For a) I meant that if the arrow sequence starts with 5 it can go maximum upto 10 cells.
Thanks for explaining in more details about other arrow sequences.

Rules are highly unclear.The example doesn't help much in illustrating the rules.5 paths / 10 shaded cells in each grid or in all grids ?? Where are the paths ? What are the rules of the example ?


Agreed - the IB is truly terrible. It would have been trivial to highlight the paths in the solution, and it wouldn't have been much more effort to explain which path followed which rule.

Thoroughly enjoyed this puzzle!! I found it difficult but very engaging. Examples of paths in IB would have been good though.

Agreed, a lovely puzzle. Thanks to the author and organizers.

Yes the paths would have been nice to have in the instruction booklet, but it's really not a big deal, easy to figure out by trying to solve the example. And I can see how marking all variants of the paths could have been messy, or misleading if just one was marked.

Fantastic construction and good puzzle Rajesh.I presume it must have been painstakingly long to design this grid .I was surprised seeing my standing in the results as I didn't particularly expect to do it well given that I couldn't even complete the IB one. But it went great and was fun solving the contest. I greatly enjoyed how paths interweaved between grids and how the incremental arrow path travelled such far.At some point, understanding the global logic like how the OL path had to go around the COL path helped greatly and it was enjoyable seeing these steps.I can understand why this was rejected for WSC (possibly due to round time constraints).Only negative about the whole contest is that time must have been spent framing the IB rules as it was too vague and could have encouraged more participation if it only had been more clear.
