The 12th World Minesweeper Championship took place 10 September 2011 at ETH Zürich. This was the second tournament to use the Scoreganizer client written by Tommy and the first tournament with online participants. Players downloaded Viennasweeper in advance and the program activated at 13:15 and uploaded videos directly to the Scoreganizer website. In total, 9 players competed in person and 7 players competed from home. However, since playing from home is an advantage the official results are the "meeting" results. Trophies were given to the best 3 players and medals were awarded to everyone. The top ranked player from Germany (Fritz) won the live competition and the top ranked player in the world (Kamil) won the online competition. Fritz set a new tournament record of 41.66 on Expert beating the 41.68 set by Roman at Budapest 2007. There was an amusing side event where teams of two played Beginner with one player blindfolder and one giving instructions: Fritz and Robert won with 54s, Arsen and Edu came second with 55s while Tommy and Stefan came last with 109s.
