Blindfolded events will be held in a separate (quiet) room. It will be the competitor's responsibility to find time in between other events to do their attempt. All three 3x3x3 Blindfolded attempts should be done consecutively.

¹ In a ‘Combined’ round, you must get a result below the cut-off within your first two attempts to be able to complete an Average of 5, or a result below the cut-off on your first attempt to be able to complete a Mean of 3.
² If the solve time exceeds the 'Time-limit', the competitor will be asked to stop and the result will be a DNF. If the cut-off or time-limit are not specified, it is assumed to be 10:00.

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).
