I had great fun solving the puzzles.Answer keys for four Winds and Eight winds (length of longest line segment) were too confusing to me.As I hadn't looked at the answer keys before starting the test , I opened the IB and understood how the answer key worked which took some time.Tents' too could have been better .But this apart, a great set.

Still struggling to solve the left out wranglers (14 pointer) .I have just 2 clues remaining (10 & 8)with rest all fitting well.But just unable to reach a solution. Breaking my head over it :-p

Favourite puzzles are Battleships (8 pointer), Hitori (3 pointer) and Area Division (10 points).

Thanks Rohan .Nicely constructed !

I also found the puzzles very good and with the right balance easy-difficult. Got through most of the easy ones very quickly and after 41 minutes with only 4 puzzles left to solve I started to key in my answers. But it took me more than 10 minutes just to file the answer keys for 18 puzzles! Far too long!! Then I solved three more puzzles quickly and then.... the last wrangler! 22 minutes left, I got the grasp of it relatively quickly but was stuck with the bottom left corner and the last two clues.... until I saw the light with only two minute to go.
Could have been a nearly perfect round. At least it has been a round in which I could complete the task. Doesn't happen often, when it happens is exhilarating. Thanks Rohan for an exciting contest.

Really enjoyed this test.
I liked the 4 winds and the 8 winds sets most of all.
Weirdly, I got the 8 pointer Battleships in less than 1 minute,whereas the 4 pointer one took me quite a while.

Didnt have much time to finish the wranglers.

Anglers answer key was a pain tbh,counting the number of turns took a while.

Thanks to Rohan for an enjoyable test :)

Some grids need more margins, like grid 2 in wranglers has its heading so close to grid 1 that it looks like the 22 and 14 could be fish for grid one.

2/5/8 (especially 8) seemed undervalued to me but I guess I'm not really fast at grinding easy puzzles on large grids.

Very nice contest!

Well the overall puzzles were pretty good,but puzzle 10 has multiple answers and puzzle 19 was too simple and easy.
And summiting the answer key took so long.

I took participation in Puzzle Ramayan (4th-8th of January) for the first time after long break and I am very embarrassed, beause I can't open a "score page" on my notebook and my smartphone as well and I am not among 300 best solvers, so up to now I don't know how many points I've obtained and on what position I've finished. So I probably will resign to take participation in any of the next competitions, nevertheless I took participation in World Wide Puzzle Championship in Eger (Hungary) in 2005.

Hi Wojciech,
You have scored 33.4 Points. You are at #148 position out of 188 participants.
I would request you to please do not stop participating.
Regarding the score page, you would need an adobe flash plugin in the browser. Smartphone browser does not support that. Not only you but even we can't open it in the smartphone. I don't know if notebook as well supports it, so please check that. Best way to access score page is through laptop browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla, Opera etc.
If you have further difficulties please feel free to ask in the forum, we would be happy to assist you.

Thank you for your suggestions. I've just tried to open "score page" using Google Chrome and I've opened it succesfully. Of course I'll try to take participation in next competition, because it'll be a good preperation before semifinals of Polish Championship in Puzzles and Sudoku, which every year are organised in February.

Best regards,

Regarding Flash requirement, I'm still curious why LMI still uses Flash instead of e.g. JavaScript or something that WPF Grand Prix, USPC, etc use.
