A slight change of schedule

The 14th WPC.

38 teams and 152 competitors, the largest WPC in history. The board of the World Puzzle Federation decided: no more B-teams in the future. Anyway, it was a nice experiment, but it seems almost impossible to host and drill such a large group of weirdo's.

Georgy. After the championships he managed to organize the 6th 24 hours puzzle marathon. I think he will be asleep for weeks, now the tournament is over. He and Zoltan (and all the others, ofcourse) did a great job. Next year the WPC is in Bulgaria, and in 2007 Brazil will be our host.

Will and his jetlag. This photo was taken during the instruction meeting for the Screentest. The instruction took about half an hour, the screentest itself was over within ten minutes. And the solution of the Master Mind was, ofcourse, Eger spelled backwards.

 

There were three teamparts: Tantrix, Jigsaw and The Weakest Link. The Dutch reached the 2nd place twice, but only the Germans finished The Weakest Link, which made them the winning team.

Bram (24), Annick (44), Niels (3) and Tim (34). In our pool Niels predicted Voight 1, Huang 2, Roest 3 - so he won. (I thougt Zack would become the new champion.)

The German team, claiming for the first place with the Jigsaw puzzle.

Team USA solving the Jigsaw puzzle.

But beware: some pieces may not be needed.

In fact, there were three puzzles, in two of them only one piece was missing.
