For the WCA board i had a thought, i read a post about why the Rubik's magic is not an official event anymore. Well it said because it takes know skill and it is relativity the same each time. Well your definitions of a puzzle is and mass produced puzzle created by Erno Rubik's well if magic isn't an event then why is Rubik's Clock? Thanks, PhoenixCubing

And 3^3 speedsolve ? :) Seriously, magic and master magic got removed for two main reasons: - once you know the standard solution, it's not puzzle solving anymore, only a dexterity contest; - they regularly ended up in weird positions which were really a pain in the *** to judge, especially by inexperienced judges.
