At this time of the year I usually want to post a review of the German Puzzle Championship. There is a secondary issue I would like to discuss, though, so I will keep the first part brief. Yes, this year’s championship did take place (with the puzzles from 2020, which could not be used at the time due to the Covid pandemic). My results were acceptable, I guess – I ended up in a solid fifth place, but the distance to the top was once again enormous.
