 What was your opinion of the distribution of easy/hard puzzles? Too many hard puzzles
 What did you think about the puzzle quality of the test? Fairly Nice


..................... I spent so long on the large Sum Star that I thought the contest was over, I just gave up on competing and was being stubborn.
These puzzles are too hard and complicated for a normal LMI contest structure - even 2 hours was much too short.
Perhaps you could try a 1 week time limit, like the April contest, let people take their time?

Beautifully designed puzzles.

I was wondering about a potential alternate solution to Sum Star 1. After the test I came up with an answer string of 873x17x7x. The top left dodecagon reading clockwise from the 8(at 9 o'clock) - 6x42x3x1x598 with 7 in the middle. The top right dodecagon reading clockwise from the 7 (at 3 o'clock) - 82x79x4x35x7 with 1 in the middle. The lower dodecagon reading clockwise starting with a 8 at 12 o'clock then x1x96543x2x8 with the 7 in the middle.

Possibly stupid question: When will the password for this test be available (again)? Is there any reason why the passwords are not published immeiately after the competition is over?

Apologies that I didn't address these earlier.

Eugene,

The alternate solution fails because the top right dodecagon contains two 7's and no 6.

Nizz,

the password is topo-LOGICal

I will look into getting an unlocked pdf and solutions booklet posted.
