  • To begin the inspection phase, the judge removes the cover.
  • During the inspection phase, the Caller may inspect the puzzle and call out verbal instructions.
  • The Caller must place the puzzle onto the mat before 15 seconds of inspection has elapsed.
  • The Solver must begin the stackmat timer before 15 seconds of inspection have elapsed.
  • During the solving phase, the judge will not hold an additional opaque object.
  • During the solving phase, the Caller must not touch the puzzle or the Solver. Penalty: DNF.
  • During the solving phase, the Solver and Caller may verbally communicate with each other.
  • During the solving phase, if the Solver pops the puzzle, the Caller may verbally assist, but not physically assist, the Solver in finding the puzzle parts and reassembling the puzzle.
  • To end the solving phase, the Solver places the solved puzzle onto the mat and stops the stackmat timer.
