PUZZLE TOURNAMENT
There are five rounds to the Puzzle tournament, of 30, 60, 45, 30 and 60 minutes. These will become available on the 28th and 29th of April, in the schedule described in the instruction book and on the tournament page. Once the start time passes you will have 1 week to complete the rounds. Each round can be started at a time of your choosing during that week, but if you take the rounds during the on-site tournament your results will also be visible to on-site competitors.

SUDOKU TOURNAMENT
There are three rounds to the Sudoku tournament, of 30, 90 and 45 minutes. These will also become available on the 28th and 29th of April, and again you will have 1 week to complete the rounds. Each round can be started at a time of your choosing during that week, but if you take the rounds during the on-site tournament your results will also be visible to on-site competitors.

INSTRUCTIONS
Instruction booklets have been published for on-site competitors elsewhere on this forum. Instructions for online competitors can be found at http://www.ukpuzzles.org/contests.php - these include details of the online entry keys and scoring.

TEAM SELECTION
Please note for eligible UK competitors that you CANNOT qualify for the UK WSC or UK WPC teams via this online competition - only on-site competitors in Manchester are eligible. There will be places for each team available in other online tournaments later this year.
