The MTG will officially send participants to the 14th World Puzzle Championship, which will be held in the town of Eger, Hungary on October 8-13, 2005. This is the first time ever the Philippines will participate in such competition since the Philippines represented by MTG officially became a member of the World Puzzle Federation last SY 2004 through the dynamic leadership of Dr. Simon L. Chua.
The competition is expected to be the biggest event in the WPC’s history because there were already more than 30 countries who confirmed their participation to the said competition. All puzzles presented at a World Puzzle Championship (WPC) are cultural and language neutral. For instance, puzzles based on logic, visual puzzles, puzzles with numbers. If words are used, it will be puzzles like fill-ins or word searches, where one does not need to know the meaning of the words. You may download some sample puzzles at http://www.worldpuzzle.org/championships/2001/brno_puzzles.html
As of the present, below are qualified to join and agreed to participate in the said competition:
