Logic Masters India (LMI) is conducting the Indian Puzzle Championship (IPC) 2023 on May 27th, 2023, and the Indian Sudoku Championship (ISC) 2023 on May 28th, 2023. The venue for the double event is:
Hotel Mumbai House
Address: Andheri - Kurla Rd, opposite Courtyard Marriot, Dr. Charatsingh Colony, S B Singh Colony, J B Nagar, Andheri East, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400093
While we do not have the number of rounds, etc. for ISC or IPC yet, the format of the event will follow a similar structure to previous years. Day 1 will have the IPC competitive rounds, followed by Puzzle Ramayan Playoffs for eligible solvers, followed by a small casual puzzle event. Day 2 will have the ISC competitive rounds, followed by Sudoku Mahabharat Playoffs for eligible solvers, followed by a small casual Sudoku event. Expect the main competition to have 4-5 rounds as always.
The top 60 of the SM online rounds will be invited for ISC. The top 60 of PR online rounds will be invited for IPC. Participants who are only eligible on the Sudoku side may register for both days. Participants who are only eligible on the Puzzles side must wait till 27th April to get confirmation that they may register for both days. For now, they may register for just the Puzzle side. They may also indicate interest to attend the Sudoku date, so that later if/when slots become available, they can still avail the combination discount. Also, note that if we get no approach or indication of interest by 7th May, it may be difficult to get slots after that even for those in the top 60.
Registration is a two-step process.
