Does Kropki (and Kropki-Skyscrapers) have "converse" rules, so "all possible white and black dots are given"? Just making sure.

Thanks for the well-constructed Penta, Harmeet! I enjoyed it. Only, a little disappointed with myself on the F and W mixup.

I want to mention, that the answer keys really were very good. Using 3 principal system for answer keys throughout the whole round is very pleasing. But I guess the puzzle types vere really helpful in here. Number puzzles rule! But still I enjoyed the tetro-pento placement the most. It's just because they were very entertaining to solve and also because the number puzzles were not sudokus ;)

I was having a smooth run until i got to the Tomtom puzzles. Even the "easy" one completely stumped me. It seems any digit can go just about anywhere...not for me, certainly not with a timer. Never had a chance to look at polyomino puzzles but I can try them later. Thanks for fun puzzles.

I didn't like the kropki 'empty gimmick' being used, twice, the points are more relevant for those that have seen it before. Thanks H & P!

Very much enjoyed TomToms, although the last two were quite difficult and ate up a lot of time. Also, the Pentominoes was quite fun and I was surprised at how approachable the logic was for me (I usually have difficulty with it).

Congratulations to the toppers, and thanks to all the participants! I hope you enjoyed this episode. The difficulty level was slightly on the higher side but I hope all the puzzles were approachable. This was my first attempt as an author of a puzzles event and it would not have been possible without Prasanna, who not only co-authored but also acted as mentor and kept up the motivation level. Thanks to Rakesh as well who is, apart from various other roles, a flawless event coordinator.

Excellent set to finish.
My performance was bad as I am not good at these types so felt little hard, but they were good quality.
My favourite was Pentominoes.
Nice Job Harmeet as a first time author.
Thanks to LMI.
