MEET THE CONSTRUCTORS
SCORING

Scoring

 

Each puzzle is scored on speed and accuracy, similar to the scoring system at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament (ACPT). The exact scoring metrics can be found on the "2020 Tournament Nuts and Bolts" page. 

 

The top three finishers in the Individuals Division (students and adults) on the five tournament puzzles will solve a championship themeless puzzle. 

 

Championship Round Info

 

The top three individual solvers will solve the championship puzzle (also solvers will get a chance to solve the puzzle while we set up the championship round). The screens of each of the three competitors will be broadcast in the Boswords Twitch stream.
