I gave him a 10 second head start and things got very interesting!

Did he beat me? I suppose the honest answer is we will never know for sure, the drop at the end of the first solve was out of frame. the second solve, well lets forget about that right?

A speedcuber tries my win £20 if I don't solve in under 20 seconds challenge | speedcubing.org

At my stall in Sutton I challenged a local speedcuber (who averages around 20 seconds) to my challenge, he simply did superflip into checkerboard which is meant to be the hardest scramble if you (like me) don't know how to reverse it.

I had my stall selling speedcubes and promoting speedcubing at Wesminster Cathedral Piazza yesterday, unfortunately I did not qualify for the national final this time round, I feel it was probably because my stall was not much different to my stall in 2019, I would like to thank the NMTF for organising these events, they are very good for encouraging young traders, it is a shame that markets are not as successful as they used to be, hopefully that will soon change.

Diansheng magnetic 8x8x8 AND 9x9x9!

further to my previous announcement, Diansheng have now announced on their instagram that they will not only be making the first factory magnetic 8x8x8 but also the first factory magnetic 9x9x9! Theoretically this has the potential to completely change 8x8x8+ cubes as people will no longer need to magnetize them themselves, it is also likely to not be significantly more expensive than other 8x8x8s, as there is little competition, 8x8x8s are usually significantly more expensive than their 7x7x7 equivalent but maybe this could change?   View this post on Instagram A post shared by @dianshengtoys

This new cube from YJ was originally thought to be a smartcube but we now know that it will simply be another 3x3x3 release, a new flagship from YJ, it appears to have weird sunken centre caps but I will withhold judgement on that until I have actually tried it for myself.
