Mini-scrambleds is a family of 6 manipulation patterns founded by jugglers in Enschede in 2022. They are related to the scrambled series by Aiden Burns.

You can find a notation and explanation in a more theoretical and more practical version. The theory is fun but by no means required to be able to juggle the pattern.

**List of the 6 Mini-Scrambled Patterns:**

cA iA (donkey)

cC iB (back-up)

cB iC (tosti / swiss knife)

iA cC (sunny side up)

iB cB (ebay)

iC cA (mini V)

**Theory:**

The Mini-scrambleds are a result of the experiment to simplify the scrambleds. Whether they actually are easier is debatable but at least they are shorter.

As the scrambleds, the mini-scrambleds are based on a 2-count vs 4-count feed with rotating positions. Opposing to the scrambleds it consists of only two passes before it repeats again (A-B and A-C).

The manipulation consists of a carry and in intercept. Since there are only 2 beats in the mini-scrambleds the substitute that you would find in a scrambled is left out.

Since we can chose the position of the intercept (A,B or C) and it’s beat (1 or 2) there are 6 possible variations for the mini-scrambled. (As with the scrambled the position of the carry is dependent on the intercept.)

**The actual juggling:**

All mini-scrambleds are 10-club, 4-person patterns with 3 passers and one manipulator.

The manipulation pattern has 8 beats (only the throws from the right hand are counted, so actually 16 throws) until it repeats again. That means you only have to remember 8 steps. Those you can see in the table underneath or in the videos. The shirts of the jugglers is colorcoded, so you can follow the notation easier. Red always starts on position A, blue on B, green on C, and yellow as manipulator.

P: Pass – the color refers to the Juggler the pass goes to

s: Self

c: Carry, this club is brought instead of thrown

pelf: A pass-self that is thrown to the manipulator without spin

-: only catching

-(i): only catching/receiving – This is the intercept
