuss the fake Speedcubeshop.co.uk store and how the real SpeedCubeShop.com is dealing with it.
I chat with Max and Matt about the differences in the cubing communities and competition around the world. Then we discuss some puzzle hardware.
The Square-1 and 2×2 WR’s were broken recently along with the Multi-BLD NAR. I went to a fun competition last weekend and I share some audio clips I recorded while there. Later I give some shoutouts, talk about updates with the podcast, and have Alg of the Week.
Most of the CubingUSA Regional Championships took place earlier this year. I talk with three WCA delegates who organized the Northeast, Southeast, and Western Championships.
