TNoodle-WCA-0.12.0 is now available from https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/scrambles/

The following changes have been made since TNoodle 0.11.5:

  • TNoodle now generates additional FMC scramble cutout sheets and a black and white solution sheet (in separate files). These can be used to reduce the number of expensive color prints.
  • Added support for 3x3x3 Multi-Blind with multiple groups and attempts. In the past, WCA Delegates had to generate multiple groups to generate scrambles for multiple attempts.
  • Fixed a TNoodle user interface bug.

Please remember that official competitions must use the current version of the official scramble program. This is always available from:
