Certificates & Prizes

As we had done last year, we'll be sending participation certificates to all the official participants on their registered email IDs, after the competition takes place. Also, as we had done last year, we are making the hard copies of the certificates, along with the organizer's sign, available at the price of Rs. 99. The account details will be sent in the mail with the participation certificate. Unlike last year, we have set a deadline for our convenience. All requests for hard copies, along with details of preferred name, and mailing address, need to be mailed in reply to the Participation certificate email by 31st August. We will then courier all of them together in the 1st week of September.

In addition to this, the top 10 official participants will receive a prize each. Details about the prize will be announced here at a later date, and the prizes will be sent along with certificates in the 1st week of September.

In the Unscramble puzzle, is it about pairs having same characters or similar pattern in placement of characters or could be anything ?

As far I interpret, as it has been mentioned pair the figures, so it could be anything.

In B3-As easy as ABC(numbers), shouldn't the rules read "Enter the letters from the given range into the grid so that each row and column AND Irregular region contains each letter exactly once" because I see letters of the given range in each irregular region too.....

I don't think it can be 'anything'. How can you use 'placement' of characters after 'unscrambling' it? The placement gets lost, right?
This example is just about the same set of alphabets.

Yes, you're right. And not just Irregular Regions, its also the set of shaded cells.

Fixed Rule:
Enter the letters from the given range into the grid so that each row, column, thick-outlined region and the set of shaded cells contains each letter exactly once.

Thanks for clarifying.
I should have mentioned it clear, actually what I meant was it's not necessary that actual puzzle would be set of alphabets it could be anything else like numbers or images or anything.

B3 - Rule fixed in updated IB.

Swaroop's interpretation about A3 Unscramble is correct that 1) placement of symbols does not matter 2) the actual puzzle may not have letters.

If possible can we have page numbers in the actual puzzle booklet either in bottom right or top right corner, it would be really helpful. Thanks.

Just a typo correction needed: In J3- Loop The Loops (Apply rules of J1,J2 slitherlink instead of K1,K2 Slitherlink).

Lots of new variants - to be expected from Prasanna :)
Didn't quite follow the Square count & unscramble.
In unscramble, r we just looking at the same letters occurring in both the options?

And in square count what are the number of squares belong to?

In Statue Park it says:

Answer key: Enter the first three pentominos seen along the marked rows & columns. (– if not enough pentominos).

Since the bank is not necessarily the set of pentominoes, I suppose it should read "three shapes" (and "not enough shapes") instead?

Out of the Classics, only Not Alone and Balance Loop haven't appeared in multiple LMI contests before (not counting Three-Point Snake since the additional rule from normal snake is minimal and actually can make things easier). Some of the variants are probably newish. Anyway, here are some practice links.

Outside LITS - http://www.gmpuzzles.com/blog/?s=Outside+LITS
Balance Loop - http://www.gmpuzzles.com/blog/?s=Balance+Loop
Not Alone - http://puzzleparasite.blogspot.in/search/label/Not%20Alone - Just one unless you have the enthusiasm to deduce which grid is the Not Alone from the Matchmaker, but that one has a really cool deduction as a break-in.
Statue Park, Gapped Kakuro & Loop The Loops have both appeared in past LMI Marathons, so solving those should get you more than enough practice on the two types. Other than that, some Loop The Loops will be on my blog, https://prasannaseshadri.wordpress.com/ and some Gapped Kakuros should be on GM Puzzles and Serkan's blog, https://yureklis.wordpress.com/ . Statue Park will be on GM Puzzles too. Full Tapa will be found in a past Tapa Variations Contest, and Fillomino [Stars] in Fillomino Fillia and on Palmer's blog, https://mellowmelon.wordpress.com/ .
