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!

Hi! All the puzzles will be available here after the competition ends. As said in the opening ceremony, please go with your flow, enjoy the puzzles, and don't overwhelm yourself!

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.

I have completed the last round yesterday (about 28 hours ago, to be precise :D), so I think that this shouldn't be the issue.

Dear sudoku and puzzle friends,

we hope that you are enjoying the World Sudoku+Puzzle Convention 2021 and having fun with our sudoku, puzzles, or interviews.

As we wanted to give the essence of the championship to those who do not attend it every year, we decided to keep the whole event free. More than a thousand registered players proved to us that this was a good decision, and our puzzling community can benefit from that in the future.

However, you may have noticed how much work has been done in a few months to prepare for such an event. This is why we want to kindly ask you for a small donation so that we can reward the effort and time of the puzzle authors and organizers who volunteered in their free time and spent hundreds of hours creating, re-drawing, testing the puzzles, and preparing the side events.

You can use PayPal or the Buy Me a Coffee platform for the donation. We will be happy for any amount of money and that will be used for the winner‘s prizes, author‘s rewards, and extension of website capacity.

Thank you very much and enjoy the rest of the event!

I hope this is the right place to record my thanks for organizing this event. It was fantastic. I haven't had a proper night's sleep for a week. The puzzle quality was outstanding and the website worked brilliantly. A special mention for the SHANGHAI DESIGNED Alternative Tapa. That was a beautiful discovery.

Quick post about event Wrap-up:

- As updated before, all rounds can now be done unofficially.
- If you do not want to do that competitively, all rounds can now be downloaded on the progress page, with solutions on the right. Those who want all time trials in one PDF can find that in the Time Trials topic.
- We have posted Solution Booklets for the bonus rounds. We will soon add notes below these to keep track of any puzzle issues of the specific rounds that may be relevant to people who go back and try the puzzles.
- We will try to post solution booklets for the main competition rounds by the end of the week. We may not post solutions for Time Trials, as we don't really have them ready. If one or more of the participants wishes to volunteer solution images or PDFs or penpa links (like IHNN did for the Time Trial PDF) we will happily compile that and upload it in some relevant section. We will at least try to put up author credits for specific puzzles regardless of this.
- The donations page is still active and we plan to keep it active for a week, just in case any of the earlier event participants haven't seen it yet as they haven't revisited the site.
- The only other matter we believe is left to resolve is the posting of the Trivia game content, which will happen soon.
