More than 100 regional winners confirmed participation in the 10 PSSC

About one hundred eighty regional Sudoku winners made a swift and sure declaration to participate in the 10th Philippine Sudoku super Challenge (PSSC) which will be held at The Skydome, SM North EDSA in Quezon City on Saturday, January 30, 2016. Registration starts from 8:00am to 10:00am. Contest starts at 10:00am to 5:00pm.

Making it against time to beat the confirmation deadline, one hundred thirty-three Sudoku puzzlers, now considered as official national finalists, will come face to face with their equals as they vie for the top five titles of the following categories: Sudoku Whiz Kid (Elementary Level), Sudoku Wizard (High School Level) and Sudoku Grand Master (Collegiate and Professional Level).

Other than this year’s declared PSSC regional champs, last year’s 9th PSSC national winners of every category, if they confirmed their participation, are considered official national finalists as well. Other regional winners who failed to beat the confirmation deadline are deemed uninterested participants, therefore, they are regarded as not official national finalists. The Organizer strongly prohibits walk-in participants. 

The 10th PSSC national finalists will solve around 20 to 25 puzzles in 6th rounds in approximately 2 hours in 30 minutes.  Some of the puzzles are 6 x 6 Non-consecutive Sudoku, 7 x 7 Irregular Sudoku, Standard Sudoku, Frame Sudoku, Windoku, Outside Sudoku, 3D Cube Sudoku, Killer Sudoku, Consecutive Diagonal Sudoku, Jumbo 3D Sudoku, Zero Killer Sudoku, Killer Samurai Diagonal Sudoku, Samurai Combination Sudoku.

Furthermore, national finalists from the Visayas, Mindanao and those from Luzon with more than 5- hour travel time to Manila can avail of the FREE accommodation to be announce soonCoaches and accompanying persons are not included in this accommodation sponsorship.

The organizer reiterates that the top three winners of every category, winning the cash prizes, will have to agree through a waiver allowing the organizer to keep the money for the participants for their plane tickets and other travel expenses abroad as they represent the Philippines in Sudoku and puzzle competitions.
