World Puzzle Championship

Since 1992 the World Puzzle Federation is supervising a yearly World Puzzle Championship (WPC). The first one took place in New York. The last WPC was held in Senec, Slovakia in 2016. The 26th WPC will be held in Bangalore in 2017. Each national team for the WPC will consist of four members.

Each country organizes its own national championship to select the top four candidates to represent their respective countries. The Indian National Puzzle Championship used to take place every year in August - September. But from 2011, with new rules into effect, the National Championship will be held in May-June. More details regarding the National Puzzle Championship can be found at the following link.
