 What was your opinion of the distribution of easy/hard puzzles? Just right
 What did you think about the puzzle quality of the test? Fairly Nice

 Of the puzzles you solved/attempted, how well did the point values reflect the difficulty? Most puzzles were worth the right amount


Thanks for the sudokus Akash.Was an easier test compared to the last two.
Favourites were Arrow Thermo and Scattered 9*9s
Felt I was sluggish and slow while solving and it waa reflected on the scoreboard.

 What was your opinion of the distribution of easy/hard puzzles? Too many hard puzzles
 What did you think about the puzzle quality of the test? Very nice
 Which set of puzzles did you like the most? Outside Frame Sudoku
 Of the puzzles you solved/attempted, how well did the point values reflect the difficulty? Most puzzles were worth the right amount


Though,I felt that the contest was on the harder side sudokus were excellent with quality aesthetics and tremendously challenging and enjoyable solve paths.

I started with the odd fortress (11) and for some reason, it took me a lot of time to figure out the continuation.Classic (7) too at the end took some effort and I had to guess my way through it.My favourites are Outside Frame (11) and Scattered (16).Rest were fun too !

Thanks for the great contest Akash ! I really enjoyed it.

This is my favourite set of the season. Since I have done with my season this is great end of 2019 SM for me.
Akash the aesthetics are just great and lot to learn for us to come near to this quality.
Thanks for the great set.

The balance was nice. Difficulty was easier than few previous tests. I should have completed the set, but got stuck in high scattered Sudoku. I solved it later, that 6 in center was key to find and then it break through.
Wonderful themes and puzzles.
Thanks Akash.
Looking forward to the final one.
Regards,
Swaroop

Dear Admin,

I just couldn't take the SM Irregular & Hybrid Test last weekend due to Good-Friday/Easter weekend. And now I am flooded with work after a long week-end at work. Is it possible to extend the test by a day or two.

Thanks

with regards,
Daniel Victor

One of the best SM rounds across the years. Very nice set of sudokus and well balanced.

Favourite sudokus: 9x9 Scattered, 9x9 Irregular, 9x9 Odd Fortress

Thanks Akash!

really enjoyed the test by Akash. feeling happy to complete the test within time

as most have pointed out that scattered was the toughest in this round. Strangely it is but didn't felt like that. Actually i solved scattered 9x9 in less time as compared to all other variants. irregular tookk me most of the time.

favourites were arrow thermo and odd fortress not to forget 9x9 classic 1&2.

really looking forward to many such rounds from Akash and learning some creation tips too from him which may result in me creating for SM hopefully next year.

Though I couldn't solve many sudokus during the test, I found them good and could solve almost all. I found Irregular (9x9) toughest of all. The 5 pointer Classic-1 (9x9) took more time to solve than the 7 pointer Classic-2 (9x9). I enjoyed solving the Arrow-Thermo (9x9) and Outside-Frame (9x9) too. But my favourite of this round was Scattered (9x9). I could have done better but lost much time in Classic-1 (9x9) and Irregular (9x9), that too wasn't successful during the contest. Inspite of this, I thoroughly enjoyed solving all the grids. Each one having nice solve path. Thanks to Aakash for creating wonderful sudokus.

Answer keys should be validated by atleast 2 - 3 testers. This is just my opinion. I got the keys for nearly 70% of the puzzles by the time I had finished 60% of the puzzle. Great Job Akash. I know I was supposed to co-author this with you but had to back out due to personal commitments. Really nice to see you take this up alone and you did a really good job. The easy - medium set of puzzles is a nice change from the hard sets we have seen This will bring back average solvers to the groove.

Glad this test was extended. I knew I was having a good day when the Irregular and Scattered (my worse fears) fell neatly.
Thanks for the test! My first top-10 in a sudoku test :)
