What is this page?
Good algs are scattered all over the internet, and often times it's really hard to find these awesome algs. I wanted to create a page to have lots of those websites in one place for easy access!
Creating your own algs:
- Cube Explorer: Cube explorer has been around for ages for creating algorithms. Solid choice. (3x3 only)
- Ksolve: Ksolve lets you create algs for everything else.
Whocouldthat.be Sorts out 3x3x3 algorithms and also can ignore pre AUF and post AUF
Alg.cubing.net: You can use alg.cubing.net to check solutions/algs to make sure they are correct before posting them.
How to learn algs faster:
- My video: I created a video talking about the concepts to learn algorithms faster. These are the key concepts to learning lots of algs.
- My website: you're on! Most of the best 2x2 algs are on this website.
- Ray has a TCLL+ document with some new algs that I haven't put on my site (due to being lazy).
- Sameer's EG-0/1/2 set: Sameer has full docs for CLL, EG-1, and EG-2. I'm not sure how up to date these algs are, but a good resource regardless.
- Algdb.net is a fantastic website for algs. It's a user based website where you can create an account and submit algs. There are TONS of algs on this website it's a fantastic resource for many 3x3 algorithms such as COLL, ZBLL, OLL, PLL, OH PLL, F2L algs, and so much more!
- Speedsolving wiki: This is a fantastic resource for beginners. Even outside of algorithms there's terminology, methods, explanation on various topics. It's very good. The algs on the wiki aren't all the best algs but it's a good place to check if you can't find something else where.
- Speedsolving request an alg thread: This is a thread on speedsolving where a user can request an alg and if someone has an alg for you, they will likely let you know about it. Good resource if you're looking for something very specific and can't find it.
- My website: I have a fair chunk of 3x3 algs from PLL, OLL, COLL, VLS, etc. Not the longest list, but definitely solid algs.
- Sarah.cubing.net: Sarah's website has LOTS of 3x3 resources. Winter variation for the pair on left and right, easy PLL skip cases, OLLCP, CLS, and tons more! Good place to learn some cool algs. She also has many other algs outside of just 3x3. Including mega, square 1, and pyra.
- Alg of the week: This is a YouTube series where I cover cool algs that I like and use. Lots of advanced algs in here.
- Cubesolv.es: This is a GREAT way to learn lots about 3x3. It's a reconstruction database of unofficial & official solves. And it's not only limited to 3x3. There's reconstructions of big cubes as well. Looking at peoples reconstructions is a great way to learn cool tricks.
- Google! Google is actually a FANTASTIC resource for finding algs and not enough people use it. If you search what you're looking for followed by "cubing" you can find just about anything. Like if you want OH PLL algs just search "OH PLL cubing algs" and Antoine's OH website is the first thing that comes up.
- Kians CMLL doc: A doc with CMLL algs.
- Waffo's Roux doc: Waffo has some nice resources on Roux for beginners and experienced cubers.
- Rowe's VLS page: As far as I'm aware, the first website to have had full VLS. While some of the algs are outdated, there's images for all the cases which makes it easy to figure out which case you're looking at.
- Jay's VLS doc: Jay has learned full VLS and found some nice algs for bad cases. Probably the most up to date alg set as of 10/23/2015.
- Jabari's oriented LS+LL: This is a subset where all your LL pieces are oriented except the F2L pieces that still need to be solved. Super easy to recognize.
- RLS 0 edges doc: This doc only has the 0 edge cases, but may be useful for some.
- Brooks Last Edge (BLE): Anthony has a PDF with all of his BLE algs. Very nice subset.
- Lucas Garron's MGLS algs: While some algs are out of date, this does have some nice and useful CLS cases on it still.
- Cale Schoon's WV in back doc: Just winter variation algs from the back.
Last layer subsets
- Pure OLL: Exactly as it sounds. These algs for all (except dot cases) of the pure OLL cases.
- Line: Line is a 1LLL subset where there is a 1x1x3 line some where on the cube. Easy for recognition.
- Flipped line: Same as above but more!
- Tripod: All LL cases with a 1x2x2 block.
- 2 U blocks: 2 U blocks is a 1LLL subset where there are two blocks on the U face. It makes recognition super easy and it comes in handy for skipping cases.
- Ben's pure OLL doc: More pure OLL algs.
- Ben's tripod doc: More tripod algs.
- Jon's Anti PLL: A 1LLL subset for 4 flip cases. You solve the 4 flip+PLL.
- Algdb.net OLLCP: Algdb.net has a wide variety of OLLCP algs.
- Rob Yau's OLLCP doc: While not updated anymore and some algs are outdated, still a good resource for OLLCP algs.
- Rob Yau's ZBLL doc: Although not updated anymore, there are still some nice algs that you can find in there.
- Jabari's ZBLL doc: Jabari has been learning/genning algs like CRAZY in 2015 and he has a full doc of ZBLL algs. He's spent quite a bit of time finding nice algs.
- Algdb.net ZBLL:Algdb.net has lots of ZBLL algs as well.
- Brant's insane doc of VLS, ZBLL, ZZF2L, and OH ZBLL
Antoine's OH website: Antoine is one of the best one handed solvers in the world and has a website with lots one handed resources. Definitely a good place to go if you need OH specific algs!
- Rob Yau's L2E algs: There aren't *that* many algs for 4x4, but Rob Yau's L2E cases come in super handy!
- Nathan Dwyer's 4x4 parity: These are cases that combined with the OLL parity alg will skip the OLL case.
- Meep's website: Meep has a FANTASTIC website for all the L2E and L2C cases for 5x5.
- Sarah.cubing.net: Sarah's website also has L2E and L2C algs.
- Skewbers: Skewbers is a Facebook group for people who are interested in skewb. There are tons of resources in the stickied post and you can talk to other Skewbers and ask how they would approach certain cases
- NS 2.0: This doc is in Spanish, but if you use Google Chrome it should offer to translate it for you.
- The ultimate guide to FMC: Porkynator created a fantastic guide to lots of the key FMC techniques. A great read for someone wanting to get into it.
- FMC seminar nats 2015: This was a seminar at nats 2015 and is a great place to start for people wanting to understand more about FMC.
- Speedsolving FMC thread: A speedsolving thread fully dedicated to FMC. Lots of people post their solutions here and have discussions about them. A great resource for learning more about FMC.
- Speedsolving Square 1 help thread: This thread has loads of useful and relevant links for SQ1.
- Jaap's website: While many things on this site are out of date, the cube shape is a very nice resource.
- Stefan and Kenneth's mega site: This website has mega PLLs, OLLs, and a few other methods. Very nice resource for mega LL.
- Sarah's mega page: This is a more basic page, just for OCLL cases.
- SirWaffles website: Couple of nice algs/resources on this site.
