Hi, welcome to LMI! We planned the Sudoku Mahabharat and Puzzle Ramayan events with 8 online rounds to encourage regular participation among Indians. Rewarding regularity is important to us. Also, it is unfair to participants who were told they needed to do 8 rounds to qualify and also unfair to those beyond the top 50 who didn't qualify if we grant entry to newcomers at this stage.

However, I suggest that you use this time to train and improve yourself because if you are new to LMI, then odds are you are new to variations and the difficulty that exists at the National level. With some hard work you can improve and maybe get a really good rank in future competitions. You can download all the online rounds of Sudoku Mahabharat as well as other LMI contests here - http://logicmastersindia.com/forum/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=60&st... . Practice them and see how you fair at solving them. Feel free to ask doubts and queries on the forum if you are stuck at a particular variant or something. There will be more National level events coming up both this year and next year, probably including the Times Championship the other member asked about above, so you will surely get a chance to participate at some point, and its better to start preparing for that even if you were too late this time.

Can someone explain Mirror Sudoku mentioned in Round 2.

It was there in the 6th round of SM: Twisted Classics.

Box-1 and Box-9 are mirrored about the centre.
Box-3 and Box-7 are mirrored about the centre.


Cells marked with same alphabets contain the same digit.

Thanks Rohan. Bad that I have missed it in the prelims also. Is it always Box 1 and Box 9 mirrored and Box 3 and Box 7 mirrored. The Rules states
"The four corner boxes (top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right) all contain the same digit in symmetrical positions with respect to the center of the grid. "

How does all contain same digit in symmetrical positions with respect to centre of grid. Am I missing something in the Rules here.

Here is another way of looking at it. If you turn the solution by 180 degrees, digits still remain same in box 1, 3, 7, 9

Thanks Deb. I am now able to follow how the digits in four boxes are symmetric. I had interpreted in some other way.

It was fun, fun al the way.
Really I enjoyed the two days at Indian Sudoku and Puzzle Championships.
Thanks to Prasanna and Deb for organizing and coming up with great set of Puzzles; Special mention to the Surprise package Six or Half Dozen. I enjoyed this set more, Interestingly I scored well here.
Thanks to Varun, Rakesh Rai, Kishore, Ezhil, Ravichndran, Kumareshan, Ashish and other Chennai team members, sorry I could not remember the names for the dedicated and hard work put in.
Thanks to Mr. Vivek Jain and Sai karthic for sharing the room and spend some quality time with me.
The dinner on Saturday night was a special one.
Finally thanks to Amit for the little fun with card game at Chennai mall.
Congratulation to all winners.
I am sure those missed the lost a lot of fun and enjoyment.
Thanks to all other participants and volunteers too.
Eagerly Looking forward to the finals of the 2016/17 edition.
Bye.

I had a great time at the two day event. Right from soup to nuts everything was amazing. Thanks to Prasanna, Deb, Varun, Rakesh sir, Ezhil, Ravi sir, Kumatesan sir, Ashish Kr and others for such a great event.
It was my first time at an offline event in India. I really enjoyed meeting so many great people together.
For the 1st time I participated in any Puzzle competition. The puzzles were really very interesting. Though I didn't have practise in puzzles and could not perform very well there the amazing set of puzzles have increased my interest in them.

My parents were very tensed about my going to a new city alone. But the Chennaiyans helped me a lot with that and I hardly faced any problem. Thanks a lot for that.
I also enjoyed the board game brought by Amit and the dinner thereafter.
Last but not the least, the special prize for U-21 was really amazing. Thanks a lot to Rohan for that.

The finals of SM and PR was a very enriching experience for me both as a participant and as one of the main organizers from the Chennai side.I am really glad that we could host the event without any hiccups and for the participants having fun time during the 2 days.Felicitations to Deb and Prasanna for the beautiful sudokus/puzzles during the contest and for the recreation round on both days which made sure that the steam of the event was not lost one bit even by the end of the day.Kudos to the 'super' juniors Pranav who knocked out Rohan in the Classic sudoku master and to Kartik for completing the Domino round first along with Harmeet.
Though I am slightly disappointed that I didn't put up a better performance in Round 4 of SM which would have given me a second,I am happy to have made the India A-Team along with Prasanna,Rohan and Rakesh .On the puzzle front ,I am satisfied with my show not to mention that it could have been way better too had it not been for the 100 or so points that I lost in silly errors.Special thanks to Deb for the bonus Goliath 18 grid interlinked Classic sudoku and to Prasanna for the coded 8 grid puzzle respectively both of which I am yet to solve :) .Hope to see you all soon !!

I had the most wonderful weekend of the year so far. Really loved the two days of sudoku and puzzle solving. Unlike last year when I was leading after the first two rounds and messed up rounds 3 & 4, this year was just the opposite. I faltered badly in rounds 1 & 2 and did extremely well in round 3 which I never expected. The 4th round was a masterstroke by Deb and Prasanna . I had expected myself to be in top 3 in Sudoku Mahabharata and in top 10 of ISC which I accomplished.
Play-offs was also a nice experience. Having a lead of 30 seconds & 1 minute respectively over harmeet and gaurav helped me keep my cool . Luckily, I didn't make any mistakes in the play-offs and was declared the winner. Well played Gaurav & Harmeet.
Classic Sudoku master was very nice. Unfortunately, I had to face Rohan in the second round itself and I just broke the puzzle. Pranav did amazingly well by knocking Rohan out. Congrats to Kishore for winning the title and to Rakesh for finishing runner up.
Thanks Deb and Prasanna for the lovely sudokus and the people of Chennai for organising the event so well. Last but not the least , thanks to most of the solvers for simultaneously messing up their 3rd round :)
