... Anyway, I hope everyone enjoyed both the classics and the variants. Thank you all for participating!

Thank you to you, Deb and the other organisers for a very enjoyable contest. Finding a Windoku as the Extra Regions puzzle was a pleasant surprise. I found the Frame puzzle heavy going for a while, but it really taught me the value of triplet-thinking as you mention : in general when dealing with variants, it's normally helpful to also remember to apply the basics such as rows, columns and blocks summing to 45 (including the middle block in this case).

If I read the Renban rules correctly, a line which is a closed loop in a 3x3 block is impossible (since consecutive digits in a block must be a chain, which cannot possibly close as a loop). What am I missing?

Please note that order of digits inside the line does not matter.

About one month ago, Deb came to me with idea to prepare Variants for March test.
I usually don't make sudokus (and puzzles), but in last few months I created some sudokus and puzzles and decided to confirm to Deb.
I have some troubles and errors during test preparation, but at the end I'm glad that I succeeded to finish sudokus for test.
Deb, thank you!

One of the Variants (Renban) left from sudokus I created for Serbian round of WPF Grand Prix (Nikola, Cedomir and Zoran made rest), so I use a chance to invite all of you to play also in about two weeks from now.

Beginners' Contest March is over.

Congrats to nyoroppyi (Japan), dp_94 (India) and affpuzz (USA) for achieving the top positions.

Among the seasoners, janoslaw (Poland), Timothy (France) and Gotroch (Czech Republic) lead the standings.

Thanks to Branko Ceranic for authoring an enjoyable set of Sudokus.

On a personal note, the Frame and then the Renban were my favorites. I'm quite surprised at a top 10 finish, I didn't think it went all that well while solving. Looking forward to the Serbian GP now :)

We can't see anything wrong at our end, and your profile's Country field is empty, so you've not done Step 1 completely. Do remember that if you are participating for the first time, filling out the Country field is mandatory.

Hi Sanchita. The only contest going on right now is the Indian Puzzle Championship, but the official part of that is over.

Beginners' Sudoku contests are held regularly through the year, and if you just look at the forum once in a while, you'll see the latest ongoing contest in the top right of your screen.
