About Classic Tapa Contest - 2016

  • Classic Tapa Contest (CTC) 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 TVC 2016 ends), 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.
