Wellington Mind Games 2021 is an official World Cube Association (WCA) sanctioned speedcubing competition. It is focused on some of the more mentally demanding events, that are given less of a focus in normal competitions - blindfolded and fewest moves solving, specifically.

The competition is open to all competitors regardless of experience or skill. There will also be event-based time limits in place, to ensure we stay on schedule, especially given the time taken by fewest moves solving. No prior experience in WCA competitions is necessary, but competitors should be familiar with the WCA regulations.

The main event of this competition is Fewest Moves
