An unofficial Best of 2 round of 3x3x3 Team Blindfolded will be taking place between 12:00 and 12:30.

Each team will consist of two competitors: the Solver and the Caller. A hybrid of the regulations for 3x3x3 Cube and 3x3x3 Blindfolded event, with a few additional regulations, will be used.

  • Both the Solver and Caller come to the solving station when their team is called.
  • The Solver dons the blindfold before the inspection phase and must not remove the blindfold until after the solving phase is over.
  • 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, 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.

Holding a successful competition requires decidated volunteers. For this competition, each round of an event has room for 2-6 scramblers, 12 judges, and 2-4 runners.

No experience is necessary for judging and running – we can teach you how to do these tasks if you are interested. This is a great opportunity for family members of competitors to be involved without competing.

If you are a high school student looking to obtain volunteer hours as a graduation requirement, you must volunteer for at least half of the competition in order for us to sign your volunter hour sheets.

Time limit

If you reach the time limit during your solve, the judge will stop you and your result will be DNF (see Regulation A1a4).


The result to beat to proceed to the second phase of a combined round (see Regulation 9g).
