About World Sudoku_PLUS_Puzzle Convention 2021

This is the landing page for the World Sudoku_PLUS_Puzzle Convention 2021, an online event organized to fill in the gap after the postponed WSC & WPC.

The competitive part resembles the World Sudoku Championship format with 8 independent rounds for sudoku and 10 for puzzles. This part will be open for the whole ten days and you may start the rounds whenever you want and in any order.

We also encourage you to take part in the side events like interview panels with top solvers and authors, trivia quiz and bonus puzzle contests.

Keep puzzling and have fun!
