Important Notice about contest

Regarding the future of Micromouse Contest and All Japan Contest

    In order to be Micromouse Contest more attractive, we will adjust and change the names of each Contest and set up participation qualification to the All Japan Contest.

    1. Changing the name of Contests

      From the year 2018, we will change the name of Contests and operate the next 3 game events in All Japan Contest.
      Also we will abolish prior classification (expert class, freshman class).

        Micromouse Contest *ex: Micromouse (Half size) Contest
        Classicmouse Contest *ex: Micromouse Classic Contest
        Robotrace Contest

    2. Operation of All Japan Contest

      We will operate each Contest in All Japan Contest as follows.

      Introduction of participation qualification system

      Completion record holders of each regional Contest in Japan of the year will be able to participate in All Japan Contest. However, when participation to regional Contest is difficult (such as participants from foreign countries), we examine participation qualification separately.
      In the 39h All Japan Micromouse Contest (Micromouse 2018), participants from foreign countries can participate without participation qualification.

      Abolition of preliminaries

      Due to introduction of participation qualification, we will abolish preliminaries that we have done until previous year, and operate only finals.

      Because of introduction of participation qualification and abolition of preliminaries, we will shorten 1 day in the schedule of All Japan Contest and operate 2 days for the time being.

      We would like participants to understand and wrestle with constant passion to the new frame Micromouse.
