Re: LMI Screen Test #2 — 1-4 November'2011

Thanks very much to the LMI team for putting this together, it's really useful for those of us who haven't seen a screentest before to get an inkling of how it works. How does the test at the WPC itself compare to this, in terms of, say, organistation and difficulty? As well as being useful practise...

Re: hungarian championships

Capsules I think is also known as Tatami, a puzzle I've seen in an Italian book. English rules are pretty much what everyone has already guessed:

Re: WPC/WSC preparation

Thanks for the answers. I didn't expect anyone to accept sterling, I was more interested in whether they accepted Euros or if we'd need Hungarian currency (Forints?). It seems like the conclusion is that probably only Euros are needed.

Re: 2011 Double Decathlon - LMI October Puzzle Test - 15/16

Agree with most of the other comments, there were some great puzzles. I did intend to solve all the hards first, but I couldn't get a few of them out, so I had to solve the corresponding easies to lead me toward the bonus.

Re: WPC/WSC preparation

This thread is a good idea. A few random organisational questions: How long is there generally between rounds? The schedule indicates 4 sessions of 3 hours each of Individual Rounds, is this typically several rounds with short breaks in between? How long after each round do we find out our scores? O...

Re: US Puzzle Championship (27 Aug 2011 1pm ET)

Congratulations to David on being the highest UK participant. I found it was a really enjoyable set of puzzles, the solutions to many of them just flowed so nicely, in particular Crossed Countries and both Corrals. It's hard for me to be too disappointed with my own performance (considering my lack ...

A few years ago I bought a book of puzzles from the WSC...
