Proverb: 1999 Results

See also 1998 Results

For more information, see the official 1999 Tournament page.

Unlike 1998, in which we "participated" after the event, in 1999 Will Shortz asked us to attempt the puzzles in advance of the actual contest. He was then able to present our results to the atendees as they worked through the puzzles. Michael Littman prepared a commentary on our 1999 results, with an introduction by Will Shortz.

There were 261 human participants in 1999 who attempted the 7 puzzles.

Proverb averaged 75% words correct per puzzle, taking about 10-15 minutes per puzzle.
