Pacru World Championships are held at the Mind Sports Olympics.
The Mind Sports Olympics promotes various different "mind sports": not just abstract strategy games. Mainly active in the UK there are also tournaments elsewhere. For the next 3 years (at least) the annual Olympiad will be in Manchester.
Enter the next Championship in Manchester, England on August 30th 2004!
There will be morning and afternoon sessions. The championship works on the "Swiss System" so that players generally will play the same number of games (no "knock out"). Depending on the number of entrants there will be probably be about 20-25 minutes per player per game: so if you want to enter you need to practice playing quickly.
