I'm having trouble understanding the rules to the linked consecutive sudoku. Could you clarify what is meant by "The edges that are adjacent across two different grids"?

Thx

Yes. There will be only one PB, with rules from "Our Universe"

The password protected Puzzle Booklet has been uploaded on the submission page.

Notes about Online solving:


1. Players solving online can check the results only after 111 minutes. Bonus will be computed based on last submission time.
2. Hamle Sudoku will not have marking possibilities on the left grid.

Hi Prasanna, the timers on the submission page seem to suggest the contest will only be open on April 19-20, not 19-21 as advertised. Would it be possible to extend the test to also run on Monday as I think was initially planned, since I am not sure I can do it within the currently listed 48-hour window? Thanks, Denis

For Quad Max Sudoku, does the rule imply that if an arrow is not provided, that number is not greater than all the remaining 3?

I think thats mostly an error. We do intend to run it on Monday too like we usually do with LMI Contests now. I missed it, it should be fixed by tomorrow morning (India time). Sorry for the confusion.

No added implications. Only where the arrow is provided, the digit must be greater than the remaining 3. No Min/Max restrictions otherwise.

I also presume THEY will solve THEIR contest.

Will there be a unique classification at the end, including both US and THEM? Or there will be a separate / different leaderbord for each universe? Or the average of the two rankings for each player with his/her counterpart?

Anyways,
Awesome test Prasanna. Thanks for beautiful puzzles.
My favourite: Hamle
I did many mistakes while solving like trio, arrow and had to reprint page. I bymistakely entered wrong answer in classic sudoku dont know how, but corrected it immediately as instant grading is there.
Could have completed two more if no mistakes at start, linked and maxed quads.
But Overall i felt i have improved in sudoku than previous performances.
Thanks again LMI and prasanna. Will have to solve remaining ones later.
But wanted to request that" can we submit the other puzzles even after time is over just to check if its correct or not? - at present it displays cannot submit after 111 min "

That was horrible. I don't think I have done this badly on a contest for a while now. It was my fault that I spent way too much time on the linked consecutive and quad max......

A fairly good contest for me. As Aaron says the linked consecutive was a bit vicious and I had to force through the solution and costed me some time.
IMHO The Hamle was the best one, very logically constructed.

That was a feast of sudokus!Last night I was thinking how it would be like to complete all sudokus except the 2 155 pointers and end up with 800 points.I remember number 8 as being the last thing on my mind before I dozed off....
So the first thing I did during the test was keeping the 2 bigger pointers seperately away from the rest and solve the remaining.As I see, this had worked to my advantage.Not sure if I would have touched even 500 if I had got a bit 'greedy' and attacked any of the higher valued ones.
Keep my story aside and the test itself was incredible and fascinating!
Of the ones I completed ,the stand-outs that I liked very much were Palindrome Search sudoku,Arrow sequences Sudoku and Consecutive sudoku in that order.Looking to complete the Hamle and Quad Max later.
Incredible test Prasanna with lovely solve paths in all !Keep up the good work.Oh! should I say this to the Prasanna from the Parallel Universe too?! :-p
