Update - Scoring system

After the first 3 rounds, we have noticed that it is very difficult to maintain a consistent difficulty level across rounds. This means, under the current scoring system, some rounds will become discards by default, which negates the discard advantages. So, we have decided to alter the scoring system to scale the scores in comparison to the best score for each round, starting at 100 and going lower. For the Sudoku Mahabharat rankings, it will be the best Indian score among eligible players. For the International rankings it will be the best score in the round.

We are working on it. Since we plan for the finals to be around July (based on last year we wanted participants to have enough time after the 8 rounds to decide and finalize their trip), I think its not a problem if the announcement takes a while longer.

If its not announced yet, that generally means its not confirmed yet :)

Hi, welcome to LMI! We planned the Sudoku Mahabharat and Puzzle Ramayan events with 8 online rounds to encourage regular participation among Indians. Rewarding regularity is important to us. Also, it is unfair to participants who were told they needed to do 8 rounds to qualify and also unfair to those beyond the top 50 who didn't qualify if we grant entry to newcomers at this stage.

However, I suggest that you use this time to train and improve yourself because if you are new to LMI, then odds are you are new to variations and the difficulty that exists at the National level. With some hard work you can improve and maybe get a really good rank in future competitions. You can download all the online rounds of Sudoku Mahabharat as well as other LMI contests here - http://logicmastersindia.com/forum/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=60&st... . Practice them and see how you fair at solving them. Feel free to ask doubts and queries on the forum if you are stuck at a particular variant or something. There will be more National level events coming up both this year and next year, probably including the Times Championship the other member asked about above, so you will surely get a chance to participate at some point, and its better to start preparing for that even if you were too late this time.

Can someone explain Mirror Sudoku mentioned in Round 2.

It was there in the 6th round of SM: Twisted Classics.

Box-1 and Box-9 are mirrored about the centre.
Box-3 and Box-7 are mirrored about the centre.


Cells marked with same alphabets contain the same digit.

Thanks Rohan. Bad that I have missed it in the prelims also. Is it always Box 1 and Box 9 mirrored and Box 3 and Box 7 mirrored. The Rules states
"The four corner boxes (top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right) all contain the same digit in symmetrical positions with respect to the center of the grid. "

How does all contain same digit in symmetrical positions with respect to centre of grid. Am I missing something in the Rules here.

Here is another way of looking at it. If you turn the solution by 180 degrees, digits still remain same in box 1, 3, 7, 9
