Registration form


You can access the Registration form here - https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScHgNb079CR-GIU8zsHS1itfmja...

Non-Google Registration Form


Dear friends, we have an alternate registration form that we prepared for Chinese solvers to access, but that can be used by anyone who doesn't have access to or doesn't prefer google too. Here's the link to the same - https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FJRNV7R

This will be a lot of hours of fun. Thanks to everyone involved in this project.

Will November 21st be definitely the last day for solving? If there are requests for an extension of the deadline, is it intended to meet that? I think it's fair that we know that right now so that we can make the best possible schedule for ourselves.

We will offer a clear response to this soon, we are discussing it.

I agree that this will definitely be hours and hours of fun.

Initially I thought that the 10 days time frame would be enough to leisurely enjoy everything. But it looks like, to enjoy this fully and attempt every round, more time would be needed to most competitors, like me, who are beginners to this level of puzzling and also have busy schedule otherwise too. So it might be good if the organizers, extend the time limit by another week, upto 28th, to include 3 week-ends, so that more number of competitors would attempt the competition in full. Knowing about the extension now before the competition begins rather than on the last day of the competition works best for scheduling purposes.

Our motives here are to simultaneously provide a good challenge for the world's best competitors and also allow other solvers to have a fun 10 days of solving and interacting. To that end, we may look at a slight extension (e.g. a day) so that 2 weekends are completely used, and that is what we are discussing. A week isn't on the cards unfortunately - please consider that the convention is going to take a huge load on the website and also on the people supervising things. Also remember that the puzzles will be available for you to try out after the event too.

We have shared an alternate registration form (a few posts above) so that participants who don't use google for whatever reason can access it. Please fill this OR the google form before participating.

The main competition part is now available!

Please use this or one of the main threads for general queries but use the round specific threads for post contest discussion. All "Discussion Thread" links from the submission pages go to their specific rounds.

All the best to everyone!

Note: Minor error in the key of a Puzzle in Round 10 is fixed. Since only 2 people attempted it so far, we will amend those results and let it stay. Apologies to those two participants.

I am seeing something confusing to me. In Temple of Sudoku (Part 4) Instruction booklet, puzzle 6, it shows numbers on the outside of the large cube and says that number is the number of digits of that parity within that line as the first number going inward, as I understand it. But in row 6 of that example puzzle, each side has an odd number as a starting number, and the "parity" number is 1, but there is a 1:3 string in that row. Also in column 3, same question -shouldn't that be a 2 for each of those rows or columns? Thanks for taking the time to answer! I'm new to this, and trying to understand the rules.

Hi! I'm not 100% sure I fully understood what you said. The outside digit being X means that the first X number of that direction has the same parity, and the (X+1)th number has a different parity. So, for example, in row 6, when you look from the left, the first digit is 7 (odd), and the second digit is 6 (even), which is of different parity from the first digit. So the outside number should be 1 from that direction, and similarly if you look from the right.

Let me know if this clears it up for you!

For those of us who will not have time to do all the puzzle competitions during the allotted time period, but would like to be able to do the puzzles afterwards at our "leisure," will the puzzles still be accessible online after the Puzzle Convention ends? I would like not to have to open each puzzle competition just to print the puzzles, and then score zero in most of them. That would be embarrassing!

New Features


- Completed Time Trials can now be done unofficially.
- The progress page now has two new columns, one will contain Puzzle Booklets of completed rounds, and the other contains the passwords to open them with.
- The Hall of Fame page now has a link (under the WSC header and the WPC header respectively) to complete results for each of Sudoku and Puzzles. If you have completed all rounds of Sudoku, you will be able to see the scores as well, otherwise just the ranks, and same for Puzzles.
- The results pages of completed Time Trials are now public and can be viewed without any restriction. You can quickly navigate to them via the Progress page by clicking on the respective round link and then clicking the results at the top left of the submission page.
- The cooldown period for all live results pages is dropped down to 1 hour. However, please still be mindful of frequent refreshes impacting the load on the website.

Happy puzzling!

Considering there was frequent activity during this time on the LMI site, we do not know what happened unfortunately. We hope it doesn't happen again and you're able to enjoy the remainder of the event.

I have completed all the Puzzle rounds, but cannot see the scores (there are "-" everywhere). Do you have an idea, why?

If you checked immediately, it may be because that page takes around 30 minutes at a time to periodically refresh. Try again a little later. If you still can't see it, report that to us again. Thanks.
