https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SB9oXZ6NzEQ&list=PL_awKdiInNyhjIPflG...
A fascinating look into the minds of Japanese solvers, how they view puzzles vs Sudoku, logic vs intuition, and even fun tidbits like their favourite anime and music - This was an excellent interview conducted by Byron Calver, and we thank Ken Endo, Kota Morinishi, Ryotaro Chiba and Hideaki Jo for being a part of it.

Hi Wei-Hwa,

The Trivia Quiz is still under construction (apologies). Two things I can say now are that:

1. It will be on Kahoot.
2. It will mostly (or only) contain questions related to WSPC, including past WSPC facts, this year's event, Sudokus, Puzzles, and people who have participated in WSPC.

Let me know if you have more questions I can answer. And I will continue to work on the Trivia Quiz!

Are you going to publish complete results of all 8 rounds? I mean filled-in grids. Just as you did in Grand Prix. Thanks
