To new competitors or those of you who have no knowledge of blindfolded events/fewest moves challenge:

This competition will have no "normal" events! The only event at this competition where you are permitted to solve a puzzle with your eyes opened will be Fewest Moves Challenge, but the end goal of this event makes it very different from the more common WCA events. The one thing these events all have in common: everybody is required to stay very quiet while anybody else is competing (hence the competition name).
If it is your first time competing in Fewest Moves or any blindfolded event, please make sure you are familiar with the WCA regulations regarding these events before the day of the competition. The regulations can be found below:

Blind solving: https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/#article-B-blindfolded
Fewest Moves solving: https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/#article-E-fewest-moves

If you don't want to compete in any of these events but would still like to come and watch, that is totally fine, as long as you make sure to remain quiet out of respect for the competitors. Any noise or distractions can ruin an attempt for someone, so anybody causing major disruptions during Fewest Moves or any of the blindfolded events will be asked to leave.

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).
A cumulative time limit may be enforced (see Regulation A1a2).
A cumulative time limit may be enforced across rounds (see Guideline A1a2++).

Format

The format describes how to determine the ranking of competitors based on their results. The list of allowed formats per event is described in Regulation 9b. See Regulation 9f for a description of each format.
