About Classic Tapa Contest - 2016
Classic Tapa Contest
) is a contest for solving Classic Tapa Puzzles, along with its older sibling "Tapa Variations Contest".
Everyday a new Tapa will be available to solve. Unlike TVC, all puzzles in CTCs are to be solved online.
CTC will follow Indian Standard Time
(which is 5.5 hours ahead of GMT
). Check the submission page for exact timing in your time zone
We will be publishing week wise grid sizes in advance
At the end of 7 weeks
(on the same day that
), a winner will be declared. The winner of CTC will have a title called Classic Tapa Master.
CTC Scoring system
The scoring system and formula are exactly same as previous years.
Submissions within 60 minutes will be considered for scoring
2 minutes penalty for each wrong submission
15% time penalty for each late day
(maximum 2 late days are allowed – so a puzzle can be solved upto 72 hours after it is uploaded
Each puzzle has its own points, which is computed from solving times of top 10% players on that day.
Each player gets points for solving a puzzle based on own solving time and others’ solving times. Exponential distribution is used.
Total points for a player is sum of puzzle points over 7 weeks.
