I would advise the LMIans to prefer the one with the solid lines as my printer had a problem with the former and completely missed printing the dotted lines in between.I would stop myself short here by saying that the Fillomino puzzle by itself is absolutely delightful and perfect!!!Good luck to all!

Fillomino seems to suffer the slightest ambiguity at the very end, and not affecting the key (unless I somehow messed up): R13C2 and R13C3 contain some permutation of 20,1.

R13C2 and R13C3 have no ambiguity.

Why is Hidoku listed with 4 players when it hasn't been uploaded yet?

Finally got it after a lot of erasing. I guess I'm used to Nikoli nurikabes that never seemed that hard. Need to figure out new theorems or guess better.

It's half-time for me (5 puzzles solved). This contest is always so interesting.
A question about the results : because of the calculation, it is not possible to have the complete score, with bonus, before the competition ends, but we could see the problems solved, the time used... Is this "the results that will be available soon ?"

Score page is now available. Please note, the bonus computation is not corrected (updated as per this year's rule) yet. It will be corrected some time soon.

Link, as usual, http://logicmastersindia.com/2015/03P/score.asp . You can only view the scores of puzzles that you have solved.

Is it possible somewhere on the score page to display the number of incorrect submissions? I'm so happy I do not have any.

It would have been much better to present the words in a monospaced font (courier) for the scrabble loop puzzle.

First, I'm not done yet; I broke Summon whee. Also, not particularly good scores; I think I shouldn't solve these when I'm sick.

Among the other nine puzzles, Hidoku (or Hidato) strikes me as the most impressive, requiring pretty much no bifurcation or long what-ifs, and of course the long tail is impressive. Regional Coded Snake follows next with how the global-level logic goes, and Fillomino with how the big minoes interact midway during solving. I'm not sure Summon gets into the top three even though I haven't fully solved it. Of course, each puzzle has its own spark, but those that linger with me the most are those three.

Excellent marathon; I'll pick up Summon again later, then wait for the next Marathon.

The instructions state: Each puzzle can be started, solved and submitted independent of others, and in any order, anytime during the week.

This is clearly false. It is not possible to start two puzzles at the same time.

Sorry that you had troubles, but surely no trial and error was intended.
At the same time certainly it was supposed to be in Medium category and not easy.
But none the less it had few new starts and tricks, for e.g. each corner was unique in itself and then setting the path for "23" clue. The tricky part is finding the isolated 3*2 region in the center of the grid which helps to solve the "23". And of course the ending at the center was tricky again with 8,5,4 interaction.
I am sure it would be fun if you wan't to give it a try again to go logically and ask if stuck somewhere.

Good luck with Remaining Marathon Puzzles :)

I have a w1 on my Summons and I don't know why. I presume that means I submitted wrong once. However, I have only submitted once in total.

w1 = worst (1)
w2 = worst (2)

It has got nothing to do with wrong submissions.
