Lots of new variants - to be expected from Prasanna :)


Out of the Classics, only Not Alone and Balance Loop haven't appeared in multiple LMI contests before (not counting Three-Point Snake since the additional rule from normal snake is minimal and actually can make things easier). Some of the variants are probably newish. Anyway, here are some practice links.

Outside LITS - http://www.gmpuzzles.com/blog/?s=Outside+LITS
Balance Loop - http://www.gmpuzzles.com/blog/?s=Balance+Loop
Not Alone - http://puzzleparasite.blogspot.in/search/label/Not%20Alone - Just one unless you have the enthusiasm to deduce which grid is the Not Alone from the Matchmaker, but that one has a really cool deduction as a break-in.
Statue Park, Gapped Kakuro & Loop The Loops have both appeared in past LMI Marathons, so solving those should get you more than enough practice on the two types. Other than that, some Loop The Loops will be on my blog, https://prasannaseshadri.wordpress.com/ and some Gapped Kakuros should be on GM Puzzles and Serkan's blog, https://yureklis.wordpress.com/ . Statue Park will be on GM Puzzles too. Full Tapa will be found in a past Tapa Variations Contest, and Fillomino [Stars] in Fillomino Fillia and on Palmer's blog, https://mellowmelon.wordpress.com/ .

In Statue Park it says:

Answer key: Enter the first three pentominos seen along the marked rows & columns. (– if not enough pentominos).

Since the bank is not necessarily the set of pentominoes, I suppose it should read "three shapes" (and "not enough shapes") instead?


Yes. Will be changed soon.

Include 3x3/4x4/ and so on. With the image shown above for A, 3x3 and above isn't possible but it is for D, B and E (and C has many squares).


Just noting to anyone viewing this point of the forum - Practice links posted on page 1.

in B3, As easy as ABC (numbers) judging from the solution after "Letters ’x’ and numbers ’n’ outside the grid indicate that ’x’ is the ’n’th letter in that row or column" you should specify "looking from that point of view" (or similar wording). otherwise it's ambiguous

"Players submitting all 35 puzzles correctly are eligible for bonus points."

How much are the bonus points?

"Answer key: Enter the first three shapes seen along the marked rows & columns. (– if not enough shapes). For the example the answer key is OL-, Z--, OT-, LSI"

Since the tetromino bank doesn't have any S, I suppose the S in the fourth answer should have been Z?

It is not ambiguous; if the letters and numbers are given on the left of grid, it is implied that it should be looked from left to right, same for numbers given at bottom, top and right of the grid.
