This is a quiet events competition. We will NOT be holding usual events like 3x3. If you are a new competitor or are in a regular competition, this probably isn't for you, and you may want to check out other local competitions. Spectators may attend for free, but you are likely to get bored very quickly as the events held are quite slow. We have a competitor cap of 30 people. More information is available on the "Registration & Payments" tab. Please note that this competition is NOT held in the same room as previous FMC and quiet competitions at WPI.

We have a cap of 30 competitors. In order to register, you must register on this website, and that's all! If you are still on the waitlist a few days after paying, please contact the delegate.
When registering, please be sure to indicate any needs that require special accomodations you may have in the comments section. If we know this in advance, we are better able to serve you.
We are sponsored by Cube Depot. They will be giving prizes to the winners, but will not be vending at the competition.
“Your Choice” on the schedule means that you may do a 4x4 Blindfolded, 5x5 Blindfolded, or 3x3 Multiple Blindfolded attempt. You cannot do more than 3 attempts of a particular event (for example, you can do 4BLD for the first three “Your Choice” slots but you cannot do more 4BLD after.
There are no cutoffs. The time limits are as follows:
3x3 Blindfolded - 20 minute cumulative cutoff
FMC - 1 hour
3x3 Multiple Blindfolded - 10 minutes times the number of cubes or one hour, whichever is less
4x4 Blindfolded and 5x5 Blindfolded - 50 minutes
If you are competing in a “Your Choice” event, you must bring up your cube(s) during the previous event so that we have ample time to scramble.
We may be providing lunch. This information will be confirmed closer to the event. There are several restaurants on Highland Avenue (5 minutes from the venue), including a pizza place (Tech Pizza). There is also an on-campus dining option: buying food from the Campus Center (soups, sandwiches, burritos, etc).
Please click here for a campus map. The event takes place in Salisbury Labs (labelled #29 on the map) on the fourth floor.
If you are travelling to the competition by car, you should park in the Park Ave garage. A parking pass will be emailed to everyone when registration closes, and you will need to print it out and place it on your car.
There is a train running from Boston that comes in at 8:10am, and there are several return trains. More information can be found here.
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).
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.
