Some useful facts about Hungary:

  • The time-zone is GMT +1 hour (EST +6 hours).
  • Hungary is member of the European Union, so if you’re allowed to travel to the EU without visa (or even without passport), you won’t have any trouble. If you need visa, we can provide you an invitation letter in order to help your visa application. Please check your country’s status on the website of the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs (, where you download the Visa Application Forms – if it’s need.
  • Hungary is not the member of the euro-zone, our currency is the Hungarian Forint (HUF). Now the daily rate (which is quite hectic due to the economy crisis) is 1 EUR = 295 HUF and 1 USD = 210 HUF. The abbreviation of the forint, what you'll seen on price tags is Ft.
  • In Hungary the electricity’s voltage is 220 V, the frequency is 50 Hz. If you have a different one in your country and you’d like to use your equipment in Hungary, please bring a switcher with you.
  • The weather in November is quite vary: sometimes above 20 Celsius, sometimes under 10 Celsius in daytime, so it’s highly recommend to come with some warm clothes.
  • Even in the popular touristy areas only the major shops accept Euro or USD in cash, but you can pay in most of the shops and in the hotels with major credit cards, bank cards.

The puzzles

I’m happy to announce that the structure of the event and the puzzle-sets are almost ready, but we don’t want to publish all the details about each puzzle part right now, just one week before the event (as usual) – you can see the tentative schedule on the website of the events ( Please note, that there could be some minor change (especially in the length of the puzzle parts), because we’re still compiling and testing the puzzle sets.

Most of the puzzles are provided by Zoltán Horváth, Zoltán Németh, Pál Madarassy, László Mérő, László Osvalt, Gyula Slenker, Boglar Major, Károly Kresz and Zoltán Gyimesi.


In order to help your team practising for the upcoming event, I’m offer to visit the LMI’s website, because in July there was a contest with Hungarian puzzles ( The Hungarian National Championship was hold on 17th September, and both of the puzzle sets (WSC and WPC qualifying test) is available.
The WSC Instrcution Booklet is available directly from here. (PDF-file, 1,2 MB).
The WPC Instrcution Booklet is available directly from here. (PDF-file, 1,5 MB).

Puzzles from the Hungarian Championship

  • Part 1-2-3-4 was used to select the WSC-team, Part 4-5-6 was for the WPC-selection.
  • The results of the Hungarian Selection: WSC, WPC.

24-Hour Puzzle Championship

We were ask by some puzzlers to organise our yearly event together with the WSC-WPC. We discussed it, and we’re willing to do it, if there will be a large amount of puzzlers who cannot try it in other times. As because we have enough work with the WSC-WPC puzzles, we’d like to use “foreign” puzzles – so we’ll provide only the accommodation for the event.
Now, the decision is final, if the WSC+WPC is not enough for you, you can test your skills on the 11th 24 HPC, too.
The registration fee is 180 Euros in double room and 220 Euros in single room.
Those who're compiling puzzle set, 40 Euros discount will be provided.

The amount of the participants:

Because this year’s event will be the first double event, we would like to continue most of the previous year’s rules, in every cases we chose the higher number, so

- each team will be formed by 4 puzzlers (both on WSC, both on WPC), because the WPC’s teams were always 4-membered

- on the WPF 4, on the WSC 6 individuals per country will be listed on the official ranking (like in the past), the other member of the delegation can take part on the individual parts, but they will be regarded as ‘unofficials’  (cannot get bonus points and awards)

- one team per country will be listed on the official ranking (as usual), the other team will be regarded as ‘unofficial’ (cannot get bonus points and awards)

The name of the official individuals and the list of the A-team should be finalised before the start of the event.
