3x3x3 TEAM BLIND
3x3x3 Team Blind will consist of 2 partners who are working together to solve the puzzle.

The format will be Mean of 3 and consist of 3 attempts where after each attempt, the Solver and Caller switch positions. This ends up where 1 person will be the Solver twice.

The 32 people will be all of the competitors who made the official 3x3x3 Round 2.
