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 'Submission for [Country]' along with the reasoning behind it. Feel free to discuss types and submissions for countries other than your own as well.

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.

Motivation for conducting the Country Based Puzzle discussion


The main reason for conducting the discussion is to gather information and use the WPC discussion portal as a place to share the knowledge of how specific puzzle types have impacted countries over the years. So more than worrying about how this plays in to WPC, we encourage everyone to participate in an open and light-hearted discussion aimed towards gathering this interesting information so that all puzzle enthusiasts can get some more knowledge and background on puzzle types and countries.
