Some more practice. The Instruction Booklet's Inside Skyscrapers example was taken from the Instruction booklet of Best of LMI Mocks. Obviously, this means there is another one in the Puzzle Booklet. Note - it is under the name "Hidden" Skyscrapers. Also, I wrote one of these as practice for the World Sudoku Championship last year, and it can be found on my blog here . Note - this has diagonal arrows too which won't be there in the competition puzzle, but it is still nice practice nonetheless. For this puzzle, digits can repeat for diagonal arrows and same numbers can block each other as far as visibility goes.

There are Search 9s and Descriptive Pairs (there may be overlap with the Instruction booklet as I used some of my old Sudokus as examples) on my blog.

The rest of it is mostly common types. The Expanded Sudoku is a slight tweak to the ISC 2013 variant, Overlapping Sudoku, so that should be helpful as far as this form of thinking goes.

Beginners' Sudoku Contests should help for all the common variants.

The only thing left is Fortress I think, there are two I quickly found on Bastien's blog, but you should find more with searching a little through the LMI Monthly Tests.

Since you have already registered, all you have to do is login on the link given below when it comes active on Sunday, and participate. I'd advise you to download the Instruction booklet in the same link, read it carefully, and ask any doubts you may have in the ISC Discussion thread (2nd link given below).

Update - Section 2 clarification


The older version of the Instruction Booklet had Section 2 as 8~20. Please note that that has now been changed to 11~20. This is significant only in case of tied scores.

Last year the bonus points allowed upto a max of 4 wrong cells ( I guess allowing for typos) but in this year's IB I do not see anything. So is my assumption correct that if there is even 1 wrong cell, a player does not get the bonus points?

Secondly a minor technicality in the IB. In the Bonus section it is mentioned "Players submitting all Sudokus will get seven points per minute saved as bonus". I thnk it would be better if we added "Players submitting all correct answers" or something to this effect. Technically I can submit all wrong answers too. Nothing major but just an observation.

Instant Grading is enabled this year, so unless you keep submitting things wrong, you don't have to worry about that. :)

Prizes

Apart from determining the National Sudoku Champion, we have some prizes to offer the top 10, in the form of LMI Merchandise.

The top 3 participants receive a Logic Masters India mug, with their position displayed on it. Participants ranked 4th ~ 10th place will receive a Logic Masters India photo magnet.

After the ISC, the top 10 here and in IPC will be e-mailed with a request for their address in order to send the prizes. Some of the IPC winners have already sent us the details, which have been noted.

Also, participation certificates will be e-mailed to everyone, but if you want a signed hard copy of the certificate with your rank, it will be couriered to you for a fee of Rs. 99. Please mail at prasannaseshadri@logicmastersindia.com if you want to order a hard copy.

Just to clarify, this will only be for the rankings in the official results.

Clarifications about Bonus eligibility

Since Instant Grading is enabled, "Submitting all Sudokus" means submitting them correctly. Also, with the diminishing points system of IG, participants are still eligible for bonus if they score 0 points on individual Sudokus but they have to submit all Sudokus correctly even knowing it'll get them 0 points if they want to be eligible for time bonus.

Hi Prasanna,
In Inside Skyscraper Sudoku, I wonder why below line is mentioned. Just want to make sure i am not missing anything since every cell can have 4 arrows under the given rules.

"Not all possible arrows are marked."

It just means that converse rule does not apply. For example in XV sudoku all possible Xs and Vs are marked. Similarly in Consecutive sudokus all possible dots are marked.
But in Inside Skyscraper all possible arrows are NOT marked.

See R2C9 : It is valid put a left arrow, but the author didn't mark it.
See R5C1 there is no down arrow (only right arrow is marked)
