Country : India  Scoring: We will have two separate leaderboards. One would be considering the puzzle points and daily standings based on time. The other would be for early bird submissions, a similar concept to the time trials recently conducted as part of the World Puzzle Convention. Main Leaderboard:  A – Top 100 players get points from 100 to 1 based on their ranking for that day. If there is a tie in the time, then both the players get the same points (i.e., let’s say there is a tie for 5th place, the tied players all get 96 points)
 B – Puzzle Points – This will remain unknown until the end of the contest.
 Live contest results will be used to calculate these points.
 A total pool of 1600 points for 16 puzzles is reserved.
 At the end of the contest, the Average time for each puzzle using top 10 solvers’ times will be calculated.
 Based on these times, each puzzle will be allocated appropriate points
 Final Ranking – Cumulative of A + B for each day.
Early bird Leaderboard:  There are 16 puzzles, with each puzzle dropping live every 30 hours.
 The choice of 30 hours allows a fair share of puzzles at convenient and notsoconvenient times.
 The starting time for each separate puzzle will be the same for all the contestants.
 C  Top 100 players get points from 100 to 1 based on their ranking for that day. If there is a tie in the time, then both the players get the same points (i.e., let’s say there is a tie for 5th place, the tied players all get 96 points)
 Final Ranking – Cumulative of C for each day.
