Nice and interesting IB......

A Small Query on reduction in points.........
Will the points will be reduced for all the puzzles submitted, even if I submit only one puzzle after 90 mins, or only the points of the puzzles submitted after 90 mins will be reduced.

Will the points will be reduced for all the puzzles submitted, even if I submit only one puzzle after 90 mins, or only the points of the puzzles submitted after 90 mins will be reduced.

Puzzles submitted within 90 mins will always get 100% value, irrespective of what you do in remaining 30 minutes.
Puzzles submitted within 90-100 mins will always get 75% value, irrespective of all other submissions you make.
...

Hope it is clear.

Note about Hitori Sum Answer key

This is only puzzle where answer is 'by column'. This is not easy to remember while entering the solution under time-limit.
So I decided to mark all the columns as shown below.



There is no change in rules or answer key definition.

Just to make sure that everyone understands the point reduction formula, here is an example.
Basically, 'how much you get for a particular puzzle' depends upon 'when you submitted it'. Nothing else.

In the answer for the Minesweeper puzzle, there is a mine next to the 4 (left end of second row) that has 3 mines around it. Is this allowed?

You are referring to R2C1. Yes, that is allowed.



The following situation is NOT allowed because of R2C3.



Cells with numbers will have exactly same number of mines around them.
Cells with mines may have any number of mines around them

Cells without numbers and mines can NOT have 3 mines around them. [This is the only rule change wrt a standard Minesweeper puzzle ]

Ah thank you. I thought it meant:
(Cells without numbers) and mines can NOT have 3 mines around them
instead of:
Cells without (numbers and mines) can NOT have 3 mines around them

Looking forward to trying these twists. The hitori sum is my favourite new idea, normally the numbers just get ignored.

During IB review itself, we found that the wording is little cryptic. So I included the example such that all the scenarios are reflected.

Hope it is clear to all.

Wow! Phenomenal test with a nice balance of difficulties and many fun puzzles on both ends of the spectrum. The twists were very interesting, and you even managed to make Hitori fun! You don't know how much that means to me. Thanks a lot Deb.

Thanks a lot for the feedback.
Yes, Hitori is a type that is not liked by all. I'm glad that the 2 Hitoris came out well and you liked them.

Thanks for the test. I had fun. My favourite was the ABC twist, really good puzzles both. And I managed to avoid making any entry errors, although I did take a very cautious approach entering my answer keys this time, probably cost me some time as I doublechecked what I had put in each time.
