Details

The tournament took place 23 June 2012 in Munich, at Nymphenburger Schulen starting at 2pm. Players had 3 hours to win at least 5 intermediate and 5 expert games. Players could compete in Munich or at home, with game videos uploaded to the Scoreganizer website. Players who attended received certificates and medals, "2012 Minesweeper World Championship" shirts were available in different colours, the top 9 players received posters and the top 3 sweepers won trophies.

The tournament used the minesweeper version Viennasweeper. Players could compete at the tournament or online, with scores uploaded live to the Scoreganizer website.

More Info

On Thursday, Fritz met Moritz and Rob for drinks at a beergarden where they discussed math and speedcubing. The next day Fritz collected Rob and Edu from the hostel and toured the city, meeting up later with Tommy and Elias for pizza near central station. The group put their powerful brains together and created a new sport, which involved throwing plastic bottles into trash cans. David had a bad flight and arrived at 2am, but he was keen to visit the Cubikon puzzle shop Saturday morning with most of the others before the tournament. This led to more sightseeing and pizza at Villa Dante, where they met Jakob, Timo, Isi and Thomas.

The players headed to Nymphenburger Schulen where Daniel and Stephan were waiting, and soon Benny and the remaining sweepers arrived. Players were given 30 minutes to warm-up. During the tournament Fritz blasted a 42 on the last click and had to leave the room to calm down, as this would have been a tournament world record. The results on the Scoreganizer website were shown live on the wall using a beamer.

At the awards ceremony Tommy was awarded a speedcube as a prize. (Most top sweepers are also top cubers). There was also a side event where players were given a print-out of a 170 3bv Expert game and told to solve it in the fewest clicks possible, and this was won by Robert.

As is tradition, after the competition everyone went bowling. Stephan easily hit 176 while Tommy stole the show with a Sub40, apparently thinking you are supposed to hit the empty spaces and avoid the pins.

This was the largest tournament in history, with 14 players taking part in Munich (1 only finished Beginner games) and another 41 players around the world playing online.

Bonus fact: There was a 10th poster - Fritz had all the players sign it and they mailed it, along with an extra medal, to the webmaster of this site.

Trophies for the Winners



Fritz supervises the players. Looks like one or two Rubiks cubes and a Pacman shirt made it past security.
