Polish puzzle championship
Polish puzzle championship
Next weekend the online phase of the Polish Puzzle championship will be played
The problem is that the site is only available in Polish so a bit awkward to explore.
The following is the link to the contest page .http://sfinks.org.pl/contest,17,page_90.html. The puzzle are not too dramatic to understand as most of them are classical but the answer key is not of immediate understanding
I wonder if any Polish friend (or anyone who understand Polish) can submit a quick translation.

Re: Polish puzzle championship
I have tested some (most?) of the puzzles for this a little while ago, so I can probably help with questions regarding rules and such, although I'm not sure I can answer any questions about the answer keys. I can point Aga in the direction of this thread, although I'm not sure she'll have time to do any translations...

Re: Polish puzzle championship
I am under the impression that the championship has taken place while the site was down (at least for me). The contest was open only at 12.00 Polish time Yesterday
the championship file can still be downloaded ant the site announces the Sudoku qualification for next weekend.

Re: Polish puzzle championship
A nice set of 14 puzzles, nothing too difficult, mostly classic types. Thanks to the authors.
