Introduction

We, the organizers of WSPC 2017, want to know about puzzles that have a special meaning to specific countries.

Over the years many different countries have contributed to the world of puzzles. In this time, it is possible that a country has a special connection to one specific puzzle type. The possible connections may include but are not limited to:
a. Innovation and Origin of the puzzle type.
b. Biggest market for the puzzle type.
c. Specific experiences or memories involving a puzzle type that stand out as unique experiences.

Everyone is encouraged to participate in the discussion and provide input here. Anyone from a country can make a submission by starting their post with 'Official Submission for [Country]' along with the reasoning behind it. Feel free to discuss types and submissions for countries other than your own as well.

Official submission for India: Hitori

Hitori is a type which appears on the Times of India's supplement newspapers very regularly. Fence and Kakuro also appear but they started after Hitori had been there for a while. A decent number of Indians know about the puzzle and this factors into it being a regular in the Indian Puzzle Championships.
