I thoroughly enjoyed the test - completed at the "official start time" - so the timer was fine for me. All the ones I did generally worked fine for me - a few quick abandons. Gapped Kakuro annoyed me at the time as I got a bit done, then couldn't see the next move. Went back to it last night - saw the next move virtually immediately and completed. Thanks to all concerned.

Just finished most of the set. I like Pentahouses, Space Probes, Tren, Musketeer Sudoku and Frozen Pentominos as my favorite 5. Gapped Kakuro, Tapa, were good too. Its unfortunate I couldn't evaluate myself well during the test.

There is always room for improvement but I am decently happy with my tally of 201. Thanks to the organizers for the contest and congratulations to Thomas for his return to the top.

39 assuming no errors. Creating puzzles is my thing - solving not so much.

248 if I did not miss anything. I screwed several puzzles and clearly could have done better, so I take it as a good sign for the future.

Thanks to the authors and organizers. Some puzzles were very nice. As Thomas said, Complementary Domains is clearly a good (better) alternative to Four Winds. I would be pleased to see some more in the future. Multiplicative corral was a fun and quite easy solve, Sudoku was a superb example of its type, Tren was very good too although I did not solve it during the test, being far from confident after having repeatedly screwed one the day before. Pentahouses was great, the idea was very well exploited and it flowed nicely. Nice Space Probes too, that I am happy to have been able to solve logically. Frozen pentominoes I did only after the test, but I probably should have given it a try. Snail's Nest, Gapped Kakuro and Fences Variation were brilliant and Musketeer sudoku was of a very neat conception.

Now eagerly waiting for the USSC, that I hope to enjoy as much.
