A great set of puzzles, my thanks and congratulations to the author (authors? Not stated anywhere I've found, although Prasanna undoubtedly had a major role).


Section A - Deb
All other sections - me.
Testers - Bram (who helped with the submission page too), Bastien, Vladimir, Tiit. Thanks again to all of you.

Glad you enjoyed it. Thank you :)

Thanks to Prasanna and Deb for organizing IPC. Wonderful puzzles as always.

I definitely felt better this year than last year and the dreadful year before last. Except for a couple of small minor stumbles, the test went fairly smoothly for me. Missed the 1000-score, probably needed another 10-minutes or so :-)
Congrats to Amit and Swaroop for 2nd and 3rd. This is the team I predicted and I hope we can achieve India's best rank at the WPC this year assuming we perform consistently and assist Prasanna's tremendous run at the WPCs recently.

Rajesh, seems to be having a year of just missing out. Missed TSC finals by a rank, and now missed the A-Team by a rank. But good to see you still up there.
Ashish... what a wonderful performance. I think we're definitely going to have some interesting competition in the near future. Keep it up.
Rakesh, Jayant, Jaipal... the usual suspects :-)

Now that score page is released, Rohan great come back with such whooping score. Rest all ranks were too close , and just a matter of 1 puzzle here and there. I can certainly say that the Gapped Kakuro submission submitted just before few seconds of time, rescued me to top 3 spots. Well done once again all of you. Congrats to all once again. Ashish really very well performed and significant improvement from last year.
Once again Thanks to Prasanna and Deb for such a wonderful test.

In the results section, a column named 'Claim' was there with the annotation 'Claim Point/No Penalty'; it was got clicked accidentally. What was that?

 Did the Instructions Booklet (IB) provide enough information about participating in IPC? Yes, mostly.
 Did you understand the puzzle rules, examples and answer keys from the IB? I understood most of them.
 Did you find enough easy puzzles to solve during the championship? Yes, there were many of them.
 After your experience in IPC, are you going to participate in future championshiops or contests at LMI? Most likely

IPC and ISC start very late in the weekend for most international players, so some may not be able to participate. So we have never considered them for ratings.

35 puzzles in 150 minutes makes most of them to be easy, although there are certainly the harder puzzles. Naturally Kakuro wrecks my performance again; solved all 32 other puzzles in 115 minutes, solved C1 in 7 minutes, and got nothing for the rest two Kakuro in the remaining 28 minutes.

Excellent puzzles overall. Most are just okay symmetrical patterns with good solutions, although some are really nice surprise like the IPC and 2015 Statue Park, and the Outside LITS. I don't find Squares Count worthy of its 41-point status, perhaps because I managed to find a way to calculate the number of squares in a consistent manner. (Identical Pairs took more time. Did any of those solving on paper tried cutting the images and rotating them to make things much easier?)
