The landing page reflects this, and a new schedule PDF has been added in the Schedule Overview section as well. The new schedule can quickly be accessed here - https://www.worldpuzzle.org/files/106/updated%20schedule.pdf

Also, a new panelist has been added to this panel - Freddie Hand of the UK! More in the post above.

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!
