These were some beautiful and a bit hard type of puzzles. All the puzzles were great and I enjoyed solving them.

Sudoku N was my favorite hands down. Especially the 9x9 grid which did not have a single dot given. :)

On a personal note, I felt the Diagonal Product 9x9 could have been given a few more clues. It would require a lot of elimination and pencilmarking which again in my opinion was too much in this puzle. In a time bound competition, players tend to jump to T&E rather than enjoy the beauty of a logical solve. But again it could be that I missed seeing the opening that was intended. :)

Overall, Great Job Gaurav :)

The contest page and this thread says 30th April. The top banner says 1st May. When does the test actually end?

Normally I find the tests are always extended by a day. Instead of extending it, make all testes closing time to Tuesday midnight IST. For me the week ends are always busy and I used to participate on Mondays. If I know that the test closing time is Tuesday I can participate without any time pressure.

1) IN Sudoku N 9*9 NO DOTS WERE MARKED SO EXACTLY WHAT WAS EXPECTED?

2) IN KILLER SUDOKU (2) 9*9 CAGES IN THE 7 & 9 SQUARES WERE NOT MARKED PROPERLY,SO IT WAS CONFUSING

3) LITTLE KILLER (2) 9*9 WAS DIFFICULT SO M0RE THAN 15 POINTS SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALLOTTED ATLEAST 18 TO 20

I usually solve online, some schemes were very confusing, the numbers of the killer overlapping the candidates.

Thanks for the feedback. This could have been improved.

1) Please read the rules again. All possible dots are supposed to be marked. Since zero dots are there, nowhere can a mathematical operation on 2 adjacent cells result in N. So using this, find N, apply the converse rule everywhere and solve.
2) Cages were different from normal cages and they were marked clearly enough for one to solve.
3) All points are allocated based on tester experience, and Little Killer has been allocated 15 points. Your experience can differ.

And, please try to use normal case instead of ALL CAPS.

...but in terms of the feedback the form asks for, this target distribution seems to be something of a nonsense. Perhaps this little and large format is too limiting?

Thanks for bringing this up (again). We will review the feedback form but changes, if any, may not happen in this year's contests.

Thanks to all the Participants and Congratulations to winners. I would like to thanks Rakesh who is working behind the scenes and Prasanna for testing the Sudokus along with him.
Thanks everyone for providing the feedback which will help me in improving.

Almost everyone talked about hard puzzles in this round, but nature of Math round is like this over the years.
Sudoku-N is liked by participants the most and I am very happy to see that as this variant is tweaked sligthly by me
[determining N as part of solve and limiting N within the range] after Rakesh introduced it to me.

Little killer was termed hardest but it has clean and tricky solving path and perfect fit for contest like these.

Overall I am very happy and satisfied with Puzzles, Participation and Feedback by all. Many more to come.
Happy Sudokuing !!

You have not been given a rank because you have been disqualified by the organizers which usually happens when they have sufficient reason to believe that you attained your score by 'unfair' means.If you have further queries, you can contact logicmasteradmin@gmail.com

Right now the page for this contest seems to be inaccessible : it is blank, with "Instructions expected soon" written in the top green banner (right next to "Results", which are accessible).
Is it possible to put it back online ?
Thanks !
