Double moves should have 200% possibility of accuring because R2 and R2' is the same.
Is this already the case with normal scramblers?

I'm pretty sure they're scripted to only include the clockwise 180° turns for that very reason.

Cube scramblers aren't generated at random. They're coded to prevent things like that. Otherwise 7x7x7 scrambles may be like 3U 2U2 U' 2U 3U' 2U U2 3U2 and so on.

I will follow up your post with one of my own. I have been wondering the same thing and i still haven't found what i'm looking for. Could someone please figure it out. I a little while I'm sure someone will come one step closer to unlocking this puzzles mysterious ways. I'm kind of bad at figuring this stuff out, just the thought gives me vertigo.


Sorry I couldn't resist :mrgreen:

I am looking for a scrambler where there is a 200% chance of seeing a "2" while avoiding cancellations.
