With a strong performance at WPC last year, Prasanna Seshadri receives a wild card for the Indian team. He will be joining the other top players from IPC at representing India in World Puzzle Championship.

Also, Prasanna will be organizing IPC this year.

Similar to the Indian Sudoku Championship, I'll be referring to the previous years' formats to gain some perspective. However, I do have a few small changes in mind for the Puzzle Championship. I'd like to say right at the start that we'd love to hear feedback after the Championship. Our dual goal is clear (here as well as in ISC) - Select the best possible Indian team for the World Championships, and have enough in the Championship for a beginner to enjoy and use as a base to improve for future years. So that means all solvers can provide some relevant feedback.

Anyway, more details will be released soon. As always, feel free to clear your doubts (or learn the logic for puzzle types that are newer to you) here using the practice sets the opening post has linked to. I can't say yet whether or not those types will appear in the Championships, but sharpening your logical skills in general always helps.

This competition will be used to determine the Indian Puzzle Champion for the year 2014.

It'll also be used to select the National Puzzle team which will be invited to represent India at the World Puzzle Championships, 2014, in UK. Here is the website to know more about this event - http://www.uk2014.org/ . The top 3 Indians in the Indian Puzzle Championship will be invited to join me on the team.

Also, please check the FAQ if you're new to the site, the contest norms are given there.

Prasanna sir, a lot of doubt are still there.
1. can i give this test from home?
2. what if my internet stop working in between?
3. or will you prefer any cyber cafe?
4. Creating a login account here = registration?
5. How will I know the registration process is complete? :(

Hi,
1. Yes of course. You can give it from anywhere with a stable internet connection.
2. Thats a risk for everyone unfortunately, and we just need to put that thought aside and hope for the best.
3. More than my preference, its better to see your preference. Since last year's contest was 2 and a half hours long, and this year's format is similar, I'd think it'll be difficult to do this at a cafe. But you need to print the PDF once you start the test, so the only advisable thing would be to have a printer nearby when you're starting.
4. Yes. You may need to login using your account id and password on the submission page. But you are already registered.
5. (answered by 4)

In general, I suggest you try out the Beginners' Contests starting tomorrow on this site (see top right). As far as starting the test, printing it out, submitting keys, and hoping the internet connection stays stable, this is a good way to learn how an online contest works. The puzzles will also be a good way to practice and improve your skills a little, of course

(


as i have faced this situation early i can suggest you one thing. If there is a risk that your internet will get disconnect or so. Then i can guarantee cyber cafe is safe place to deal with. Here is what i did, previous day i talked to the cyber cafe person for keeping me a place next day at that particular time i.e. 3 hrs and asked to keep his printer connection on etc. basically everything set before contest begins.

Hope this helps.

Yes. The test will be extended for International participants similar to last year.
Just to be clear again, Indian participants will only be considered for the official IPC rankings if they compete within the allotted time (which will be announced).

Adding to what Varun has said, the first post of the thread has links to previous year IPCs, which should help.

Small note on the instructions: The Tetromino Division sample puzzle uses 'S', while the list of tetrominos has 'Z'.

Interesting set of types, looking forward to this.

Nice set of puzzles. Looking forward to it.

I could not understand fully Torodial Slitherlinks. e.g. Where top left corner end is wrapping around? and how we are able to complete the loop?

It wraps around both ways. So the left most column of dots and the right most column of dots are really the same column. The same goes for the top most row of dots and the bottom most row of dots. From this we can also get that all corner dots are really the same dot.

In Spirally as ABC should the order be A-B-C-D from the inside or from the outside?

According to the example in the IB it's from outside, which is also consistent with most spiral puzzles (put letters from outside).

Its from the outside (The open cell) to the inside, as the example shows.

Some practice for Cross the Streams - http://www.gmpuzzles.com/blog/category/cross-the-streams/

For Tetromino Division, the Beginners' Contest authored by Serkan should be helpful - http://logicmastersindia.com/lmitests/?test=B2014032

Pentomino Division is basically the Pentominous from GMP - http://www.gmpuzzles.com/blog/?s=pentominous

Maximal Lengths was on the recent Puzzle GP - http://gp.worldpuzzle.org/content/wpf-puzzle-gp4 (Both Instruction Booklet example and the competition puzzle should be useful).

For Observer Battleships, you can scroll down to puzzle number 12 here - http://puzzleparasite.blogspot.in/2012/11/13th-24-hour-puzzle-champ...

For some of the base types, me and Swaroop had collaborated for a practice set last year with some basic solving tips, which can be seen here - http://prasannaseshadri.wordpress.com/2013/07/03/ipc-preview-practi...

TomTom and Coded TomTom were both in IPC 2012, which is linked to in the opening post.
