The Fine Print
New Puzzle: Each individual or team must show the judges their puzzle box NEW, unopened, in its shrink wrap, on the day of the competition.
Sorting Trays: These are allowed. So is looking at the picture on the box. Other tools (spatulas, cutting devices, magnifying glasses, cell phone cameras) are NOT.
Friendly Competition: Let’s build this community & encourage each other’s progress!
